Siblings of Giuseppe (Joseph) Nardi from San Giuseppe

Postby rpnardi » 05 Oct 2006, 06:38

I am looking for my grandfather's siblings. He was adopted by the Mirabella family but kept his surname of Nardi. He immigrated to America in 1913 aboard the SS Mendoza with his wife Maria Vallelunga both at the age of 27. My family claims that he was adopted by the Mirabella's because his family was too big and fell on hard times so he was adopted out. He was born in San Guiseppe but I have not been able to find any birth records or anyone who can check for them. Any help is appreciated.
He was born in 1886 and died in Michigan in Nov 1947.

Regards,
Russ Nardi

Hi again,

Since Maria was born in Partinico & they most likely married in her town of birth, you may want contact the city hall of Partinico & request these two records. Email & address for the city hall is provided at this site.>

Request extracts, not certificates.....extracts will provide more information.

Let us know how you make out

JCSM,

Thanks for your help here - the information about his birth came from relatives and I have not been able to verify any of that. The Ellis Island info has helped but there are still many things I need source verification on.

I will try the marriage info you suggested and see what comes up there. If I could find info on his parents, that would start a whole new research project!

All help is greatly appreciated......

Regards,
Russ

Hi Russ,

To trace the Vallelunga family in Italy, the LDS Church (Mormons) have filmed the church (sacraments) & civil records (birth, marriage, & death acts) for the town of Partinico. Here are links to the available films.

Civil Records (1820-1910).

Church Records (1611-1911).

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... siastici++


A guiide to obtaining these films.

An Italian-English genealogical word list.

If you find that Giuseppe Nardi's birth town (Palermo?) is not Partinico, we can check for films for his town.

If you have any questions and/or need further assistance, please let us know & keep us posted on your progress, we love the stories!

Happy hunting!

Hi Russ & jcsm!
If this is your Giuseppe Nardi,
his WWI Draft Registration Card
states he was born in Palermo.
He served in the cavalry in Italy
for 3 years - there may be some
records relating to his service...

VJ,
I just checked with one of my aunts who confirmed that my grandfather was in WW1 and that they lived at the address in Highland Park so your help here was greatly appreciated. Now this confirms that he was born in Palermo. I actually have a photo of him in his Italian Calvery Uniform!
I will hopefully get some birth records to confirm his parents and siblings. Again, any more help is greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Russ

For the records, there are some Nardi's in Chicago.

I've met at least one of them.

Hi Russ,

The LDS Church has also filmed the records for the town of Palermo.

Here is the information on the films.

Civil 1820-1908

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... Palermo+++

Church records.....You'll need to know the exact church before getting into these......when ready, just click on the church of interest or your LDS-FHC will be able to locate the films for you.

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... umns=*,0,0

Do you have census records for this family? Have you obtained US birth records? Death records?

Hope it helps.

:) jcsm

ps. Thanks, vj, for the town confirmation! :D

Hello,
Giuseppe Nardi is stated that he was born in Palermo, on the second page of the Manifest, last colomn on the right (ship Mendoza, year 1913, line 21)

first page of manifest

second page of manifest

If you want to know his siblings names, first of all you start requesting, in italian, his birth certificate (estratto per riassunto dell'atto di nascita) to Palermo civil record office

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
C.A. Sig.ra FIDUCIA
Piazza Giulio Cesare 52
90127 Palermo
Italy


add to your request a self addressed envelope + international reply coupon + 5 euro cents

When you receive the birth certificate you know the names of his parents, so after that you request, always in italian, an hystorical family certificate (Certificato storico di famiglia) asking for the names and dates of parents and siblings. The Ufficio di Stato civile wants you to pay about € 2.50 euros for each name found

I hope it helps, bye Riccardo :lol:
