1930 Census

Postby hellosquire » 02 Feb 2007, 06:22

I was wondering if anyone had access to the 1930 Census. In my previous thread "wldspirit" found the 1920 Census record for my great grandfather, Pasquale Nardella (sometimes spelling is Nardelli, or Nardello), Date of Birth Jan. 28th, 1879 or 1880. He resided in New Rochelle, NY, his entire life in the US.

I'm currently searching for his possible naturalization, and I'm dreading the "No Record" waiting period from USCIS. In the '20 Census, he put his status down as "Pa.", and sure enough, I found his declaration of intention from 1919. Yet I couldn't find a petition or naturalization certificate.

He died in 1936, so I'm curious to know if he became naturalized sometime between 1920 and 1930. NARA had no record of his naturalization at the archives, unfortunately, so the answer is weighing heavily towards no record. But I'm optimistic.

This is a possible for the 1930 Census based on a no name search using immigration year +/-5 and place of birth as Italy for New Rochelle.

Name: Patsy Navdelia (The "v" looks like an "r" to me), age 52
38 Woodbury St, New Rochelle, owns home, naturalized
Wife Marie, age 55
Children Tony, age 38? (could Patsy have been 14 when Tony was born?), could be 28, and Marie, age 24
Note Tony's occupation as truck driver is same as 1920 census.

There are a number of discrepancies between the census info here and the 1920 info but still worth a look. Can someone link the image for hellosquire? Thanks.

Wow! It says he was naturalized? I hope it's true - this way USCIS would send me the results quicker rather than a "no record" file (am I right about this?). That is definitely him, I'd love to see the image! I can't imagine where he naturalized, though; I called the Supreme Court today and they told me they had no file on him. Neither did NARA.

Thank you. This is great news. At least I can return to NARA and get a certified copy of the 1920s census showing his status as filing 'first papers' (I found them in the Westchester Co. Archives), and then showing his status as naturalized in the 1930 census. I know it's not the proof they need, but at least it adds weight to my argument.

Hellosquire,
Just odd that we are searching at the same time....
Are you related to Dominick Nardella of Saddle Brook NJ later moved to & is still living in Sallisbury MD?..His late wife Ann is my fathers sister...
I currently am looking for Ann DiGeronimo's Father(Angelo)...& Dominick Nardella(my uncle)says he knew the DiGeronimo family "very well" back in Italy..

I don't think I'm related, but I could be wrong. I know that my g. grandfather had a brother named Nicola, but that's about it. Is Dominick from Bonefro?

Hi Vivian,

Thanks, but unfortunately I found out the hard way that it wasn't him. I went to the archives in Manhattan to look it up, and he was born in a different year and different place, and my g. grandfather died in 1936.
