Gaetano Cuda

Postby Ricky1016 » 04 Aug 2007, 23:42

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone new the English equivilant to the Italian name "Gaetano." I was looking for my ancestor, Gaetano Cuda, in the census records and I can't seem to locate him, in fact, I only found records on 1 Gaetano. I was wondering if there was and English version he could have maybe went by...

Thanks!!

Ricky

Gaetano is also a last name. Have you tried checking to see if his name was listed backwards? Census records are often inaccurate. Just a thought.

His name was listed on his father's passenger records...like it listed all the kids, and he was born in 1899 and it said he lived in Pittsburgh, PA (that info. was recorded in 1917)

LMAO!! The Pittsburgh Italians are the bestest liars :) Trust me I know!!

Try looking for his father. Try looking for just the last name. My Aluise's are in Sharpsburg (Suburb of Pittsburgh) and One changed his name from Pasquale Aluise to Charles Fair (to get a better job with the railroad, which he did) My great grandfather changed his name from Vincenzo Aluise to James, the other brothers all american-ized their names.

Oh and then you have the whole Aluise vs. Aloise. In America it is Aluise but on most of the ship records and in Italy (I think) it is Aloise..... So

Maybe you can look up Pittsburgh census's for the are he lived in and then go from there. Look to see if any first names are similar or something?? AND ALWAYS look at the census record even if you do not think it could be him. Like they have said the internet versions of the census's are not always correct. I have found names that are not spelled correctly AT ALL!!

Don't give up hope. the people here are amazing and if anyone can help you they can!!

What was his fathers name?? I found a Earnest Cuda (born 1898) in Pittsburgh in 1930. He was in the Hospital. Can you get onto Ancestry.com?
