Welcome to ItalianGenealogy Kristy!!!!! :D

Can you tell us what records you have obtained so far, other than the census? Did the parents and other children immigrate as well, or just Battista? In which state did he live?
This way we don't duplicate research!!!!!!!

I have found the 1930 census and his ss death index and he lived in Minnesota

And Yes the parent and came over in 1921 also and the other kids came over also


Salvatore Iaquinto Was 70 in 1930
Maria Iaquinto was 58 in 1930


Brothers and Sisters

Frank I think he came over with my Great Grandfather was 22 in 1930
Catherine I think she came over with Parents Was 20 in 1930
Maryann I think she came over with Parents Was 15 in 1930

and I think that there other sister is on the same page

Mary Iaquinto came over in 1911 at 15 and married John Iaquinto
she is 34 in 1930 and he is 43

An interesting link for naturalization in Minnesota:

I haven't explored this one, but it is the same as Ancestry uses.

As for the parents of the ancestors......did Salvatore and Maria marry in Italy? If so, you can send for the marriage certificate, which will list the parents name.
Here is a link to the town of interest, including town hall address:

http://calabria.indettaglio.it/eng/comu ... fiore.html

and an interactive letter for your request:

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

If you are not interested in sending to Italy for this document, you may find the names listed on their naturalization records.
