Mozzetti

Postby Giorgia » 10 Jul 2007, 19:47

Hi!(I'm new)
I'm searching info about my ancestor(in fact I would really like to know if I have realtives in USA).
My great grandfather emgirated in Usa nearly in 1910,his name was Celeste Mozzetti,from the part of Switzeralnd who speak italian(Ticino,Vogorno to be more precise).I know that my great grandfather came back but when I've search him on the Ellis island site i found that when He arrived in USa he had joined a brother(i think) called Modesto Mozzetti. I don't really be able to understand the record because is old.I think that the adress of Modesto was 217 Montgomery Av. San Francisco (on what I read in ellis island site).
Anyone can help me and give me more information`Maybe about Modesto?
Thank you and REALLY SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH!!! :D

Here is your great grandfathers WWI Draft Registration Card:

It states that he is born June 27, 1888, has a wife and child he left behind in Switzerland and works in Gonzales, California as a "milker" in a DAIRY.

Will continue to look for information on Modesto Mozzetti

Giorgia:

When I looked at the Ellis Island record Celeste's brothers name looked like Baptista Mozzetti. I found this record in the 1910 Census. Napa County is very close to San Francisco.

1910 Census of California, Napa County, St. Helena

Mozzetti, Baptista J. Head, 58, born Switz. Italian Immigrated 1880 Contractor, Stone Mason
Mozzetti, Liberata, Wife, 51, born Switz. Italian Immigrated 1883
Mozzetti, Severina C., Daughter 21, born in California, Laundry
Mozzetti, Julio, Son, 18, born in California, Salesman
Mozzetti, Joseph, Son, 17, born in California, Glove Factroy

Does this look like your family?

i don't think this Silvio is the same.In ellis island I found that he came in Usa in 1920 not in '29..I think the 1920 is correct because in the record(always by ellis island) i read that silvio joined Celeste mozzetti(his Brother..)
