Information on Family of Amleto Soldani

Postby soldi » 28 May 2012, 23:58

Looking for some help in obtaining some information on the family of Amleto Soldani. He was born in Castelcivita, a village in the Campania Region. He emigrated to the U.S.A. on the ship "Konigin Luise" out of Naples and arrived in New York on May 18, 1905 at the age of 17. He supposodly joined a cousin named Nicola and an uncle named Vito (sorry cannot read the surnames on the ship's manifest) at 356 W. 38th Street, NY. There is no other info on Amleto from that point. Would love to obtain any other data on him.

Thanks,
Soldi

Line #10 Amleto Soldani is traveling with next Line#11 Pasquale Magilano/UNCLE is Vito Magilano
I would say Nicola's name is Poto it is a surname of Castelcivita

In this 1930 Census, it appears that AMLETO has become HAMLET (to the ear of the census taker? :-) )
He is working as a butcher.
He lists his age at marriage as 21... so married about 1909-1910
Wife and children all born in Massachusetts. Maybe married there as well?

Thank you so much for the information Marty and Tessa78. You have provided a terrific starting point for me to really dig deeper into the family history of Amleto.

You are correct Tessa78 that Ercole is Amleto's brother. Ercole is my grandfather and I have a very detailed history of that side of the family. Amleto came to the USA at about the same time as Ercole did but landed in New York while Ercole arrived in Boston. That is why we could not trace what happened to Amleto. It appears that he also (at some point) made his way to the Boston area.

Would there be any death records for Amleto and his spouse Mary available?

Thanks so much,
Soldi

Due to privacy issues with more recent deaths, they usually cannot be found online.
You can request a copy from the city of Boston. HOWEVER, you must have all the information they request to apply. See this site
http://www.cityofboston.gov/registry/registerdeath.asp

Here are some resources for finding death records in Massachusetts...
http://www.deathindexes.com/massachusetts/index.html

I'll see what I can find as well. :-)
Do you have ANY idea when they may have died?
