Ancestry Search Help Needed

Postby DJP1812 » 14 Dec 2010, 17:46

Hi,

Can anyone help me with an Ancestry Search for any Naturalization Papers?

I am getting FTM for MAC for Christmas but can not wait to use it.

Ultimately I am looking for her Marriage Certificate, but other who have helped can not locate it. I am hoping that I can get more information from her Naturalization papers.

Thanks!!!

Location New York, New York
Born: May 16th, 1897 in Scafati, Italy

Anntoinette Paradiso 14
Mary Paradiso 12
Carmela Paradiso 8
Dominick Paradiso 6
Althsonia Paradiso 4 3/12

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your replies.

You are correct in all the data you found on Michele. Another user of this forum was gracious enough to assist me in finding all of it. The '30 census, WWI and WWII draft cards and his Naturalization papers.

Here is his enough it helps with the search on Grazia/Grace/Gracia.

Born: Dec 13, 1878
Location: San Giorgio La Molara
Arrived in US: September 18, 1904 from Buenos Aires (He went there before NY)

Question: Where did you get the Jun 2 1903 date from?

Thanks!,
Dominick

That's odd... Just found this on ellisisland.org... Maybe a different person, had no other record of this... There are a lot of Paradiso's from San Giorgio La Molara... Kind of shady.

Just found this on an Eastern NY Naturalization Index... Maybe this will help. If I can get an image (from footnote) or somewhere to confirm, that would be amazing.
