Palazzolo Family Relatives in Italy:

Postby ty79978 » 04 Aug 2013, 03:41

Hello,

I have some Palazzolo family relatives who were born in Italy and came over to the United States and died in New York in the 1940s. I'm hoping someone can help recommend some sites for me to search through and perhaps provide more information about the parents and perhaps names of aunts and uncles.

I will supply all that I do know about these people and I hope to get a response soon.
Thanks to whomever can help in any way.


My 3x great grandfather's name was Girolamo Palazzolo. He came to the United States on July 7th, 1920. Girolamo came with his 2 eldest daughters Maria Palazzolo and Josephine "Giuseppa" Palazzolo. They came on the ship Duca D Aosta.
Maria was in 1900 (according to grave headstone) and died in 1954 in NY (If anyone could find a birth certificate that would be great)
Josephine was born in 1903.

Girolamo's both location according to the immigration record was Cinsi, Sicily, Italy.

Girolamo's wife. My 3x great grandmothers name was Lucrezia Giacona.
Lucrezia came to the United States on September 16th, 1921.

Lucrezia came with the rest of her and Girolamo's children:

Orsolina "Orsola" "Lena" Palazzolo who was born in 1906.
Lucy "Lucrecia" "Lucrezia" Palazzolo who was born in 1909 (According to headstone)
Natale Palazzolo who was born in 1912 and
Mario Palazzolo who was born in 1917.

According to the immigration record: Lucrezia Giacona was born in Cinsi, Palermo, Italy.

According to the Census: Lucrezia and Girolamo were married in the year 1900.

Now, I have been to the New York State Municipal Archives.
I have a certified copy of Girolamo and Lucrezia's death certificate. It list their parents names. But that's just all that I know about them. I've search sites, but I can't seem to find anything about them, hopefully someone can help me with this.

According to Girolamo's death certificate: He was born on December 5th, 1875 and died on March, 23, 1942. He died in Queens, NY

Girolamo's parents were: Natale Palazzolo & Maria Baldalamente.
Not sure if this will help so much but, It is known that Girolamo had a brother Vito Palazzolo and a brother Natale Palazzolo.

According to Lucrezia's death certificate, Lucrezia Palazzolo (Giacona) was born on January 1st, 1878 and died on March 27th, 1946. Lucrezia died in Queens, NY.

Lucrezia's parents were: Mario Giacona. "The surname of Giacona is spelled "Giacone" "Graccone" on the death certificate.
Lucrezia's mother was Giuseppa Badalamonte.

It is believed that the mother and Lucrezia and the mother of Girolamo are cousins.

It is known that Lucrezia had a brother Domenico "Dominic" "Domenick" "Domenic" Giacona.
Domenico was born on May 9th, 1882 and died on June 11th, 1964.

Domenica Giacona married a woman named Maria "Mary" Her maiden name is unknown.
Marriage most likely took place in Italy.

According to Domenico's WW1 & WW2 draft, Domenico was born in Palermo, Italy.

Not sure exactly what city in Palermo Domenico was born, Sicily would be best guess.

I hope someone respnods to this soon, hoping to add to my family tree and show results to my elderly grandmother.

Thanks!

Marty - Thank you for your help.

I got the marriage year from a United States census. It listed their age at first marriage.
Using their birth year and the age, both calculated to be married in 1900.

I know their first born child that I know of was born in 1900 - Maria Palazzolo.

But seeing as you told me that they were married in Italy in 1889, is it possible that they had more children between 1890 and 1900.

First known daughter was Maria Palazzolo was born in 1900 died in 1954 She was buried on August 2nd 1954. She died in Queens, NY. My guess is that she died on July 29th or July 30th, 1954.

Is the database searchable by names and years?
Or is it just images? Because I can't read a lot of Italian.

I can make up some basic words and names, but nothing much about locations and times and etc.

Thanks for your help.

There are indexes in births, publication marriage, act of marriage and death (that's how the records are laid out in every year) after the year you are searching by surname firstname and index number
Church records indexes are at the front of the years listed by first name first then surname and the page number

Are you by chance able to find a birth certificate for
"Mario Giacona" and "Maria Giuseppa Galati" ?

As well as Natale Palazzolo (father of Girolamo) and Maria Badalamente?

I'm cannot read these documents due to my terrible vision. I've passed them on to a cousin who speaks Italian and has better eye sight then I do.

I'm hoping you have any other possible images that are of my Palazzolo relatives!


Thanks!
Tyler.

Thank You Marty for all your help.

Perhaps if you wouldn't mind helping me solve this next little piece of the puzzle.

Mario Giacona. He supposedly has a brother "Giuseppe" that's the family story, that his brother's name was Giuseppe.

But, Giuseppe had a son Pietro Giacona who was born about 1879 in Palermo Italy.
I assume in Cinsi.

Pietro Giacona married Serafina Palazzolo in Italy.

Pietro Giacona came to New York in 1909. Here is the immigration record on Ancestry.com

http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse. ... plz0q3dpid


Pietro also came to New York in 1920 again a second time.
Here is the immigration record on Ancestry.

http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse. ... plz0q3dpid


I assume that Pietro went back to Italy between 1909 and 1920 for one of his parents death (Domenico Giacona or Lucrezia Zirillo).

I'm hoping you will find something because all I was able to find are those two records on Ancestry.

Thanks for all your help.

Wow!

Thanks Marty.

Now I'm curious..All these other "Palazzolo" relatives. Born with the surnname of Palazzolo

I mean, I've encountered cases where cousins married cousins.
So I'm assuming that all these Palazzolo's are indeed cousins of one another somehow or possibly even siblings?

Is there a way to confirm this?

-- Now, I'm curious..


Maria Galati.. is this the same Maria Galati who mentioned above earlier in this thread who was married to Mario Giacona?


Well, Pietro Giacona's immigration from Italy to the United States states that he was going to stay with this cousin "Domenico Giacona" (Domenico Giacona son of Mario Giacona and Maria Giuseppe Galati..

That's where my relatives and I have assumed that Mario Giacona had a brother.. We weren't sure of his name, we thought it was Giuseppe. I guess not.

So, that means that the father of Pietro was Salvatore Giacona.
Salvatore Giacona being a brother of Mario Giacona and Giovanni Giacona?


Does that about summarize it correctly?

I'm just confused now about Maria Galati.

Did Mario die and she re-married to Salvatore Giacona?
Or is it a completely different person...

Thanks for helping,
Tyler.

There are a lot of Maria Galati in the indexes its a popular name in Cinisi You would have to go through the records to find out whose related to who Its like the name Palazzolo in the indexes also very popular in Cinisi
Salvatore Giacona you will have to go back through the records to get his parents info
