Find out last name

Postby AnnmarieClark » 07 Nov 2016, 20:05

Hello!

All I know is that my great, great grandmother was born in Italy on 11 January 1863 and that her name was Philamena. How can I look up all the Philmenas born on that day? Or on that day but 1864?

Thanks.

You have to know the name of the town where she was born. Even then looking up Filomena without a surname won't be easy as most indexes are by surname.
Her ship manifest should give her birth surname.

Thanks. However, all I know is that her name was Philamena, her birth-date and that she was born in Italy. She was supposedly adopted and became an "Appleton" but I don't believe that her's true birth name. I see her listed on the 1881 US Census but otherwise nothing. Was hoping that since I knew her first name and date of birth there was a database that could fill in the rest.
