Castello

Postby BeckyA » 16 May 2011, 22:30

Hi, I am looking for my great-grandfather George Castello. He was born October 15, 1835 in Milan, Italy. He came to the United States in 1854. I cannot find immigration records or records from Milan, Italy on his birth. Can anyone help me. Also I am not positive his last name was Castello in Italy. His marriage and death record list him as George Castello. His fathers name was George Castello too.

Thank you, Becky

it is probable that the surname was Castello or Castelli, Castiello.. maybe George could be no the first name; in italian spell George is Giorgio..
I cannot find the 1870 census, that maybe could be helpful also...

Thank you for the 1860 census with George Castello. I am thinking his first wife Mary Ingersoll is listed there too. It has her age at 14.

I don't think you'll find a COMPLETE list anywhere ...

but the next best thing is the Immigrant Ship Transcribers Guild site...
Here is what they have transcribed for Passenger Lists/NY arrivals from 1624 - 1939 :-D

If I could buy anything on the National Archive site can anyone tell what would be best to order to find what ship my great grandfather George Castello was on? He was listed on the census as immigrating in 1854. Thanks Becky
