search for Catrambone naturalization

Postby DonDa » 20 Aug 2010, 13:42

I have been seeking my GGF's naturalization papers for months now and I am seeking a solution other than going through USCIS which entails months of waiting.

I have located his younger brothers' papers (both naturalized 1924) through the Cook Co.(Chicago, IL) Circuit Court archives and after looking through some old papers, located the naturalization of his older brother from 1916. The problem is I haven't located my GGF's naturalization. All I have is a declaration of intent dated 2/3/1919.

I have a hard time believing he wasn't naturalized due to the fact that all of his relatives at the time were and all of the other records I have for him were filled out correctly and in order. If he was naturalized, I believe it would be between 1921 and 1926 according to the DOI and it would have been in Cook County.

This is what I have my GGF Saverio Catrambone:

Saverio's Parents: Domenico Catrambone b: 1853-1915, Marianna Catrambone (Porine)
Saverio Catrambone
b: Gasperina, Italy 11/4/1879 or 1/1879
m: 1902?, Gasperina,Italy
a: 5/14/1903? NY
naturalized: ??
d: 7/1/1948


wife-Maria Teresa Catrambone
b: Gasperina, Italy 12/23/1884
m: Gasperina, Italy 1902?
a: 10/10/1907? NY
d: 9/19/1969

If anyone can shed any light on this, it would be much appreciated as I've spent months searching to no avail. If any more info is needed, contact me. Thanks...

I found his WWI & WWII Draft Registration and his 1920 & 1930 census. I put in a request yesterday through the USCIS program but that will take months. I also wrote to the comune in Gasperina requesting birth and marriage documents for him and his wife but I am not sure how long that will take, if they even respond at all.

Right now, my main focus is on the naturalization papers as that makes or breaks my application. I am fairly certain that my case is good as his declaration is dated 1919, my GF was born in 1915 and that I am still not certain he completed the naturalization process. All his older and younger brothers naturalized and I have their papers, but not for Saverio, my GGF. His 1920 census said papers filed and the 1930 census says he and his wife are naturalized but since they are self-reporting this doesn't mean much.

Any suggestions for finding those papers? His brother registered at the Italian Consulate in Chicago when he naturalized, so would the Itailian authorities have any records?

Your GGF was my GGU. My GGF was his older brother Guiseppe Catrambone. I would be very interested in knowing if you were able to obtain his naturalization papers.
