Giovanni Carano lookup

Postby aroberts » 25 Aug 2011, 17:59

I am wondering if anyone could do a lookup of Giovanni Carano, born in Italy (not sure when) died in Ohio (?) in 1958 and married to Marie/Maria. A daughter is Carmela Carano. I'm interested in any and all information about him, particularly who his parents were. Thank you!

There is a family tree on Ancestry.com for Giovanni Carano...
Is that your tree? Owner listed as "juviemom"
http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/9398285/ ... 1889274741

No source records there, but this information is listed...
born 1878 in Italy
died 1958
Wife Marie Putature (1874-1954)
Parents listed as Stefano Carano and Festra Poster(???)
Lists two living children and Carmela (1904-1999)

This may give us some details/clues to help in the search :-)

Are you certain about Maria / Carmela and their relationships?

Curious because I found this and just naturally begin to wonder:


1930 United States Federal Census about John Carano
Name: John Carano
Home in 1930: Bedford, Cuyahoga, Ohio
View Map
Age: 40
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1890
Birthplace: Italy
Relation to Head of House: Head
Spouse's Name: Carmela Carano
Race: White
Household Members: Name Age
John Carano 40
Carmela Carano 38
Frank Carano 11
Jay Carano 10
Mary Carano 7
Carmine

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)

On the above Family Tree there is a manifest for Carmela

Her name is listed in the manifest as Carmela Carano diFalco
She is 22 and leaves father Giovanni Carano in Carovilli
She is going to Wellesville, Ohio, to her husband Sabatino DiFalco
The line below her has daughter Lucia, age 2, listed by crossed out.

IF this is your Carmela, her father was in Italy in 1926... If he died in Ohio, we're looking for a manifest between 1926 and 1958 :-)

The Carmela above was married a second time to Michael Scipione... She died in San Bernardino California, does any of the above sound familiar?

Yes this is all correct, Carmela is my g-g-grandmother. I haven't been able to get past her parents so far. And when/where her parents were born is a bit cloudy.

If you think the above information is correct, then your Giovanni was probably born in Carovilli, Province Isernia, Molise Region.

You can write directly to the comune to request his birth record (about 1878).

Address:
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Via Costa Ospedale, 1
86083 Carovilli (IS)
ITALY


Write your request in Italian...

Maybe you can also request the marriage record to verify surname of wife Maria :-)

I am a bit of a newbie at this. I have found Giovanni's mother named as Festra Poster, but that is the only information I can find. I'm going to request the birth certificate on Giovanni, in your experience is there anything else I can do to learn more about his parents?

I don't think this is the correct spelling of Giovanni's mother's name :(

Looks like Giovanni spent most of his life in Italy. Your best bet is with his birth and marriage record. Both will have the names of his parents.

You will also find Giovanni's father's name on Carmela's birth record.

The marriage of Giovanni will have the correct spelling of his mother's name, and both of their parents' names...

Even though Giovanni died in Ohio his death record may be very inaccurate. Information provided by the living who may not know the facts.

:D
