Cappato / Capato/ Capatto´s family

Postby ptimber » 26 Dec 2002, 16:15

go to www.paginebianche.it and insert one or more of the family names in the first line (you apparently do not know the correct surname so you will have to explore that) and the town of Loreo in the third line and then click cerca. If there are persons with one of the last names they may be related to you and you may wish to write them and ask them if they are related to you. You can write in Italian or very simple english since English is the second languiage in the schools. If you know the correct last name then please get back to me if you have difficulty. Peter

Cappato / Capato/ Capatto´s family

Postby ptimber » 26 Dec 2002, 16:25

The correct last name is CAPPATO but there are no Cappato in Loreo but many in the province of Rovifo in which Loreo is a part. You may have to write to the Ufficio di Stato Civile, Postale 45017, Comune di Loreo, Provincia Rovigo , Veneto Italia for documents if you have the correct name and at least the year of birth for your rleatives.

I too am looking for family in Italy, not to sure where to look seeings how my gg grandfather changed his last name when he came over. I didn't find out he had changed the last name till I spoke with another Apato family of Chicago, who's great or great great gandfather had come over on the same ship as mine. What I did find out from the other family is that the last name was Capato or Cappato, and they both changed it to Apato once in the US (the other Apato family has recently changed it to Lapato btw the other Apato family is origianlly from Brazill). I was not able to find my gg grandfather in manafests or anything just in the 1900 and 1910 United States Census. His name was Raffaelle (sp?) he came over in about 1880 and was born about 1857 in Italy, and I know his mother Antonia came over and lived with him in about 1885. Any help locating info on him and his family and living family would be of great help! Thanks in advance Liz

Sorry it took so long to reply I have written on sooo many sites I loose track. I do have all that Information. By word of mouth we were told by the other Apato family of Chicago that it was Capato, I do beleive I found my gggrandfather in a manafest but the year of arrival is a little off from what is recorded on the census. But the birth year is right, and he is listed as Raffaele Caputo (if u look close enough it could be a u or it could be an a, easy mistake) the ship name was the Caldera and he came over June 16, 1882. So there may very well be a little back up to the story.

It's common for immigration year on censuses to be off.

Is this your ggggranfather? Have you obtained his death record?

APATO, RALPH M/W Age:UNK - Cert# 6014881 -
died: 1917-05-02 COOK CHICAGO filed: 17-05-03

Other records

Birth records for all the children? Their baptismal records? Ralph's naturalization record? Antonia's death certificate?

Yes that is my great great grandfather. I'm not to sure how to obtain those records. I'm also not to sure how to obtain the birth records for the children, because I was told that untill my grandfather passes and I can get his birth certificate and death record that I am not intitled to my great grandfathers records let alone my great great grandfathers. I can't find a naturalization record for Raffaele anywhere nor for his wife Minnie (Vincenzina Santore), and I'm not sure if Antonia has a naturalization record or not.

I've requested many records from Cook County & got them.....I'm not even related to the people who I requested records for!

You may want to specify that it is a genealogical request & include your photo ID.

Recommend the county clerk's office, I hear that IRAD takes a very, long time (6 months or more).

Hope this helps.

I've had records back from Irad in two weeks time.....depends on the time of the year....many of the repositories are staffed by college students.


**NOTE: Our regional depositories are staffed by graduate student interns. Because of class scheduling conflicts, hours may vary somewhat from the above schedule. Researchers are urged to call before planning a visit to a depository.

If requesting vital records..make sure to ask for a genealogical copy, it will be stamped as such and cost less than a certified copy.

Wow!

Only tried IRAD once, because it took them 8 months for a marriage record. Oh, well....just glad I got it.

Wonder if it's because your out of state.....perhaps they answer the Illinois residents first??? I would of sent a follow up letter, which I think they say 6 to 8 weeks.....sounds like somebody lost yours in the shuffle!!!!

Because I am a resident, I can also email them.....they have usually replied within 1 - 3 days......saves time to be sure!!

Could be, Lisa.
I gave up on IRAD & sent request to the county clerk & got it in abt 4 weeks. Was really surprised 6 months later when the other one came.
