Maria Maruca family

Postby dgreen » 12 Oct 2006, 02:59

I am looking for information about a Maria Maruca who arrived in the USA around 7 years old in 1904. I don't have any other information.

Thank you to all who posted replies. The only information I had was verbal.
Maria Maruca married Angelo Amato in Buffalo, NY, though there is also story that Angelo's real name was Rudolph, (or Rodolfo), Capraro, born in 1895 and came to NY around 1913, "sponsored" by the Amato family.

How can I verify this?

No other details.....parents name? Brothers or sisters? In which state did she live? Was she married and to whom? Did she have any children?
When did she die and where?
No detail to small...... :wink:

Using search criteria of last name only, all states, and birthdate of +/- 2 years, 1897, female.....found this census of interest, note immigration year of Antoinette....but this is only a remote possibility.......

Located same manifest, even with magnifying glass I cannot make out the writing........was unable to locate Maria in census using general search criteria.......not digging without further info from poster....could you make out anything, destination??????

Wish Ellis Island had the option HeritageQuest does........puts the background in black and the writing in white!!!!!!!

If you are sure of the marriage location, I would send for this info.
You should be able to verify spouse's name, birthdates, birthplace and parents names.

This link should help in locating an address to send for documentation.
