Searching for the family of Giuseppe and Brigida Calise

Postby siskojnash » 06 Sep 2011, 16:41

I am searching for information on the families of Giuseppe (Joseph) and Brigida (Bridget) Calise. I don't know Bridget's maiden name.
Giuseppe was born in Forio d'Ischia, Italy. Does anyone know where that is? Is it Sicily? He was born on October 2, 1884. He and Bridget were married on July 23, 1910 in Forio d'Ischia, according to the naturalization documents. Each of them had one. He arrived on September 6, 1910 in New York on the vessel America. They emigrated from Naples.
Brigida was born on July 15, 1887 in Forio d'Ischia also.
Their children were:
Vito, born April 21, 1911 in Brooklyn; Lucy, born January 23, 1913 in Brooklyn; Joseph, born September 1, 1914 in Brooklyn; Anthony, born in August 23, 1916 in Brooklyn; Mary, born April 2, 1919 in Brooklyn; Loreto, born on September 27, 1929.

Wow! Thank you! I wasn't expecting to be able to see Italian records, especially so quickly! I wonder what else is out there to find about the family. Do you know if the passenger list for the arrival on September 6th is available? I would like to be able to download that so that I can send it to Giuseppe's granddaughter. She knows a little about the family, but doesn't know dates for anything. I already have the naturalization documents and indexes for both Giuseppe and Bridget, although I don't have the oath of allegiance or declaration of intentions for either one. I think there were normally only the four documents involved in attaining U.S. citizenship, right?

Thank you. I just found the passenger list for Giuseppe Calise and his wife on the S.S. America arriving on September 5, 1910 in New York from Naples on the Ellis Island site. Is there any way that the two pages could be posted so that I can download them? Also, I was having a hard time reading what it said for where they were going once they came into the country. Does anyone know what it says? I saw they were going to New Jersey, but was hoping to maybe find another link in the family.
About the records on the family search site, is it possible to search those documents for names? I would think I could probably find out about whole new links to the family if there's a search button there that I'm missing.

Usually there are indexes on the last pages for the the different records the italian word is indice nati(birth) morte (death)
I will try to get you a copy of the manifest on ancestry.com
It says that Giuesppe Calise line 21 pg 2 is going to see his uncle Vito Restituto which possible is his mother Lucia Restituto's brother

Do you think the records might include birth dates for Giuseppe and Brigida's parents? Or for Vito Restituto? Just out of curiosity, have you happened to run into information like this for Castelbuono and Frazzano? I have been trying to find information on people from those areas also.

Was trying to grab an image of the manifest on Ancestry, but having some difficulty... :?

However... did find Brigida's Petition for Citizenship - didn't know if you had this... :D

Yes. I have that and the one for Giuseppe. They gave me the information I needed to ask about the family. The funny thing is that the two documents contradict each other with some of the dates. Do you think the oath of allegiance, declaration of intent, or other naturalization documents would be available for Giuseppe or Brigida? I didn't see those around. Thank you very much for taking the time with this.

These records are in Italian and not searchable the way other database records are.
For example...
Above birth record for Brigida Colella states that her father is 33 years old. So that would put his birth about 1854...
As Marty mentioned, there are usually indexes at the beginning or end of each "book" of records.
Using the link Marty provided, you go to "Nati 1854" and check the index. You will find Giuseppe Colella is listed as record #28 in that year. You forward through the records until you reach #28...
Here is POSSIBLE record:
Birth of Giuseppe Colella, son of Aniello 34, farmer -(who is son of deceased Vito)
Born on 12 February 1854 at noon, and presented at the town hall at 5 PM
Mother is Brigida Maschio, 30, his wife
Left side of page...

As you go through the indexes you may find the surnames repeated... check them for extended family possibilities :-)
