Vrola Family

Postby Donna Rafanello » 11 Nov 2014, 01:38

I am looking for the parents of Emelia (Amelia) Vrola and her Brother Fredrick Vrola. They also had a step sister but do not know her name ( was told she married a policeman from Naples). They are from Sessa Aurunca, Italy. Both went to United States in 1900's. Emelia married Pasquale Rafaniello.

According to Pasquale Rafaniello's World War II Registration Card, he was also born in Sessa Aurunca.
Could he and Amalia have been married In Italy?
I am not yet finding a marriage index record for them in NY.

Here is Pasquale's WWII card (about 1942)

AND Amalia/Emilia's Naturalization Index Card (same address as Pasquale's WWII card)
On the card is a PETITION Number at the bottom which you can use to request records from NARA. The packet should include her Certificate of Arrival, her Declaration of Intent, and her Petition. These could have the names of her parents as well.

Link to NARA order site.
You will need to register, then Order reproductions.
Fill in as much information as you can regarding her address, birthdate, etc.
Fee is about $10.00, with fairly quick delivery time.
