masciovecchio/perazza...

Postby js1228 » 09 Aug 2011, 22:38

I am looking for information on the Masiovecchio and Perazza surnames, from Paganica, L'Aquila, Abruzzo. My great-grandmother, Lucrezia Perazza, came to the US in 1912 to join her betrothed. According to the manifest, his name was Amato Masciovecchio, although the documentation is hard to read. I believe they were married and had children in Pennsylvania, prior to his death in around 1918. Another man, Beniamino Masciovecchio (possibly Amato's cousin) joined her to raise the children and they then moved to Ohio. I cannot locate any information on Amato. The only additional information I have is that Beniamino's father is Enrico. I have found a man by his name via google, born in 1860 but I cannot confirm it is the correct person. Is Masciovecchio a common Italian surname?

Wow...thank you! This is obviously very helpful. :). I don't think I would have ever found this!!! The only thing I'm wondering about is that it shows his marital status as married??? My GG came over in 1912 and listed herself as single, although betrothed to Amato. That said, the name, timing and location are right on...is it possible that it's not him? Is that a common surname? Again, thank you SO much!!

after long search, this is the only Amato Masciovecchio emigrated... on Lucrezia arrival I read: "Husb" Amato Masciovecchio Bridgeville PA instead in
15th column " betrothed" so maybe it was a wrong info, as wrong was the final destination "Bridgeville" changed in Cuddy in 12th column

Lucrezia arrival:

pag 2 http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0028

Masciovecchio is a surname of L'Aquila and Teramo areas, no common surname, and the Amato arrival record is right surely....

Birthplace: Italy
Birth Date: 24 Apr 1892

instead in 1942 the nearest relative was Lucrezia:

Thank you SO much. I had found much of this info, however your insight is so helpful. :). Yes, unfortunately I don't think Amato appears in any census information as he arrived after 1910 and died around 1918, possibly in the PA flu epidemic??? It is possible that he fathered three children, including my grandfather, however we do not have long form birth certificates. I have heard that Ben and Amato were cousins, but I am not sure. Trying to piece together other family names that come up. Again, thank you!

hi,
you can try in LDS microfilms of Paganica civil records:
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library ... +Paganica+ &columns=*,0,0

so you can solve the relationship between Beniamino and Amato...

abt Amato children: you can say me the first names? and the birthyears and birthplaces... so maybe by children we can find the 1920 census and to have a better idea abt the family..
regards,
