James V Surace 1899

Postby crystalblue » 26 Oct 2013, 01:49

I am having trouble locating a birth certificate for my ggrandfather, James V Surace. He was born 28/29 Jan 1899 in NY. My family immigrated to Brooklyn and remained there until my mother left as a teenager. I submitted a request with the DOH for a birth certificate with the DOB and parents' names for Brooklyn, but no information was found. According to italiangen.org, there was nobody by that name born in NYC. I have even checked under Vincenzo (his possible real birth name) and the last name spelled Suraci (the spelling before arriving in the US). His parents' names are Domenico Surace and Angelina Casciano, and his wife's name was Josephine Novello. If you have any additional information as to where in NY he was born or under what name, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks! Crystal

It is possible that it is the correct family in the census, although the birth months are wrong for the parents. I have come across James' WWI draft card and SSDI info, both confirming DOB of Jan 1899. But thank you for the effort, hopefully it can get me a little closer!

JAN 29 and Feb 1 are pretty darn close... :-)
