My grandfather was born in Italy in 1899 and when he came from the US, he took the name Charles Angelo Leber. I know this is americanized so can some one help me find out what his last name could of been
Welcome to the Forum! We would be happy to help you look. What records (census, military, marriage) have you already found? We wouldn't want to duplicate your research. A quick search has a Chas Angelo Leber in OH in 1918, but he was born in Italy 1889 not 1899. This Chas Leber died in TX in 1972 ... Thanks, Valarie

The SS-5, or Application for Social Security Number is a great resource for learning more about individuals who died after about 1960, and generally includes the following: - Full name - Full name at birth, including maiden name - Present mailing address - Age at last birthday - Date of birth - Place of birth - Father's full name - Mother's full name, including maiden name - Sex - Race as indicated by the applicant - Whether the applicant ever applied for Social Security or Railroad Retirement before - Current employer's name and address - Date signed - Applicant's signature
Hey Biff! Thank you!, that's a great WWI card. Interesting choice of surnames - Cinti had a big German community. I think his place of birth is on his WWI card, but I can't make it out. Pretty sure the family moved to Missouri by abt 1932. Can't locate his WWII card. It's a shame there's no next of kin on his death certificate.. Valarie
Thanks everyone who posted something about by grandfather...I appreciate all that yall posted..On his WW1 draft card, the town where he was born is on there and I googled it and cant find it...I think he spelled it like it sounded. can anyone tell me what the town is...
Don't know if this death certificate could be of any help. It's a 1939 Missouri death certificate for Charles Roy Leber, age 14 son of Charles A Leber and Mary Spatz... In this document Charles A Leber stated that he was born in Engleside - West Virginia:
you dont understand what you found. This was my grandmothers brother who died when he was 14 and we never knew who he was. we have no pictures of him or anything. this is a great find...thank you very much..marie spatz left my grandfather(charles) and my grandmather when my grandmother was 2yrs and was never heard from again and things are slowly starting to piece together...thanks to all who have taken time to find and post things for me....
