Gidaro from Isca Sull Jonio

Postby Gidget6880 » 18 Jul 2006, 21:27

Hello, I am working on researching my fathers side of the family from Italy. My grandfather's name was Anthony Vincent Gidaro his father Dominico Gidaro(b.6/1888 d.??) came over from Italy in 1913. Went back to Italy and married my great grandmother Catherina Procopio(b. 9/1892 d.4/1982) in 1921 and he came back to the US the same year, she came over in 1923. They had 4 children Anthony, Stephen, Marie, and Elizabeth and lived in Kulpmont, Pa. (Northumberland Co.)

We had found a picture in my grandmother's attic of my great grandfather and his family, his brother and his family and my great great grandmother. I believe his brother came to america around the same time that he did and either him or his brother went back to Italy to get their mother but I don't know when or either of their names. If anyone has any information on them I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, Lisa

This is too funny...

You do the manifest...I'll look for draft cards? We can tag team, but not tag each other, right?

Hello Lisa,
since you want to know the parents names of Domenico Gidaro and Caterina Procopio, and you also have their birth date, you can make a request of birth certificate, in Italian, asking to put parents names, to Isca sullo Ionio civil record office

Comune
Ufficio dello Stato Civile
Piazza Municipio
CAP 88060
Isca sullo Ionio (CZ)
Italy

or contact Archivio di Stato di Catanzaro, to have the photocopy of the original birth record, where you find names, ages and jobs of their parents

http://wwwdb.archivi.beniculturali.it/S ... TANZARO%22

or rent Isca sullo Ionio civil record microfilm to FHL (mormon church)

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... o+civile++

I hope it helps, bye Riccardo :lol:

Nice find Nonna J!

Lisa, We've given you lots of possible family names...

Just some FYI but I won't post everything yet since I need to do laundry...

Antonio Gidaro married Theresa.,..

Bruno Gidaro is with Lora..

Francesco Gidaro is with Connie Nestico yes living at 541 Chestnut Str...(I did see this before my computer crashed..ancestry giving me trouble today)

Nicola lists James Gidaro as nearest relative on WW2 draft cards..

Now, if you are comfortable going through the Ellis Island site and viewing manifests, you could try and see who made how many trips to Italy and maybe you will find your relative. Otherwise, will try to help later.

Maria, for Caterina...it was her second trip to the US, right? She was already a citizen on this journey?
