Nardozza research

Postby boris673g » 30 Aug 2010, 02:29

Looking for more information about my great grandfather Francesco Nardozza and his wife Raffaelle/Rachel. He was from Rionero In Vulture and came to the US in 1908. Thanks!

Hello and welcome :-)

What information do you already have? Just so we don't duplicate efforts...

Can you provide some details such as approximate date of birth for both Francesco and Rafaella/Rachele? Where did they live in the US? Do you know Rachele's maiden name? Names of children, if any...

Since you have the date of birth for Francesco, and maiden name and approximate year of birth for Raffaela, you can write to the Comune of Rionero in Vulture.. to continue your search in Italy.

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Via Amedeo di Savoia, 9
85028 Rionero in Vulture (PZ)
ITALY

You should write the letter in Italian.
Here are some sites to help with form letters...

Send a self-addressed, unstamped envelope...

Thank you all soooo much! I had some of this information-but I cannot believe you found Rafaelle's maiden name-it's been driving me nuts! It really does look like DiMaio. PS-it looks like her name is actually Rafaella! I will go from there and definitely write to Italy.

Thanks again,

Jen

Glad to help Jen :-D

Rafaella's place of birth (according to the Naturalization record) was also Rionero in Vulture...
Let us know how you make out with the request...

Good luck :-D

Tessa,

Were you able to track down a Naturalization request for Rafaella? I only find one for Francesco. Thanks again!!

No Nat. for Rafaella... :-(

Her place of birth is indicated on Francesco's Nat. Record...
