immigration of naturalized citizens

Postby EdDiDo » 22 Mar 2011, 13:43

My grandmother's first husband, Fulgenzio Scalzitti, from Scontrone, Abuzzi, Italy immigrated in 1887 then again about 1900. I have not been able to find either immigration records. In the 1900 Census he said that he was a naturalized US citizen. As a citizen would his 1900 immigration records be on a different ship record manifest than those who were aliens?

Any thoughts

Typically, the same manifest, same search tools. Just a different page within the manifest - one specifically listing US citizens.

When was Fulgenzio born? Even a rough date would help...

Here is everything from Ellis under the last name you are looking for.
Nothing under Fulgenzio though. Only Scalzitti.

Also there are multiples with the last name of Scalzitti out of Scontrone. You could have many relatives here in America.

According to his 1900 census record and his marriage to Antonia Ranieri he was borth in 1869. He immigrated to the US in 1887. He was born in Scontrone, italy. His parents in Scontrone were father, Alexander Octauri Scalzitti, and mother Euphemia Tiritilli. Fulgenzio and his wife Antonia Ranieri, lived in Philadelphia Pa, on 810 S. 7th Street. They had four children, Carolina, Lydia, Angela, and Felicia. Both Angela and Felicia died within a year. Fulgenzio died sometime between 1905 and 1906, but I have not found the death record. Antonia and her two daughters, Carolina and Lydia moved to Chicago, Il in 1906 and Antonia married my grandfather, Giovanni Di Domenico (Sep. 1906), also from Scontrone. Now you have all the information I have on Fulgenzio. Antonia Ranieri immigrated to the US in May 1901, listing Fulgenzio as her husband, but they then married on June 22, 1901 at St. Mary Magdalen de Pazzi Church.
