Emil Russo from Naples

Postby arusso0214 » 02 Jan 2011, 05:02

Hi. New member looking to find some information on great grandparents from Sicily region. I have been doing research through Ancestry.com and have gone as far back as I can on all tree branches to the first of each of the great grandparents who immigrated to the USA. I am hoping someone can help me here at IG.com. Any information on the people listed, their parents, siblings, children, marriages, birth certificates, etc would greatly help...

Emil Russo b: abt 1892 in Naples, Campania, Italy, arrival in USA abt 1905
Mary (UNKNOWN maiden name) b: abt 1895 in Naples, Campania, Italy, arrival in USA abt 1906

Children

Michael Russo b: abt 1910 in New York
Dominick Russo b: abt 1913 in New York
Millie Russo b: abt 1914 in New York
Lessie Russo b: abt 1916 in New York
Amelia Russo b: abt 1918 in New York
Thomas F Russo b: abt 2 May 1919 in New York
Joseph Russo b: abt 1922 in New York
Anna Russo b: abt 1923 in New York
Emil Russo b: abt 18 Jun 1929 in New York

Blanks to fill in would be birthdays, deaths, Mary's maiden name, parents of Emil and Mary if possible. If anyone here can help it would be great. If there are other resources I can use to help, please let me know.

Thank You

the birthplace could be Roccarainola ( Napoli province) or Roccabascerana ( Avellino province, however... near Napoli).. maybe....
the first name, Emil, I believe that is a anglicized version of Aniello...
and I found a:

coming from Roccarainola...
but it is hard if my suggestion is right...
all the best,

Thank you suanj. Your information has led me to Emil's:

Real name (with several spelling variatons): Emil, Emeil, Anielo, Aniello
Birthday: 8 Apr 1891
More accurate location of birth: Roccarainola, Napoli, Campania, Italy
Death month/year/location: Apr 1964 in New York
WWI Registration Card: Showed he had wife and 4 children by 1917
WWII Registration Card: Showed daughter Anna as contact in 1942
Social Security Death Index
and a possible Family Tree hit on Ancestry.com

Is there a way to find a birth certificate for him and possibly his parents names?

Now I guess I need to find a marriage certificate in New York around 1910 to find out Mary's information. I cannot find a 1910 Census with Emil on it and don't know surname to look for to find Mary.

the first son, Michael was born abt in 1910, so Aniello married before of 1910;
I found 2 records abt same spouses in Manhattan, changing the month of marriage:
1.
Russo Aniello Mar 16 1908 6517 (1908) Manhattan
DeLorenzo Tomasina Mar 16 1908 6517 (1908) Manhattan

2.
Russo Aniello Apr 26 1908 8540 (1908) Manhattan
DeLorento Comonssina* Apr 26 1908 8540 (1908) Manhattan

* De Lorenzo Tommasina

-----------------
in the Kings:
Russo Aniello Jan 21 1909 938 (1909) Kings
Allocca Raffaela Jan 21 1909 938 (1909) Kings

-------------
in the Queens:
Russo Aniello Jul 31 1910 1023 (1910) Queens
Doler Elvira Jul 13 1910 1023 (1910) Queens

I believe that the right record could be abt marriage with Tommasina De Lorenzo/DeLorenzo.. if Tommasina changed the first name in Mary, as aniello changed in Emil...

My grandfather had a brother named Aniello Russo, who came to America with his brother Gianni Russo they came first. Then my grandfather Guiseppe Russo came with his parents Michele and Carmella and his sister Lucia. They settled in Ozone Park, Queens.
