Need Help: Death, Burial, Naturalization Records (CAFARELLI)

Postby lcafarel » 16 Mar 2011, 23:36

I have successfully found many family records online, but have hit a brick wall trying to locate death, burial, and naturalization records for my husband's ggrandfather, Vincent (Vincenzo) CAFARELLI. I wonder if anyone out there would be willing to search for me, hopefully with better luck.

Here's the information I have for Vincent:

-born in Ferrandina, Matera, Basilicata, in February 1855
-married Giulia Sarubbi in Accettura, Matera, around 1876
-immigrated to the U.S in 1879, returned to Italy several times, and brought the rest of the family over in June 1893
-was naturalized in 1895 according to U.S. Census records
-after living in New York City for a few years, settled in West New York, Hudson County, New Jersey
-worked as a mason
-last appears on the 1920 census dated January 17, 1920

I am about to order Grazia's death record from NJ because I narrowed her death to a few years, but I'd like to at least narrow down the date for Vincent's so a vital records order wouldn't cost as much.

Also, I have not found a 1930 census record with Grace or Vincent, but I know that she lived at least till 1936.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hi. I did check that site, but I will go back and check again. I searched on Ancestry.com, obituary lists, NewspaperArchives.com, New Jersey cemetery listings and tombstone transcriptions, but no luck on any of them. I tried all sorts of variations for the name on Ancestry, figuring there might be a transcription error, too.
