Information about Domenico Giada

Postby alfanogiada » 05 Jun 2011, 01:53

Can anyone help me with information concerning Domenico Giada. Our information tells us that he was born on August 16 1889, in Venice. His parents (best that we know) were Guiseppe Giada and Pierina Busetto. After arriving in America (abt. 1906), he married Angelia Mirabella. We have some information about his family and life in the States, but we would greatly appreciate any possible help concerning his family in Italy. The following are names that we believe to be his siblings: Irma, Maddalena, Mario, Mercedes, and Germano. Thanks for any help!

Yes, that is my tree! We have (for years) hit a road block at Domenico on the Giada side. We have not had any luck piecing together definitive information in regards to the family in Italy or his siblings. Most of the info is gathered from what little family history was recorded decades ago.

The Death record mentions Palestrina as the birthplace (but we find that death records are the most inaccurate of documents because they rely on the information given by others who may or may not know the facts!)

That being said... you might try writing to Palestrina for the birth record of Domenico, and his mother (not sure where Giuseppe is from...)
Palestrina is in the Lazio Region, Rome Province.
If mother was born there, she was probably married there. This will be written as a notation on her birth record...

It can't hurt to inquire...you might get lucky :-)

Back to Giuseppe...

At this site you can see the distribution of a name in Modern Day Italy...
"Giada" is found mostly in the Veneto...

Thanks for the info and the help. I believe the birthplace should be Pellestrina, which is part of the Venetian Islands rather than the Roman location. I will look up the same address info for this location and see if I can get any info via a letter. Thanks!
