D'Agostino Relatives

Postby meye2cuties » 19 Apr 2006, 03:13

I am looking for info on my grandfather Paul (could be Paulo) D'Agostino. Here is the only info that I can find on him...
born January 1, 1883 in Italy
widower of Grace Agosta D'Agostino
had a brother named Anthony

That is all that I know of him so far and would really like to learn more and try to add to my family line from him.

Thanks for any help that you can provide to me.

Hi Beth,

Welcome to the forum. Lets get started :!:

Where in the US did he live? When & where did Paul die? Do you have his death certificate? Do you know where & when Grace died?

If you don't have your grandparents death certificates, but know where & when for them, I suggest you getting these records. They may provide their brith date and place. Your father's ( if deceased) death certificate may also provide this information. Place of birth is very important, 'cause Italian records are at the town of origion.

Waiting for your reply......... :)

OOPS this posting should have said that this is my great grandfather. Of course no one remembers too much about him, but here is what I have so far. He lived in Pennsylvania, Lackawanna County. He died sometime in May 1957. No I do not have these death certificates but I am in the process of trying to get them. Not sure when my great grandmother died. Will try and get some more information on them soon.

Hi Beth,

Sorry, I thought I found a censes for you to view but it turns out it was the wrong one...Am I correct in assuming your great grandfather could have been born around 188... something? Do you have any idea from which part of Italy he could have been from...North or South? If you speak any Italian if could be the same dialect as yours...

This is just a guess but it could help.

Nuccia :D

A Paolo D'Agostino arrived Ellis Island 4/3/1906 age 22, going to uncle Salvatore Scalini (?) @ 266 W. 53 or 83 St, NY>

http://www.ellisislandrecords.org/searc ... 2200160526

Also checked under De Agostino & Di Agostino, above is only one I found that matches. I also got 187 matches for Antonio D'Agostino. Do you know his birth year?

Ellis Island is a free site, but you need to register to view the records.
