Biagio (Blace) D'Anna

Postby richie7 » 11 Apr 2007, 16:29

Hi all, I'm looking for information on Biagio (Blace) D'Anna who lived in San Jose, California were he died in 1925. His spose was Giusippina Canamellas. I have found a wealth of information on the children but very little information on Biagio (sometimes spelled Biaggio) himself. His brother Julius lived in Rochester NY and changed his name to Julius Dana.

Do you have any census records and/or his ship manifest? Have you obtained his death certificate? Birth records for his children born in the US? Church records?

Boston Passenger Lists, 1820-1943

Note: Manifest has Giusippina's naturalization information?

Thanks for the reply!

I have census records for 1910 amd 1920. I guess what I'm looking for is information on his death. I have some recolections from relatives that he died in 1925 but no offical records. I'm looking for information on cause and date of death.

If you believe he died in California, have you ordered a death certificate from the state?

This is from ancestry.com
Vital Records
California vital records prior to July 1st, 1905 are found within the county where the event occurred. Records thereafter were kept by the State Registrar of Vital Statistics. No statewide index is available for records prior to 1905. For birth, marriage and death records prior to 1905, write to the clerk of the county in question. For birth, marriage and death records after 1905, write:

Office of Vital Records and Statistics
Department of Health Services

P.O. Box 730241
Sacramento, CA 94244-0241
