Helping me find the birthplace of two of my Gr Grandfathers

Postby susansciolino » 04 Mar 2015, 02:55

Hello!! I am trying to find the birthplace for my two Great Grandfathers below:

Stefano Di Marco- born June 1862, Italy. I think came to the US from Naples on the ship Bolivia on March 28, 1892. But it only states "S DiMarco" and I'm not that confident. I am wondering where in Italy he was born? And possibly his parent's names?

Felix Venterina (Venturina)-born November 17,1888 in Italy. His United States of America Draft Papers state "Naples", but I was wondering if that's true & where exactly? I think his mother was named "Philomena Adera" 1854-1922-she died in Brooklyn, NY; but I don't know anything about his father. ?

Any help is greatly appreciated :) THANK YOU
Susan

YES! That is him! Thank you so much, because the Draft Registration I found only stated "Naples" and I wanted to narrow it down. That is actually the same town that his wife's parent's were married in...so it definitely makes sense!!

I wonder, if knowing that his Mother's name is "Philomena Adera" if I could find out his Father's name through this forum?

And then onto my other Great Grandfather- Stefano Di Marco....his info is above. I can't seem to find much of anything about him or his parents?

But....THANK YOU SO MUCH :) You've been a great help!

Yes! That is my Great Grandfather & Grandmother! I was able (thanks to this forum find Celesta's birthplace and immigration information), but Stefano's records just state "Italy" and never where in Italy? Or anything about his parents? Or I just can't seem to find anything with that information?
Anything on Stefano would be appreciated :)

I'm not sure? Maybe?? That's one reason I would like to find out more about Stefano...we can't find out much about him, his family, birthplace etc...However when he came to America who managed to have 13 children with Celesta (one of which was my Grandfather). So....he has been our mystery man! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!! Susan :)

Yes, that is Felix's Mother :) Thank you so much. Apparently she came over to live with Felix after his Father passed away. Is there anyway that you might know how I can find out the father's name?
Very grateful for this info!!! Plus still hoping to hear anything about my other GR Grandfather, Stefano :) Susan

I found a Birth record of a daughter (Stefano & Celeste):

Crestina De Marco

New York, Births and Christenings

Name: Crestina De Marco
Gender: Female
Birth Date: 23 Oct 1893
Birthplace: Brooklyn, Kings, New York
Father's Name: Stefano De Marco
Mother's Name: Celestra Majorano


Indexing Project (Batch) Number: C00130-6 , System Origin: New_York-ODM , GS Film number: 1324416 the Celeste maiden name is Majorano, and I believe is the right spelling no Naporano(?).. I cannot find the marriage, because by Stefano parent's names I can understand the Birth area... best,

Yes, that is their oldest daughter, Christina. I have never been able to find a marriage record for Stefano & Celesta; but thanks to this forum I've been fortunate to find out more about Celesta's family. It's Stefano (my Gr Grandfather) that I cannot locate much of his family information (birthplace in Italy, mother & father's names, etc...). So I'll keep hoping! Thank you very much:) Susan

Is there anyway I can find out if Stefano Di Marco, my Gr Grandfather, was born in Corbara, Italy around 1862?
