Savastano / Stellato -from Caserta to Paterson, New Jersey

Postby jenz » 21 Dec 2010, 18:53

Hi there, I've got the 1920 and 1930 census records for Guiseppe & Maria (Stellata) Savastano along with Guiseppe/Aka Joseph's Draft Registration Cards. Does anyone have any further informtion about this family? More specifically who Guiseppe and Maria's parents were or definitive immigration records for them?
Thanks in advance!

Hi!
Abt what year was Giuseppe born?
If it was 1892 in Sala (comune of Caserta, region Campania)
He may be living with his parents in Patterson in 1910

He was born in Sala but his DOB was 19 May 1878
He arrived in the US in 1905 and that record indicated he was going to stay with his cousin Domenico Onorato on Essex Street in Paterson
Thanks for the response!

Thanks very much. The 1910 Census and 1907 manifest look very probable. If anyone else has any further information regarding this family, I'd appreciate it. I'm doing this research for a dear friend of the family.
