Anna lena caputo need help going back

Postby angelasgarlata » 21 Oct 2015, 05:22

I am a granddaughter of Anna Lena Caputo, who's parents were John and Anna Caputo. Unfortunately I have been unable to locate any information prior to her parents. It also seems that John is a sjortened name, but I am unsure what his birth name is. Both Anna and John were from Italy. I would love help locating more info, especially pictures.

Welcome!

We will need some additional information...
Place and date of birth of your grandmother, Anna Lena Caputo
Did her parents immigrate to US? If yes, where did they settle?
Name of Anna Lena's husband and children?
And any other details you can provide.
We try to work backwards in time from US records if we can.

FYI...John is the American version of Giovanni... :)

Could this be the family of John Caputo residing in New Jersey in 1910???
Wife, Anna
Children: Christina, Anna (born about 1899-1900), James, Michael

AND.. residing New York in 1900

Daughter Anna is 3 months of age, born February 1900
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... cc=1325221

POSSIBLE birth of your GREAT grandmother???

Anna Maria Caputo born in New York City 17 February 1900
Father: Giovanni Caputo
Mother: Anna Beneota (Benesante on another birth act)

My grandmother Anna Lena Caputo was born in NY, her parents did immigrate from Italy to New York. My grandmother was born in March, I believe the year was 1921.

My grandmother's husband's name was George Warner. They had four son's...Steve, Anthony, Thomas, and Junior (I am not sure if that was his actual name). They were born in Vermont. I don't have much information on that side either.

Ann DeCrescenzo was my grandmother's mother's maiden name as far as I know.

I did check the birth record for my grandmother...March 12 or 13th, 1926.

Thanks for the additional information. :-)

So Giovanni/John Caputo was married to Ann DeCrescenzo?
They immigrated to US and lived in New York?
Their child was Anna Lena Caputo who married with George Warner...

We'll see what we can find...

Wow! Thank you both soooo much! This is information I would have never located on my own! You will never know how much I appreciate all the work you are doing and have done so far to help me get to know my ancestors! You are truly wonderful people!

Is there a way to locate pictures of any of the people found?

Thank you so much!!
