Gardella research

Postby dpbluec » 21 Feb 2012, 19:47

Hello! I'm researching my great-grandparents:

Maria Luigia Gardella (born about 1877 in Neirone) - she was widowed prior to her arrival in the US in 1900 (with her infant daughter Adelina in tow). Wondering about her first husband. Adelina born in Neirone as well in 1899.

She married Antoinio Gardella in Haverhill, Massachusetts, US in 1903 and the wedding license lists her parents as Michele and Rosa Gardella, residing in Neirone.

Antonio's parents are listed as Giovanni and Maria Gardella, residing in New York City, but I will track them down when I can get to the archives.

I am a Gardella. Grandfather Alessandro born in Detroit, MI in 1875 or therabouts. I think I might be one of the "lost" Gardella tribes. However, I live in NYC and know other Gardellas here who are most probably distantly related.

If I can help, let me know.

Grandfather Alessandro born in Detroit, MI in 1875 or therabouts


Hello Maddalena,

Antonio Alessandro Gardella was baptized in Detroit in the church of Saint Anna on the day 6 may 1875. He was son of Pietro Gardella and his wife Ludovica Bigeo (Biggi Maria Luigia)

image of the transcription in the birth register of the town of Neirone of Antonio Alessandro Gardella's baptism act in Detroit:
http://search.ancestry.it/Browse/view.a ... sid=&gskw=

I found the italian translation of his latin baptism certificate on the italian database on Ancestry.it, Pietro and Maria Luigia Gardella were not married in the U.S. They had two child in Detroit, Antonio Alessandro and Maria Virginia (she was born in Detroit on 30 december 1881 and batpized in Saint Anna Church on the day 8 january 1882)
So they came back to Neirone, Italy to marry after their child's births.

Marriage act number 24 - Year 1883

Groom: Gardella Pietro Luigi, age 33, single, carpenter, born and resident in Neirone, son of the late Antonio and of the living Lagomarsino Teresa Dina;

Bride: Biggi Maria Luigia, age 28, single, housewife, born in Priosa of Santo Stefano d'Aveto (today a fraction of Rezzoaglio) daughter of the living Agostino resident in New York and of the living Badaracco Cattarina resident in New York

Marriage date: 24 december 1883.

With the marriage act they officially recognized their two child, born in the U.S.

After the marriage in Neirone they left for Detroit, this is their 1887 arrival manifest (Pietro age 37 and Luigia age 31 with child Antonio age 11 and Teresa (possibly Maria Virginia) infant:
