Gaetano Mazzola

Postby SvenMS » 16 Feb 2014, 12:02

I'm hoping that someone can help me find when Gaetano "Gus" Mazzola died and who is parents could be. Gaetano married Giuseppa "Josephine" Pizzitola in Italy. They lived in Belmonte Mezzagno, Palermo. I'm judging that he died between 1896 and 1903 in Belmonte based on the birth of his last known child and when the family immigrated to the United States without him.

Welcome to the forum. Even though there are supposed to be online death records for the town through 1902, the only death records there (from 1895 to 1902) are for years 1895 and 1896 and Gaetano's death record is not among them. At the website http://www.familysearch.org

Hi,
I have all the films for Belmonte Mezzagno at my Local Family History Center.
My grandfather was born in Belmonte Mezzagno.

Is that all the information you have? Do you know when he was born or an approx birth date?
When they married? Let me know what you do know.

Keep in mind some of the records are missing for some years, but I am happy to look it up for you.

I have Mazzola in my tree as well

Take Care,
Joann

That is all the information I know. He would have married Josephine sometime before 1884 which was the birth of the first known child. Josephine was born on Feb. 28, 1863 in Italy.

Hi,
Do you have a birth date for Gaetano, about 1864?
I will go on Tuesday, unless we get more snow.

I will keep you posted.

Take Care,
Joann

I don't know his birth year... Also, Gaetano could also be listed under Gus, Guy, or Tannie.

There are no Matrimony Acts for this couple in the town between 1881 and 1885.

Hi,
Do you know if Gaetano Mazzola and Giuseppa Pizzitola were born in Belmonte Mezzagno?
They would have been married in the town Giuseppa Pizzitola was born?

Thanks,
Joann

Sorry, I do not know. Giuseppa's death certificate only lists Italy. Her immigration manifest listed her last residence as Belmonte in 1902. She might have been born in Santa Cristina Gela as her parents lived there. If you can find Gaetano's birth, that would be great as well.

This is a birth record for a second Vincenzo born to Gaetano and Giuseppa on June 22, 1884. He was age 33 and she was age 24. So the first Vincenzo would have died for this child to be given the same first name. It appears though that the 1883 death records are missing.
