MANGANARO-TERRAZZANO

Postby karendankar » 29 May 2007, 19:31

I am searching for any relatives of Francesco MANGANARO b. 1867 in Melito di Porto Salvo, clabria. He married Olimpia TERRAZZANO who was also b. 1871 in Melito di Porto Salvo. They came to America abt 1894 after they were married. A passenger list reports them leaving Naples, Italy and arriving in New York. I would love to know more about these 2 families and also meet anyone still living in Italy.

Grazie,
Karen L Roberts

Hi Karen!
I served in the navy with a Vincent Manganaro in 1961. He was stationed at McGuire Air Force base in a navy squadron and lived in Toms River, New Jersey at the time. He was a career navy guy. I guess he would be about 80's now if still living. Are you in any way related to him?

Thank you for all the items posted regarding my search I have just started this search for my step-father who does not know very much about his family. He does remember his uncles and knows some cousins, but no history. Again, thanks for everything and I will follow up on all your suggestions!!

Hi Karen....recieved your pm. Don't worry about the Italian records, we have alot of members both in Italy and a few here in the US who will translate any documents you may recieve.

Happy to hear you have done some US research, this gives you a better idea of what and who you are looking for....... :D

This is an interactive letter for requesting records, very easy to use and will translate into Italian for you:

http://www.circolocalabrese.org/resourc ... /index.asp

Now this will not give you the BEST translation..... :? , but is enough to get by:

Don't be shy, we are here to help you in any way we can!! No question to big or to small!!!

Good Luck,

Thanks to everyone that has responded to my quest. I have received a lot of information that I did not know. I am still waiting to hear back from an archivist in Italy. How long can this take?

I finally gave up sending by email, it kept being returned, so I finally snail mailed it. Now we'll see how long this takes.

Oh boy!!!! I received an answer, BUT.... I can't read/speak Italian!! Can someone help me, please???

"In riferimento alla Vs richiesta del 30/05/2007 qui pervenuta in
data del 12/06/2007 prot 10750 le comunichiamo che dall'anno
1866 all'anno 1872 non abbiamo trovato nei nostri archivi nessun
MANGANARO Francesco.
Tra l'altro, le comunichiamo, che il cognome Manganaro è molto
presente nel nostro Comune, e per conoscere meglio le sue
origini di appartenenza dovrebbe avere dati più completi.

Distinti Saluti

L'ufficiale di Stato Civile"

I can understand, vaguely, what this is about, but I'm not quite sure.
Grazie,
Karen L Roberts

Is there a site that would translate any letter from English to Italian?? I have been asked to provide more information and with the only site given, there is not a form letter available for that.

Karen, you can post your letter here at the forum for a translation into Italian......do not use the translation sites for this......they are only useful for simple phrases or to navigate a web page..........

If you don't feel at ease posting it in the public forum, let me know and I can suggest several members who are able to do this.
