Surname Papapietro

Postby 5papas » 27 Sep 2010, 11:40

I am beginning a search on the name Papapietro.

Nicola (my great-grandfather) and Giuseppe (my grandfather) were originally from Genosa (Puglia), Italy. They emigrated to the US in 1904 and 1905 respectively.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Joe, I found all of these at Ancestry . com, a paid wbesite which offers a free trial (two weeks? I don't recall).

I have not yet found a 1920 census, although it is unlikely that it would add any significant new information compared to what has already been found.

Looks about right. Your find was tougher than all of mine, so we are about even score-wise. :)

Manifest for Francesca Pirolo Papapietro and children

Arrival NY, November 29, 1905 on SS Furst Bismarck
To husband Nicola Papapietro on North St. in Brooklyn, NY


Francesca Pirolo Papapietro, 38 (line 3)
Children:
Lorenzo, 17
Giuseppe, 15
Rosa, 10
Caterina, 9

There appear to be naturalization notations next to Francesca and Lorenzo, and a notation that Francesca's surname was amended in 1935, and an address notation of Skillman St. on 6.17.36.

Lines 3 -7
