Sabato Amato

Postby barruzza » 06 Jun 2006, 06:44

Im looking for information on My Grandfather.
His name was Sabato Amato and he was born in
San Vitaliano near Naples. He came to America
on April 25, 1912. I think he was born in 1896.
On the ships manifest he lists his father's name
as Mariano. Im looking for his siblings and parents
names. Or any other information about him.
Also, I have another Grandfather (still living at 95)
He is from Sicily and was in the war. I was wondering
the best way to find out about his army career. His
name is Salvatore Barruzza and he spent time in a German
work camp in newenburg?

You will need to write to the town of origin for records as the Lds only has filmed records available for this location up to 1860........

have you obtained all US records?

Do you know where he lived in the US? If you can provide this information, we maybe able to obtain other records (census, military, death info) for you if you do not have them already.

Hi there,

Here is the manifest that you mention above about Sabato Amato. Per this manifest, he is going to go see his brother, Antonio in Chicago, Illinois. Sabato did leave his father, Mariano in Italy. And Sabato was born in San Vitaliano.

The Family History Center does have microfilm that you can order and rent for $5.75 a roll, but the film is limited from 1809-1865. Here is the link for the film numbers.

For any record after 1865, you will have to write to the town itself. Here is the address.

Here is a link that will help you translate your letter into Italian.
