Just starting can anyone help?

Postby travele799 » 09 Feb 2006, 06:28

Hello I have just recently found out that Italian citizenship is a possibilty to me. As I am now living in Japan it is very hard to get any information and truth be told I do not know where to even start looking...
What I really need to find out is the naturalization information on my great grandfather (as well as where and when he died!).

This is all the information I have any help would be greatly appreciated or any way for me to access the 1910 census or where I can get any additional would also be greatly appreciated ...

His name is Guiseppe Campochiaro he was born on dec 11, 1885. He came over on the Duilio leaveing from napoli and arriving at ellis island on Sept 18, 1924... this is the only shiip crossing I have been able to find though I know he came over much earlier!

I think he was bron in Riesi, Sicily....

Please help me out!!

Thank you,
Mark

I don't know of any way to see the naturalization online. I'm sure there are people at this site who can give you suggestions. I found the record of his death at the lds family search site.

Is this him by any chance?



First Name: Giuseppe
Last Name: Campochiaro
Ethnicity: Italian, Ital South
Last Place of Residence: Boston, Mass
Date of Arrival: Sep 18, 1924
Age at Arrival: 39y Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ship of Travel: Duilio
Port of Departure: Napoli
Manifest Line Number: 0027


It says he previously travelled to the US from about 1912.

Here is a 1910 census of a Giuseppe...not Guiseppe living in Boston in 1910, with his son who is almost 8 and his wife. Might not be the same person although you never know if it will help.

1910 United States Federal Census Recordinfo

I'll post the link anyway and you let us know, ok.

Nuccia,
The first one you posted on the Duilio is him for sure... his first son was born on sept 10, 1909... so the second one is most likely not him.
How could I find out about the journey he made in 1912?

Thanks for the help
