Hi - I need help! I am searching for my grandfather Giuseppe D'Amore from Frosolone, Abruzzi, Italia. Born Feb. 13 about 1877. His parents were Desidora (Isidoro) and Esabetta (Isabella) maiden name unknown. I was told he emigrated to USA as a "young boy" so I'm guessing sometime in the 1890's. He was in the USA by 1901.
I have been unable to locate anything about him in Italy. The family story is that he "jumped ship" and I'm not sure exactly what that means. I have not been able to locate him in Immigration and Passenger's List either.
I would appreciate any help, suggestions, or advice anyone can offer. Thank you.
I found just a Giuseppe D'Amore age 17, travelling with father Sabatino age 47 in 1893: New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Guiseppe Damore Name: Guiseppe Damore Arrival Date: 15 May 1893 Birth Date: abt 1876 Age: 17 Gender: Male Ethnicity/ Nationality: Italian Port of Departure: Naples, Italy Port of Arrival: New York, New York Ship Name: Bolivia
New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Sabatino Damore Name: Sabatino Damore Arrival Date: 15 May 1893 Birth Date: abt 1846 Age: 47 Gender: Male Ethnicity/ Nationality: Italian Port of Departure: Naples, Italy Port of Arrival: New York, New York Ship Name: Bolivia
final destination: New York
but it is hard to say if correct arrival... regards, suanj
Thank you for your quick reply. I have seen that entry but didn't feel that it was my grandfather because of the father's name Sabatino is not his father's name. Could it be another relative? Possibly, but also I remember my own father saying that Giuseppe came over by himself.
Do you know if there are any records available from Frosolone? Or what Roman Catholic parish(es) were in the area there?
I have been very frustrated with this search and really want to know more about him.
Hi you can order Frosolone civil records by LDS center in or near your residence: Registri dello stato civile di Frosolone (Campobasso), 1809-1899 Births, deaths, marriages, banns, marriage documents, miscellaneous documents, citizenships. https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/440564 Regards, suanj
currently Frosolone is in Isernia province, Molise region. The province of Isernia was made in 1970, so recently. In the past the Molise region had just 1 province: Campobasso. So in the past also Frosolone was in Campobasso province. suanj
