Marsitto

Postby bhalle » 04 Nov 2014, 06:19

I am looking for information on a family with the last name Marsitto. I believe they might have ben from (still live in) Petrella. Joseph and Giuseppe immigrated to the United States in the early part on the 1900's. They are family on my wifes side, and I I am doing preliminary research for a possible trip. Any info is great. Thank you

By Petrella you mean....

Petrella Guidi - frazione di Sant'Agata Feltria, provincia di Rimini?
Petrella Liri - frazione di Cappadocia, provincia dell'Aquila?
Petrella Massana - frazione di Sestino, provincia di Arezzo?
Petrella Salto - comune, provincia di Rieti?
Petrella Tifernina - comune, provincia di Campobasso?

Also I can't find the name in any Italian source so the actual name may have been slightly different in Italy.
TIP: When asking for records from Italy, do NOT ask for an "estratto." ALWAYS ask for a "copia integrale." A photocopy of the original Act will contain more information

The last name, if it is different, will easily be found by searching through the registries in the towns.

Whats more important is knowing what you mean by Petrella

Hi there

Welcome to the forum.

Does this sound like it might be your wife's family: Giuseppe (Joseph) Marsitto, age 28, Labourer, from Petrella Tifernina, Campobasso, travelling with wife Nicolangela Delisio, destination Pitzburg. (December 1919).
http://www.libertyellisfoundation.org/p ... 5pZmVzdCI7

If it does sound like them there are currently records available for Petrella Tifernina at this site:
http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... Tifernina/

Just get back to us and confirm either way and we can help you look for their birth and possibly marriage records etc.

Angela :)

Just wanted to make a correction/addition to my previous post here: This Giuseppe Marsitto was not travelling with his wife. It just lists her as next of kin. Also I think that the arrival year was 1910 not 1920? He was going to visit his brotherinlaw (Di Lisco? - probably should have read Delisio).

Giuseppe Marzito

Postby AngelaGrace56 » 04 Nov 2014, 21:14

I think this may be Giuseppe's birth record. The spelling of the name must have got changed. I couldn't understand why I couldn't find Giuseppe's birth record earlier amongst the Petrella Tifernina birth records and that is why I questioned the arrival year and especially as there was an overstrike. I have found the following in Part II of the Campobasso nati records. Maybe someone else can translate as I need to go out shortly. Thank you in advance.

Possible Birth Record No 21 – Giuseppe Marzito:
http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... ewsIndex=0

Born 3 March 1891?
Side Note: Marries Angela Maria Di Lisio in Petrella Tifernina.

If that birth record is his, then it is what I suspected - the name is Marzitto, not Marsitto.
Married Angela Di Lisio.

If these are the right people, these names are likely to be correct. Immigration records for the US often misspell names (some dispute this, but this is just 2 more examples) which is why it is always important to double check them in the town of origin.

I'm having trouble reading it, because I just woke up, but I'm getting the impression Marzitto is not a real name - that it is a made up one assigned to him and that he may have been an orphan?

"I order the child handed over to Maria Nicola d'Amico, wife of Angelo Michele Valente." -- well this is a quick end to a genealogical line, but you can still search the Di Lisio line.

Thanks! Quick replies- yes to Giuseppe. My wife is not in the know as I am planning a trip. All I do know is that her grandfather was named Carl, and I believe his dad to be Joseph and his uncle to be Giuseppe that you mention. Campabasso has been mentioned by my wife as well. I am going to look further, and re-log back on when I can. Thank you again, this is a GREAT help!

Are you sure?

Joseph and Giuseppe are the same name, and there is only one record of someone coming over. Further more Joseph is not an Italian name.

Sounds more like the 2 people you are looking for are the same 1. Giuseppe Americanized into Joseph. An orphan would not have a brother.

Annantonia's surname differs from the Marriage Record so there is obviously an error in one of the records. This happens sometimes.
