Hello,
if you are interested to receive also Nicolò and Teresa marriage certificate or record, and Teresa birth certificate or record you can write a request in Italian to

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
Via R. Salerno
88065 Guardavalle (CZ)
Italy

or you can contact Archivio di Stato di Catanzaro

or you can rent Guardavalle civil record microfilmto FHL (mormon church) nearest to you

If you need to write the request, tell me, that I make the transaltion for you, but be specific of what you really want or look for,
bye Riccardo :lol:

Helen,
Thanks for getting back with us.
Please let us know what your mother thinks!

------------------
re: Orazio on 1913 manifest
Mis-spellings were not unusual on manifests.
One possibility:
If the person couldn't read or write they couldn't
check the spelling of their name on the manifest.
Not sure what the 'americanized version' of your
grandfather's name would have been.
Perhaps a census will help.
------------------
possible brother:
1901 manifest
18 Mar 1901 SS California Naples to NY
line 25
Raffaele Martinis, 24, married
mason
last residence Guardavalle
joining brother Agazo Martinis in Philadelphia (same location as 1900 manifest)
