Lauletta - still need some birth, marriage and death informa

Postby lowlybworm » 06 Sep 2010, 21:34

I am hoping to find out some information about my great-great grandfather and great-grandfather.
Great-great grandfather: Nicola (Nicholas) Lauletta was born in Italy in July 1858. I can't seem to find out where in Italy or the exact date. He was married to Rosa who was born in 1865 in Italy and died January 3, 1902. I am trying to find out when and where they got married. I am also trying to find out the exact date of death of Nicholas in Philadelphia in 1928.
Great-grandfather: John (Giovanni) Lauletta was born in Philadelphia on June 15, 1889. I am trying to find his place and date of marriage to Isabel (Isabella) Guida. My guess is that is was in Philadelphia, but I'm not sure. I am also trying to find his place and date of death. It could have been anywhere but I know it was prior to 1941.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I believe that, being an early immigration, the arrival manifest for Nicola, his wife Rosa and son Giuseppe (Joseph) may be not helpful because possible it has only listed Italy as place of origin.... :?
Considering that Lauletta is not a common lastname, you can use this site to see the actual spreading of the lastname in Italy:

http://www.gens.labo.net/

digit Lauletta in "Cognome"... Looks like it is present especially in the Basilicata region, you can use this other site to know in which town of the Basilicata region it's present:

I noticed there are just a few Lauletta on the Ellisisland site and many of them were coming from Marsicovetere, some of them going to Philadelphia.... do you know of other relatives of Nicola?

Wow! Those are great websites. Thanks. I will have to do some more research about Nicola's relatives to see who might have come over with him. That was very helpful. Thanks again!
