DiMattei

Postby NNLogistics » 15 Jun 2006, 20:44

My GrandFather(Ottavio) DiMattei and grand Mother(Maria Concetta) came from Palermo, Sicily. My quess is around 1915- 1918. They had 7 children, my mother Guiseppina included, all in Brooklyn. I am interested in my grandfathers siblings, I think they all came to the US. Also his parents who I assume stayed in Sicily. However I do believe his grandfather came to the US in the 3rd quarter of the 19th Century. The story is he came thru New Orleans and for some reason was know as Smith?????

Thanks for any help :)

Joe

Hello,
Ottavio Di Mattei left Palermo on 1919, going to visit his father Ottavio

If you need his birth certificate to know his mother name, request it to

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Piazza Giulio Cesare 52
90127 Palermo
Italy

and this is his SSDI, useful to request the birth certificate

OTTAVIO DIMATTEI
b.27 Aug 1892
d.22 Jan 1992

Hi Joe,
Can't link - I'm not imageshack literate...
I found the census on ancestry.com
Your local library may have access, or your Family History Center (a great resource) should be able to get you access.
