Puleri/Borzella

Postby rayg1973 » 12 Sep 2005, 21:30

I am in the process of finding out more information about my grandfathers parent who were born, raised in Sicily. Their names were Salvatore Puleri and Carmella Borzella. They came to America in 1913(Salvatore) and 1917 (Carmella). I have some info about them (Passenger Record, Manifest) and some info from America, but would like to find out more info about them in Italy. Can someone please help. Thank you in advance.

Hi there,

Was a name of a town listed on the Ship's Manifest? If so, what is the name of the town?

Also you can go to the Family History Center website at
http://www/familysearch.org


and do a Place search for the town to see if there are microfilm records.

I hope this helps.

Hi There,

The Family History Center has microfilm for the town. It costs about $3.50 a roll depending on your location.

Here are the film numbers from the Family History Center.
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... =1&last=50

Here is Salvatore's manifest. It was a 2 page mainfest and it stated he was going to go see his brother, Giuseppe. Good clue when search Birth Acts.

Did you also know that Salvatore came in 1909?

http://www.ellisisland.org/search/shipM ... 0738%2ETIF

On Carmela's manifest, she is bringing 2 of her children.
http://www.ellisisland.org/search/shipM ... 0298%2ETIF

I don't know for sure if this is your Salvatore (it depends on where he settled in the USA to be certain), but this is the NYC Naturalization Record Information.

Name: Salvatore Puleri
Address: 233 E. 107 St.
Date: 04 Jun 1923
Volume #: 611
Page #: 43


I hope this helps,
Trish

I have been using the www/familysearch.org website which is a big help. The Salvatore you mentioned is not my Great Grandfather. Though Carmella is the apporpriate one. She brought with her my grandfather and his brother. Any websites that might help me find more information about their life in Sicily, as well as a death date for Carmella? Thanks again. This is all great info.

Exactly what information are you seeking? Trish provided you with an excellent source in which to trace the family history.......Italy does not have online records as does the Usa....you could write to the town of origin for birth, marriage and death acts..but you already have that available to you here....... :?

Hi Again,

As you can see above, I gave you information on your family. There are the ship's mainfests that you mentioned. They are proof as to who your ancestors are. From those manifests you can see childrens' names as well as that Salvatore was going to see his brother. These are all clues to finding your ancestors.

I also gave you information on the film numbers for the town so that you can do your own research and start looking up Birth, Marriage, and Death Acts of your ancestors.

The film can be order through your local Family History Center for $3.50 a roll. And since you profile states you live in NY, there are several FHC near you. Also, since you are in NY, you have access to finding so much more information on your family than we do here on the internet. You have to start searching for clues and information yourself.

One other comment. Do you have Salvatore's Death Date? If you do, order his Death Certificate or go to the Archives yourself and look it up. Once you get it and find the Cemetery he is buried at, call the Cemetery and ask for the death date of his wife.

Here is also a clue that "could be" your Carmela's death date.

Name - Age - Death Date - Certificate Number - County
Pulire Carmela - 58 y - Mar 17 1931 - 2830 - Bronx

If you want to write to people with the same surname as yours that are in the town of Castrofilippo, here is the link to find their addresses.

Infobel Directory
http://www.infobel.com/italy/wp/search/default.asp

This is Paginebianche Directory
http://www.paginebianche.it/index.html

If you want to write to the town itself, here is their website.
http://www.mediatel.it/comune.castrofilippo/home1.html

Here is link to help you write your letter in Italian for documents, that's if you don't want to use the microfilm from the FHC.
http://www.circolocalabrese.org/resourc ... civile.asp

Also, I tried looking for your family in the census, I am having a tough time finding them. So right now, the people of this forum hands are tied. Its up to you to start looking for information. We are only here to help, guide you, give you advice, and clues to help you find your ancestors.

I do wish you luck with your search.
Trish

Wow this site is great. I just joined. I have been researching my famiy: Abbamonte from Salvitelle for over 5 years. It has taken me that long to verify all information.
I am now ready to go the next step and try to secure documents. I have ALL birth, marriage and death dates.
I am going to start with some of the information Trish has given.

This is a full time job but oh so rewarding.
Thank you so much
