Augusto Freddi / Augusto Freddi

Postby jeremydosborn » 25 Jun 2014, 07:53

Hi there,

Trying to find birth and or baptism record for Augusto Freddi who also goes by August Freddo. He is born march 13 1889 in Napoli and emigrated to NY 1892 with sisters Rosa and Anna and someone (older sister?) Named Fortunate Freddi or Freddo. Trying to find parents names and whether they emigrated to US as well.Any help deeply appreciated.

Jeremy

This is the manifest: http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0083

Augusto was travelling with his mother, Francesca Palma aged 47 and 3 sisters, Fortunata (17yo a dressmaker), Anna (8yo) and Rosa (6yo). They were from Sorrento, near Naples.

Interesting, and thanks for your response!

I had found the ship manifest, but since Francesca Palma's last name was different than that of her children I had assumed that they weren't traveling together, or that they weren't related. Is there some reason why August's Mother would have a different last name than him? Also, since he was three years old that would mean he was born when she was 40?

Palma is Francesca's maiden name. In Italy, women keep their maiden name after married. (This is to simplify the genealogy research...)

Thank-you both very much. This is very helpful! I have emailed the Commune di Sorrento.

One final question. Do you know if there are indexes online for Sorrento? I can't seem to find anything for Sorrento on familysearch or ancestry.com

Best regards,

Jeremy
