Help finding birth record

Postby ginaruiz1998 » 17 Oct 2013, 18:58

Hello,

I am hoping that someone on here can give me a hand. I am looking for a birth record for my Great Aunt...her name is Anna DiSalvo and she was born to Gaetano Di Salvo and Francesca Manzella in Bagheria, Sicily. I have a ship manifest from 1902 that lists her age as 5...but I also found another one ( the year is harder to read but it says 189---) and that one also gives her age as 5. I have searched the records on familysearch from 1894-1897 and so far have not found it! If someone has time and feels like taking a look for me I would greatly appreciate it!

Here's a link to one of the manifests...she (Anna) is traveling with her mother here: http://ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup_wei ... exe%3FT%3D\\\\192.168.100.11\\IMAGES\\T715-0303\\T715-03030257.TIF%26S%3D.5&pID=102787120128&name=Anna%26nbsp%3BManzella&doa=Oct+17%2C+1902&port=Naples&line=0008

Grazie!

Gina

Whoops! The mother's mane should be Giuseppa, not Francesca! See...I can't even keep my ancestor's names straight! The last name is correct though!

Thank You,
Gina

I confused the shipmanifest says Giuseppa Manzella and daughter Anna Manzella but you said the father is Gaetano Di Salvo was she born out of wedlock and took the mothers name
Also the Bagheria records are missing years you almost have to write for the records for the years you are searching for

Good Morning, Marty! Thank you for responding! I don't believe that Anna was born out of wedlock...I found another manifest for them (their names are crossed out on them and I believe that means that did not cross) and they are listed as DiSalvo, Gaetano; Figlia, Anna and Moglie, Guiseppa....not so sure why that is...

Yeah..that's kinda what I thought, too about getting the info...I searched the scanned docs on familysearch (all 2200 of them) not once but TWICE and did notice they are missing a few years!

Thanks for your help, Marty!

Gina
