Parents of Giovanni Guercio

Postby rp76226 » 18 Sep 2013, 04:50

Giovanni Guercio was born December 15, 1872 in Laurino, Salerno, Italy. He emigrated to the US in 1892 per NYC Census records but I cannot find that immigration record. On April 20, 1903 he arrived again at Castle Garden (misspelled last name as Guercia)from Laurino with his wife, Lucia Carolina Moreno who was arriving in the US for the first time at age 18. She was born in Laurino on August 9, 1885. Yet, I cannot find Giovanni Guercio's birth record, nor his 1892 immigration record so that hopefully I can find who his parents were from those records. I can't find his wife's parents either. Any help given to find their parents would be appreciated.

Hello Ron! :-)

Looking at the arrival of Giovanni and Lucia in 1903, I noticed that they are listed as US Citizens.

Found this passport application from the US Consulate in Naples, for Giovanni from April 1903...
Lists his first arrival in US in 1892 on the "Brettagna" (possibly Britania?) on 10 March 1892, and another on 9 January 1903 on "Sicilia" TO Naples.

He also indicates that he was naturalized 29 March 1901 in Westchester County - white Plains. You may be able to get more information from these naturalization records :-)

He plans to stay in Naples another 4 days and return to US. The record is dated 2 April 1903... so they sailed in April...

I had the passport application. No parental info there. I can't find the Naturalization document. I have the 1903 arrival info where we learn of his wife. Can't find the 1892 arrival, even when expanded to include other years. I have 3 census records, but nothing new on them regarding his parents.
