Any Ideas? Iacovitto

Postby Sirena » 21 Aug 2007, 23:08

Hi,
I'm new to this forum but I've been searching for information for many years. I've been unsucessful in finding any information on my grandmother -- and she is the one that I know the most information. Her name is Annamaria Iacovitto. She was born in San Giuliano di Puglia. She came through Ellis Island at 20 which would be in 1916. No matter which search I try, I have been unable to find any Iacovitto. Her father, Cipriano Iacovitto had come here and died shortly after 1900. I've been to San Giuliano but there is no one with that name. Everyone told me that the name comes from Casacalenda but I didn't find anyone there either! Her mother's name was Morelli which is from San Giuliano.
The spelling above is correct but I've tried Jacovitto and Yacovitto thinking that is the pronounciation. If you have any ideas where to go from here, I'd appreciate the help. Thanks.

Did your grandmother have a sister name Filomena?

Here is your grandmothers manifest.

I used www.stevemorse.org site, selected the gold form and put anna for the first name and the letter I in the last name. I left everything else blank.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck

Elizabeth

Siren -

You will actually need to go to the next page when the Ellis Island record comes up (from my previous post). Anna Marie's record is the page after what comes up. Try this link. Otherwise from the previous post, just select go to next page and she is line 9.

Hope this one works for you.

In the 1920, came also Rosa IACOVITTO coming from San Giuliano
page 1
http://ellisisland.org/search/shipManif ... 0792%2ETIF

page 2
http://ellisisland.org/search/shipmanif ... 5303020771
the surname was wrote as Iacovitti, but with final "o" correction...

and joining the husband Raffaele PICANZA ( mistaken in Piconza).. she no relatives in Italy; this could be the sister of Annamaria...

It is very strange that in the San Giuliano di Puglia no records...
rosa, as Annamaria was born in this place....
maybe you can say us more... abt your ancestor...

Thank you all so much for your help! I can't believe that I after all this time, you found it so easily. Rosina was my grandmother's sister and her husband Raffael both of whom I remember as a child.They lived in Altoona, PA.
I know that her father (Cipriano) died here in RI but lived in Massachusetts with a brother. My grandmother always looked for his grave but couldn't find it although she knew the name of the cemetary. They have no record. He was here alone. Her mother died shortly after....I'd say about 1903 in San Giuliano.
When I was in San Giuliano, the priest was busy with the feast & first communion preparations and I had to leave before he had time available. I will write to him.
Does anyone know if they have marriage records at Ellis Island? She said that she got married there because her uncle sent a friend to pick her up and since he wasn't a relative, she couldn't leave.
Thank you again. :D

yes I understand, but with priest... and church's records... better don't wait us nothing... however you say San Giuliano di puglia, but you sure? in Campobasso province it also are San Giuliano del Sannio( ex San Giuliano di Sepino).. in ship's manifest no specified what San Giuliano are... you see the LDS microfilms?

That is definitely my great-grandfather. I have some notes from my grandmother and he was born in 1859 so that would make the age correct. I am sure that it is S. Giuliano di Puglia because my grandmother always said the whole name of the town. I have the list of films to check this weekend. There is a center close by. THank you very much.

note: it appears from the manifest pg 2 & detained page
that Anna Maria was helped by the St Raphael Italian Society
emigrant aid societies
As part of the great work in behalf of Italian immigrants undertaken by
Bishop Scalabrini of Piacenza, Italy, members of his Congregation of
St. Charles Borromeo established the Society of St. Raphael for
Italian Immigrants at New York in 1891.
Its home is managed by the Sisters of Charity (Pallottine).
Only women and children are kept there; men are given meals and
advice, but lodge elsewhere.
The chaplain and agent meet the immigrants at Ellis Island.
A branch of this society was organized at Boston, in 1902.
In December, 1908, Archbishop Blenk of New Orleans appointed
an Italian priest as chaplain to look after immigrants from Italy
and open a home for them.
Work here is carried on by the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
