Maria Domenica Cestari/Cestaro and Gerardo Guadagno

Postby ophelan » 26 Mar 2015, 00:19

Hello, I'm trying to locate birth records for my great grandparents, but not having too much luck. Here's what I know so far.

Maria Domenica Cestari/Cestaro, born 11-Nov-1879 in Naples, immigrated to the US 03-Feb-1904. Parents Michele and Arcangela Cestaro.

Gerardo Guadagno, born 30-Apr-1882 in Atella, immigrated to the US 17-May-1902. Parents Luco and Elisabetta Guadagno.

After immigrating, they largely resided in Trenton, Mercer County, New Jersey, married on an unknown date, naturalized in 1912 according to the 1920 census, and had several children: Michael, Maurice, Jean, Lena, Elizabeth, Luco, Gloria, and Jerry.

Any suggestions on where to dig further, or at this point do I need to reach out to the communes? Thanks!

Naples civil records are available on microfilm from 1809-1865 so although they were born after 1865, you may be able to find their parents marriages/births in there (maybe even the births of some of their siblings):

https://familysearch.org/search/catalog ... %20Library

While that does mention online records, the city of Naples doesn't seem to be included so you would still need to order the microfilm.
