Surnames Zambrotta from Sanza

Postby Dianeb » 28 Mar 2007, 17:17

I cannot find my grandmother (Gelsomina Zambrotta) at ellisisland.org nor castle Island. I know that she came to the US in 1898 or 1900. but I keep hitting a blank She is from Sanza. Where else can I look and where can I obtain a copy of her birth registration and my gr grandparents marriage certificate ?

Is Zambrotta her maiden surname or married surname? What was her husbands name, fathers name, mothers surname ? Anyone of these could help. Did she come alone or with children? Siblings? Where did she immigrate to? When was she born?

If you can provide us with any more details we might be able to help you better.

Gelsomia Zambrotta was her maiden name .DOB 1898 she left Sanza when she was 1 or 2. She migrated to Brooklyn NY. I do not know if her siblings traveled with her but I cannot find them either. I only found my gr grandfather Giovanni Zambrotta in 1898 on the Alsatia at Castle Garden. Her mothers maiden name might have been Maria Calabrese not sure :( Siblings are Dominick, Nicholas, Salvatore (Sam)Frank, Danny and Rose. She marrried Salvatore Mistretta around 1916 in Brooklyn NY.. Hope this helps

Diane,

You could try writing away for Josephines Immigration records under the FOIA.

The address is:

US Citizenship & Immigration Services
The National Records Center
FOIA Division
PO Box 648010
Lee's Summit
MO
64064 5570

And a link to print out the request form.

http://www.ice.gov/doclib/g-639.pdf

And just a bit of info..

http://usdoj.com/g-639.html

I'm mailing one out today for some info on one of my great grandparents as well thanks to the advice given to me by another member Debbie who has been very successful using this method.

Good luck and keep us posted.
