I don't know how long they lived in Massachusetts before moving to Chicago.


On Antonio Strangis's 25 september 1919 death certificate Francesco and Julia stated they were living in Chicago since 5 months (so, they moved to Chicago approx on april 1919) but they stated also that Antonio was born on 1 september 1918 in Niagara Falls - NY.
Maybe you can also request Antonio Strangis's birth certificate and see if it contains new details...

Thanks Laura,
How would I go about finding out info from Italy? Who would I contact and how hard is it to get? Since Antonio was born in Niagara Falls and that is where I live would I just go to City Hall?

You need to write to the town hall of Lamezia Terme (Sambiase belongs to this Comune/town
http://italia.indettaglio.it/eng/calabr ... biase.html ) and ask for Francesco Strangis birth act, on this site you can find some form letters in italian:

http://www.circolocalabrese.org/resourc ... /index.asp

It's better to specify in your request that Francesco was born in Sambiase (Since 1968 Sambiase itself doesn't exist as a Comune but it was admitted with two other towns to create the Comune of Lamezia Terme)

the address is:

Comune di Lamezia Terme
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Via Sen. Arturo Perugini
88046 Lamezia Terme (CZ)
ITALY

Regarding Antonio Strangis's birth certificate in Niagara falls I believe you have to request the document here:

Thanks Laura,

Will I have to translate the letter to Italian? I wonder if they would also have info on Francesco Trunzo.

Thanks, Carol

Carol, the link I gave you it's a form italian letter generator....

I would advise you to ask for first for the person of which you have sure dates, so Francesco Strangis born in Sambiase on/around 16 january 1892 could be a good start point...

Thanks,
