Trying to find Grandma`s real name, Please help.

Postby Costanzo87 » 22 Oct 2014, 23:08

My wife and I were in Linguaglossa and we went to the church, And we got a birth record that says
SGROI Egidia fu Gregorio e fu Ardizzone Santa Born August 11 1877. When the priest read her
name from his book, He read Egidia Del Popolo I question the name and was told Del Popolo was the name given when the child was born to an unwed child.
I also Found on the internet Egidia or Jennie Raineri Born 1873 to Vito Del Popolo and Domenica Raiti. We are confused, I also have a copy of her Registering as a non citizen in 1942 where she states that she was born Nov. 21, 1875 in Linguaglossa, Catania, Italy
She sailed from Naples on the Re D`Italia And arrived April 4 1908. She came with 5 kids and listed the person back home as Vito Del Popolo. If the latter is true then the Priest in Linguaglossa gave us the wrong person. This could be possible or not.

You did not say anything about obtaining her civil birth record from the Anagrafe (census)/Stato Civile office(birth,marriage and death certificates) which are normally free. Perhaps if you send an e-mail to anagrafe@comune.linguaglossa.ct.it with a form letter in Italian which you will find in the http://www.circolocalabrese.org website (click genealogy for form letters) and send it to the e-mail address. Just request her birth record (Estratto di Nascita=long form for more information). When you receive her birth record then you will have the proof that will satisfy you. Please get back when you receive a response. Peter

The above marriage record that Marty :D found has the names of the parents you referenced above in the "internet" record you found.
Bride is listed as Egidia Del Popolo Sgroi as Marty stated.

Found on the internet Egidia or Jennie Raineri Born 1873 to Vito Del Popolo and Domenica Raiti.

So she's not the Egidia Sgroi born in 1877. She might be the Egidia Del Popolo born in 1873, or perhaps that child died and the same parents gave their next daughter, born in 1875, the same name. Did you search for other children of the same parents (Vita and Domenica) born after 1873?

The year of the death record is 1925, not 1915...
See this link to the beginning of that year of deaths showing the year at the top of the page written in numerals :-)

Thanks Tessa for the help.....
Val that is reason the priest said the name Del Popolo was a foundling name Vito Del Popolo was the foundling not Egidia Del Popolo
