Hi, I am also looking to trace the Sabella family. We have a step- greatgrandfather named Giacomo (Jack) Sabella. My earliest records for him is 1908 in Bayou Goula, Louisiana. He lived the rest of his life in LA. All found records so far only state he was a native of Sicily and his appr. birth in 1872. I have not found his imigration record. Family stories say he had a brother in San Francisco, Ca. Any help with a lead would be most appreciated.

The giannola side (My grandfather) came from Cinisi, Sicily.
The were:Gaspere Giannola born 1870
his wife Marianna Finazzo born 1876
children born in cinisi : Fsca. Paola Giannola
Grazia Giannola
Michele Giannola Born 1903 (my grandfather)

All of the giannola's came to Ellis Island, Nov. 7, 1912 on the ship Berlin. My Great Grandfather Gaspere came Nov.12, 1912.

Hi Sazzlynn

you wrote:

What about his census records? Have you found those?

If so, what would the immigration date be?

Too many Louisiana manifests are not published on line, even with a paid subscription to Ancestry :( ... you could order film at the Family History Center...

But if you already know an immigration date, please fill in the details, I am sure someone from this forum will look it up for you...:lol:

p.s. if you happen to have any idea who the brother in CA is, please mention...

Hi,
Concerning Giacomo Sabella: all show him living in La and a native of Italy.
1910 census, age 42, immigrated 1905.
1920 census, age 48, immigrated 1904.
1930 census, age 58, immigrated 1903.

I love the age differences. I find this a lot with the women, who would not admit to being older than 30.

I have no name for the brother in California, but was told he owned Sabella's Resturant on Fisherman's Wharf, in San Francisco.

Luciano Sabella owned a fish stall on the wharf... Eventually his son, Antone opened A.Sabella's. Taken over by his son Lucian, burned down, reopened and owned by AntoneII.

Will see if I can find more.

Sazzlynn, your not intruding at all! Any connection is so very welcome.
My grandmother's side, the Sabella's came from Castellaneta, Italy and came to ellis Island the following time:

April 1, 1913- ship The Berlin

Valentino Sabella came On April 12, 1912 ( My greatgrandpa)34 years
April 1, 1913 came
Maria Stasi (my Greatgrandma)27 years
Achille Sabella 11 years
Giovanni Sabella 9 years
Rosa Sabella 6 years (My grandmother)
Alberto Sabella 3 years
Irma Sabella 9 months

Rosa Sabella married Michael Giannola in New York, somewhere around 1927. I hope we all can make some connections. I am at a loss for digging into Italy and Sicily. :)

The microfilm of the Lds is a wonderful resource, thru this you can trace all birth, marriage and death as far back as the dates allow. Microfilm must be ordered and viewed at a Lds library near you, and rental is inexpensive, less than four dollars. Records are in Italian, so an Italian dictionary or one of the several books on Italian genealogy would be helpful.
The only other way to research records is by sending to Italy for them.......this can be time consuming and there is no guarantee you will recieve them.........you must have the exact town of origin as well.
An excellent book on Italian Genealogy is by Trafford R. Cole, "Italian Genealogical Records", how to use Italian civil, ecclesiastial and other records in family history research.
To locate a library near you:

hope this helps,
