Colombaro Family

Postby gjcva06 » 07 Oct 2006, 23:50

Does anyone know someone from the Colombaro Family? I am researching my family's geneology and am trying to find what part of Italy they came from.

Thanks.

VJ-- this is fabulous information!!! I'm so excited. I have the death certificates for my grandfather and grandmother and they list the dates of birth but not the places in Italy. The dates do match pretty closely to what you sent me! According to his death certificate, my grandfather was born on July 29, 1886 and my grandmother was born in April 1894.

I just called one of my sisters and woke her up to tell her about the great information you sent me. Thank you so very, very much.

How did you find it? I've been looking everywhere on line. I have found some information on Ancestry.com but nothing like what you sent me.

I'm sorry to sound so off the wall but I really am very happy.

Thank you.

Geri

Geri,
Welcome to the Forum!

I'm so glad the information we found belongs to your family.
The census and military records are from ancestry.
The manifest for Filomena is also from ancestry.
The marriage record is from rootsweb.
No luck on a manifest for Albert tho...
(great search site for ships to NY:
Dr Steve Morse 'one step' searches)

Searching on ancestry just takes practice.
For most of the searches for your grandparent's records
I used approx birth dates and wildcard searches (like col*)
all in Philadelphia. (I assumed you were the one who posted
on rootsweb back in August with your grandfather's first name
and your grandmother's maiden name.)

One record leads to another. Your grandfather's WWII military
record was first, which yielded his birth date.
Your grandmother's manifest was second, which also gave
an approx birth year.
The rest was just hunting thru ancestry with wildcard searches.

All that said, I'm glad you have access to ancestry. It's a great
start.

Next steps?
We have quite a few experts here who can direct you on finding
original records in the US and Italy.


Genealogy can be very rewarding.
We wish you luck on your journey.

Please let us know if you need assistance with anything else.
We all appreciate the opportunity to help you with your family
history!

Hi Geri,

From the information provided by vj, you now have Filomena Petti's town of birth, which is necessary to trace the family in Italy. The LDS Church (Mormons) have filmed the civil records (birth, marriage & death acts) for the town of Santa Croce Di Magliano.

Here is a link to the available films.

Civil records 1809-1900

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

Link to locate your nearest LDS-Family History Center.

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library ... et_fhc.asp

This is a guide on obtaining these films.

And a handy Italain-English genealogical word list.

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/ ... Italia.ASP

As for tracing the Colombaro family, the WWII Card shows born in Pescara. This could mean the town of Pescara or the province of Pescara. I would recommend getting Albert's death certificate, their marriage record & their childrens' birth records, in the hope that they will confirm the town information. Here is a site for obtaining these records.

http://genealogy.about.com/gi/dynamic/o ... nealgy.htm

You may want to see if the city hall of Pescara (town) has Albert's birth record (parent information would definitely help them locate the correct record).

City of Pescara site (provides address & an email address).

I hope this helps & if you have any questions and/or need any further assistance, please let us know.

Keep us posted......we love the stories & people getting excited when they get new information!
