Galioto "Galiotto" family surname

Postby ty79978 » 04 Aug 2013, 04:29

Hello,

To anyone who could help in anyway in uncovering some parents names for me and possibly more siblings if that are possible. Greatly Appreciated.


My grandmother's maiden name is Galioto. My grandmother was born in NY.

My grandmother is the daughter of Antonio "Antonino" "Anthony" Galioto & Orsolina "Orsola" "Lena" Palazzolo.

My grandmother's parents were married in New York city in 1924. On October 23rd to be exact.

My grandmother's father was born on October 11th, 1891.
According to Antonino's WWII draft, he was born in Palermo, Italy. I'm not sure what specific city in Palermo, I'd say Sicily is a best bet considering my grandmother can speak Sicilian and she was told that her grandfather's family was from there.

According to my the Census: 1930 & 1940. Antonio immigrated from Italy to the United States in 1907. I haven't been able to locate an immigration record.

According to my great grandparents marriage certificate (Antonio Galioto and Orsola Palazzolo) October 23rd, 1924. I have a certified copy of the certificate from the New York Municipal Archives.

The marriage certificate list the parents of Antonio.

Antonio's father's name was Giacinto Galioto.
Antonio's mother's name was Antonina Piazza.

Now, I know Antonio has a brother. It is known that he only has one brother.

But, me personally, I truly feel that my 2x great grandparents (Giacinto Galioto & Antonina Piazza) gave birth to more children.

It is known that they gave birth to two boys, but two children in an Italian family in Italy, not to say that it's impossible for her to have more, just judging from the sizes of my other families who are from Italy, two known children makes it seems like there were as a possibility. Perhaps more who didn't leave Italy?

It is known that my great grandfather Antonio Galioto had a brother Bernard.

Bernard "Bernardo" "Binardo" Galioto was born on July 14th, 1894.
Bernardo died on December 23rd, 1965.

Bernardo died in U.S Consulate.
Bernardo used to live in the United States. New York to be exact.
Bernardo married (according to a marriage certificate) her name was Leonarda "Currin" "Curreri"... The family called her Nettie. I never knew her name to be Leonarda. I've never seen her name to be written this way. Her name is seen as Nettie in all census records and even on her headstone.
Leonarda "Nettie" is the daughter of Calogero Curreri and Calogera Chiarello. She was born in Italy according to her marriage certificate. Nettie is listed as being born in the United States in all census record.
Nettie was born in 1900 and died in June of 1941. She's buried in the Bronx, I have her headstone picture.

According to Bernardo's marriage certificate to Nettie, his parents are Giacinto Galioto & Antonina Piazza.

Bernardo re-married after his 1st wife Nettie's death.
I'm not sure when he re-married, I assume back in Italy.
Bernardo married Orsola Bue.
Orsola was born on May 23, 1900 and died on March 15th, 1978.

According to Bernardo's death Report:
Bernardo and Orsola are buried in the cemetery "S Orsola"

Bernardo's immigration record states that he came to the United States on August 15th, 1913. He list his father as Giacinto Galioto in the record.

According to Bernard's WWII draft, he was born in La Carda Frida, Italy.
Other places of birth could include Sicily, Palermo, Italy.

Bernard did have children. Known children with his first wife, Nettie.
All 3 children (2 sons and 1 daughter were born and died in Bronx, NY.)

No known children if any with his 2nd wife Orsola.

The last name of "Galioto" can also be seen spelled with "Galiotto".

Thanks to anyone who can help!
I'd love to share any uncovered information with my elderly grandmother.

Much Appreciated!

Tyler.

Laura,

Thank you so much for your kind and quick reply.
I truly thank you.

I can't wait to share this information with my grandmother.
My grandmother's name is Antonina.

Now we had always thought that my grandmother's parents (Antonio and Orsolina) just changed the name of her father and that's where Antonina comes from.

Antonio's name is seen Written as Antonino so we had originally thought to get Antonina, they dropped the o and added an a.

Now it seems that my grandmother was indeed named after her grandmother.


Thank you for the immigration records as well,
I always knew the year from one of Ancestry's censuses, but I was never able to find an actual manifest of people traveling.

Thanks again!

Laura,

Do you have any suggestions on how I should go about finding Salvatore?

I saw the Ellis island record and it clearly says Staying with "His Cousin Salvatore Montagnino" but then there's a little bit of writing after that and to me it is illegible. Can you make out any of the letters? Perhaps it's a residence. I'm assuming Salvatore lived in Manhattan, NY or Queens, NY.

If I can get an exact residence, perhaps I can try to find him in the Census anywhere from 1910 to 1940.
I could also try a World War 1 and 2 draft.

Thanks for you're help.

Most likely the Pietro who was born on 1886 died soon after his birth because there's another Pietro born to the same couple a few years later:

Birth act 328 - Year 1889

Galioto Pietro was born in Lercara Friddi on 6 july 1889 at 2 a.m., son of Giacinto Galioto age 40 farmer and of his wife Antonina Piazza farmer

Tyler, I don't know if these children survived, ifant mortality rate was very high at those times... There is need to check the death records to verify it....

Laura,

Thank you for finding possible siblings.

I always had a big feeling that there were more children. It is only known that my great grandfather Antonino came to the United States in 1909 and his brother Bernardo came in 1913.

Is this database searchable on Family Search.org or is it just images.
Because I'm not the best at translating Italian. I never took an Italian class or anything and I only know very few basic words.

Is there any way to locate a birth certificate for Giacinto and Antonina Piazza?

Or Perhaps a Marriage Certificate between the two?

Unfortunately, before these records, I didn't know much about them.
I'm not sure when they died, or how old they were at their deaths?

I assume that they both died between 1914 and 1930.
Judging that Giacinto's name was on Bernardo's immigration record.

I wish I could search in an index or section. But I've tried searching with no results.

As for images, I have terrible vision so I can't decode anything, I'm not even sure what I'm looking for exactly.
I don't know much Italian only a few basic words.


Any additional help or suggestions would be great!
Thanks!

Tyler,

these records are not easy to research because they are not indexed, they need to be checked "manually" page by page, using the year or ten years index.

However, this is (I think) the first child born to Giacinto and Antonina (whose lastname seems to have been Dipiazza later shortened in Piazza)

Birth act number 524 - Year 1874

Galleoto Pietro Giacinto was born in Lercara Friddi on 27 november 1874 at 5 a.m., son of Giacinto Galleoto age 25 farmer and of his wife Antonina Dipiazza age 16 farmer

Laura,

I realize the records are not easy to research. I've been on Familysearch.org before, and I was never able to find them.
Mostly Partly due to having terrible vision so reading these documents is extremely hard to do.

But to be honest..

The name change as you go further back in time from "Piazza" to "Dipiazza" that doesn't seem to be a mistake.

And as far as children go,
I'm not sure how many there would've been in total. I just had a feeling there was more than two and it turns out I was right?

Is there anyway that you could help figure out what happened to these children?

I assume they didn't all die in infancy. Indeed it is possible..
But, what about those who grew up and didn't want to leave Italy?

I know my great grandfather Antonino and great uncle Bernardo did,
but I think they were the only ones..
I think the other siblings if they didn't die in Infancy, they lived and created their own families in some town in Italy, assuming the same one Lacarra Friddi..

Is there away to find out if this is indeed possible?

Laura,

I attempted to calculate the birth year for Giacinto Galioto.
But due to the various ages of him that were recorded during the time of birth of the children.
I've calculated that he was born between 1841 and 1849.

As for Antonina DiPiazza - Piazza.
There is only one child's birth that seems to list her age.
And that is for their first child Pietro Giacinto "Galleoto" "Galioto"
It says that she was 16..
That would make her born about 1858.
I've assumed she was born in Lercara Friddi as well.

Now being that Pietro "Galeotto" "Galioto" is believed to have been their first child as even myself, I don't think that she gave birth to any children before the age of 16.

I say they would've gotten married in 1874 or sometime between 1870 and 1884.

Is it possible that you can find a marriage certificate for Giacinto Galioto and Antonina DiPiazza? (Assuming that she got married with the "Di" attached to Piazza).

Is it also possible that you could find a birth certificate for a Giacinto Galioto and an Antonina DiPiazza?

I look forward to your response,

Thanks for all your help!

Greatly appreciated!
Tyler.
