Looking for Robustelli

Postby newuser123 » 03 Jan 2011, 00:37

I am trying to find out if I qualify for Italian citizenship through my great-grandfather's line. I need to know if my great grand father had my grandfather before or after he became a U.S citizen.

Grandparents
birth- nov 1st, 1915 yolanda merjero (mergero, Morgero)
birth- august 2nd, 1913 joseph (giuseppe was on the church record,) robustelli
I never saw the legal birth certificate, but we all called him Joseph
grandfather born in New York
Married dec 19, 1937

Great Grand parents (fathers side)
Emelia Robustelli (maiden I believe is antouacci)
Domenico/Dominick/Dominic/Dominico Robustelli
Believe he emigrated around 1905 (+/- 10 years)
Not sure what part of Italy

I see there are two different naturalization dates for Dominick Robustelli. I assume the one you bolded is the more accurate one because it is a military record, rather than a census record.

the more probable naturalization, second my opinion, it is the date declared on the trip of 1939:
July 29th 1919

and not the 1917 nat. year as he declared in 1920 census

Adelfio, this record is abt another Domenico Robustelli, also of Sarno, and with wife Virginia in Sarno and never before in USA;
the Domenico Robustelli ancestor of "newuser123" was married in New York and the wife was Emila Antonaccio; Domenico is in 1910 census living with parents in law.
