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.

-- 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...
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
