Tedeschi and Garganese

Postby billzluv » 13 Jul 2011, 22:15

My great grandparents were Rosina Garganese and Giorgio Tedeschi. They were born in the early 1880s. I believe Rosina was born in Taranto and Giorgio was born in San Giorgio. They immigrated to the U.S. in 1902-1904 and settled in Stonnington Maine. I believe that Giorgio had two brothers named Sevario and Guiseppi who also immigrated in the early 1900s. I would love to be able to locate birth certificates or other information on these people. Can any one out there help me?

Thank you!

Here is a small tidbit; can you confirm any of this info?

Boston Passenger and Crew Lists, 1820-1943 about Luigi Garganese
Name: Luigi Garganese
Arrival Date: 2 Aug 1907
Age: 23
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1884
Gender: Male
Ethnic Background: Italian (South) (Italian)
Port of Departure: Naples, Italy
Ship Name: Canopic
Port of Arrival: Boston, Massachusetts
Friend's Name: Giorgio Tedeschi
Last Residence: Lecce
Birthplace: Francavilla Fontatia Caranto, Lecce [I believe the record actually says simply "Taranto" with the other notations belonging to the previous line]

The first sheet of the manifest is missing or destroyed (at Ancestry . com, anyway). But, from the second sheet, we see that Luigi was coming to stay with his "brother-in-law Tedeschi Giorgio" at 192 North Street, Boston.

See line 9:

Take a look at the last two lines on this 1903 manifest. The 1910 census says Giorgio arrived in 1903; is this him and brother Saverio?

Thank you to everyone who provided information. You have helped me to verify that Sevario and George were brothers and that Luigi was Rose's brother. My grandmother is Jenny Tedeschi who is mentioned in one of the above census. I see that George (b.1884) and his brother, Sevario(b. 1876) were born in San Giorgio and Rose(born 1882) and Luigi were born in Taranto. From using Google Earth, I see that they are not too far from each other. Also, Luigi 's last known address was in Lecce, which is in the area too.

Now this is what I could use help with. How would I go about trying to get birth evidence for Rose and Luigi Garganese or Giorgio and Sevario Tedeschi? Also, Giorgio's first chld was born in Italy, her name was Mary Tedeschi Marcello, but I don't know if she was born in Taranto, San Giorgio, Lecce or somewhere else. There is a death certificate for Giorgio but what about Rosina? She also died in the 1920s although I don't know the year.

Again, thank you to everyone who is so helpful!!!
