Anna Perrella Siblings; Naples

Postby gliesian66 » 18 Jan 2015, 22:07

Anna (nee Perrella) Esposito lost 8 siblings to TB.

Anna Perrella
My 2nd great grandmother
Birth 1867 in Naples, Italy
Death 4 Feb 1946 in Brooklyn, NY

Were there any health records in Italy that I can search on TB deaths to help me find the names of her siblings?

Thanks,
Robert

If Anna's siblings were born before her, you should find their birth records in the Naples Civil Registration 1809-1865 on FamilySearch.org: https://familysearch.org/search/collection/1937990 - I had a quick look and didn't find anyone with a father named Federico Perrella. So your next step would be to either look for a source for post-1865 birth records in Naples (then searching for individuals whose father's name was Federico Perrella) - or question how sure you are that Anna was born in Naples? You don't seem to have a source for it so is it possible that's incorrect? One of my ancestors was said to be from Naples too - but it turns out she just boarded the boat from Naples, she was actually born and lived in Monteroduni. You can't always trust family stories.

I would look for Anna's immigration/naturalization papers. Those should tell you where exactly in Italy she was born. Then you can look for her/her siblings birth records in that location.
