inquiry about surname GERBEVILLE

Postby angelinav » 22 Jun 2006, 11:34

Can you PLEASE help me.........?I have two papers.
A copy of my Grandfather's birth record.
Bonaventure(a) GERBEVILLE b. 20 Sept 1876 in Rionero-in-Vulture Pz. Bas. Italy
Paper said Father was Ernesto and Mother was Maria Cima. He was 40 and she was 37 . He was a tailor and she was a seamstress . They lived on Plazza du Pupolo (?)
Second paper is his Petition of Naturalization from the Waltham Ma. Arctives .
Sailed on the Massilia (Fore Line) from Naples on Nov 26 1892 to the Port of NY.
This petition paper was dated 1910,I believe.
I went to NY and all I found was a child listed ...Filio Bonaventura age 16
no other name.
From 1892 until 1901 I can't find anything about him...where was he with whom was he living?
Years ago I asked my greataunt Antonia (Zia Nina ) about this and she said she and her brother came together .She was twelve . The next person on the list next to my (?) was Filio Antonio 12 ....Can this be her??? My Aunt married Anselmo DIPACE and Lived in NY .I believe the Bronx. My Grandfather married in Newport,RI 1902 .
They had another Sister (I think) Concetta GERBEVILLE who married Carlo
TOTERO .I don't know where she married ,but she lived in Bronx. Then Westchester NY.
Zia Nina died in Harrison NY.1974 angelav12@verizon.net (new)

Suanj or Riccardo would know more, but GERBEVILLE does not sound like an Italian name, but perhaps an American version of something else......
nor does it show up on surname distribution for Italy.

Ok, everyone. This is part of the manifest for the ship "Massilia" arrived Dec 6, 1892 NY from Naples.

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/EIDB ... splay=true

Could line 9 be this person (age would be correct) traveling with mother line 8? Can't find Gerbeville on manifest.

in line 11 of ship's manifest are a Michele Gerbelis and this surname is so similar to Gerbeville.. http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/9825/b ... ura9yx.gif
Gerbeville is no a italian surname, perhaps is englisicized... post here the birthact so we can read better.. filio=Figlio=son, and the mother of Bonaventura is Maria Lucia Berenice or Berrinice (?)... and so also for Antonio(male ) or Antonia(female) and your aunt Nina could be she, because Nina is a diminutive of Antonia/antonina/nina.. regards, suanj

Aha............on this ship manifest, the person writes the son or daughter before each name.......I have not seen this before.

But the name GERBEVILLE, did not sound Italian at all.....

Many Hugs Suanj,
Lisa :)

Hi lisa in the ship's manifest abt 1890 and until 1893 or so, the officer write Figlio for so, Figlia for daughter, and Moglie for wife, so if someone cannot find some ship's manifest , well it can to try by this keys, they write only the head's surname, and for all other members the relationship and the first names! kisses, suanj
