Francesco Andolina (Santa Croce Camerina, Sicilia, Italy)

Postby Andolina112 » 03 Jun 2011, 05:29

Looking for more information my great grandfather, Francesco Andolina. The information I have is that he was born in Santa Croce Camerina in 1882 and emigrated to the United States via Palermo in 1905. I would love to learn some more information about siblings, parents, etc. Any help is appreciated.

Considering that at the time of his 1905 arrival Francesco stated he was going to Paterson NJ to join his brother in law Spinella Mariano, then is it possible that Mariano's wife Ermelinda Andolina was Francesco's sister?

4 december 1910:

Andolina Ermelinda, age 34, married, from Santa Croce Camerina, leaving in S. Croce her father Andolina Antonino (via San Isidoro) to Paterson NJ to join her husband Spinella Mariano.
She was travelling with her daughter Rosa Spinella age 1, with her mother in law Raimondo Rosalia (maiden name) , age 57, widow and with her sisters in law Spinella Gaetana age 14 and Antonina age 10

Do you know if Ermelinda was Francesco's sister?

19 december 1908

Andolina G. Battista (Giovanni Battista), age 18, barber, from Santa Croce joining his brother Francesco living in Paterson NJ 208 Market street (passage was payed by Francesco)... Giovanni Battista stated he was leaving in Italy his father Salv. (Salvatore) Andolina, so Ermelinda wasn't Francesco's sister?

Don't know if you already have the Declaration of Intention of Francesco, in the doubt:

there are several other Andolina born in the same place in the database...

her father Andolina Antonino (via San Isidoro)

It almost looks as if it lists only the name "Andolina" for the father's name?

The handwriting is "her father Andolina" and on the line below (the same statement for her daughter) the continuation of the phrase "Antonino - Via San Isidoro"
Via san Isidoro is the address of Antonino Andolina, Saint Isidore Street

I would love to be able to confirm his parents, though I have not been having any luck. Any additional help would be appreciated.

Have you requested Francesco's death act? Usually parents's names are listed...

Or I would advice you to contact your nearest Family History Center and ask them to rent the microfilm of the births acts in Santa Croce Camerina:

Title Registri dello stato civile di Santa Croce Camerina (Ragusa), 1820-1899
Authors Santa Croce Camerina (Ragusa). Ufficio dello stato civile (Main Author)

Nati 1871-1899 Matrimoni 1862-1880
FHL INTL Film 1546750

Having Francesco's correct birth date it would be easy for you to find his birth act. the birth act will show his parents's names , their occupations, the address of the birth...

link to find your nearest Family History Center:

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library ... et_fhc.asp

Or, you can write in italian to the town Hall of Santa Croce Camerina asking for Francesco's "Estratto per copia integrale dell'Atto di Nascita", here you can find some form letters in italian:

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

the address is:

Comune di Santa Croce Camerina
Ufficio Stato Civile
Via Carmine n. 95 P.T.,
97017 Santa Croce Camerina (RG)
Italia

I ordered a copy of the birth record, so we will see what it shows. I believe his wife, my great grandmother was from the same area. I believe her name was Maria (Mary) Iozzia. Any information on her family would be helpful, as I haven't been able to find much. Thanks.

I am new to this forum - just happily stumbled on it when doing some general family research. Andolina112 I have a very well researched family tree (initiated by a distant cousin). All of the individuals you inquire about/reference are listed on it - at least people with the same names/similar dates. Feel free to comment/contact me through this service and I will get you a copy!
