Census Help

Postby Natalie1 » 12 Sep 2007, 15:31

Hello! If anyone has access to Census information, could you look up someone for me? I am looking for my Great-Great Aunt who died in Brooklyn in 1927 at 47 years old. Her name was Maria Santa Lategano (maiden name Virelli). She may have lived in NYC earlier, although I don't know when she came over from Italy. She married over there in 1897 & I can't even find an Ellis Island Manifest for her. :(
Thanks,
Natalie

Yes, V.J. I thinks that's her. Her husband's name was Vincenzo, but I think Jimmy is the Americanized version of that name. Thank you again!

VJ, I'm sure that is them. It dosen't list a Wife & my Great-Great Aunt passed away in 1927 so I think it's them. Funny though, at the top of the Census it lists the name Grillo. That's a name my Aunt told me to look up, but I'm not sure how we are related. Interesting! Thanks!

I really don't know where the Lateganos were from. Since Maria Santa was from Ferrandina and according to Familysearch.org they were married Dec. 16, 1897 in Ferrandina, I assumed that Vincenzo Lategano was from there as well. I guess you can't assume anything when it comes to genealogy. I'll order the Naturalization record & hope for some added information. I really appreciate your time & help with this.

OH MY GOODNESS VJ!! Lines 11-20 are my family!! Well I'm not sure about line19, I can't figure out the name & not sure about the Grillo connection on line 10. But if I am reading the age of line 20 Maria Pipio correct as 76, that is my Great-Great-GREAT Grandmother who was born in 1824 in Italy. I didn't even know that she came over here! Marietta was indeed a sister which I don't know what happened to her after she came over. The address that everyone went to was 129 Roosevelt Street, a street no longer in existance in NYC. They must have piled into that tenement :cry: . If we had a jumping up & down smilie, I'd use it here. This is a great find. I don't know how to tell you how excited & happy & appreciative I am that you found this!!!! Wow, many, many thanks!

Natalie,
Thanks for the jumping up and down image :D
I think we all know what you mean :wink:
It's great when one search turns up a lot
of great information and more clues.
I'm so glad we could pull together some more
pieces for you.
Please let us know if you need anything else -
you have a fun family to research.
I especially enjoyed reading about Caterina,
she must have been very special.
Valarie
