Looking for info on Iannibelli surname

Postby jimeeye » 24 Oct 2007, 20:34

Hello All,

I am trying to research information about my grandfather (paternal). From what I know he was born in Potenza, some time around 1890. Name was Michele Iannibelli. Came to US via Ellis Island around 1900. Would like to trace back family tree.

Thanks

Hi jimeeye and welcome to the forum!
Do you have any of your family's US records yet?
If you’re looking for original Italian records,
You’ll need your grandfather’s town of birth.
Do these two records look like they could
belong to him?
Thanks!
Valarie

Name: Michele Iannibelli
Birth: 2 Oct 1887 - Italy, Spinoso
(probably Spinoso, province Potenza, region Basilicata)

That’s great news!
Since you have your grandfather’s birth date and town
of birth, researching his records in Italy are possible!
You may find more than one Michele Iannibelli
though.
Check out Italian naming patterns
The civil registration records are available for you to order
from your local Family History Library. Check this link for
The address near you:
FamilySearch Home page
Films available:
Topic Italy, Potenza, Spinoso - Civil registration
Titles Registri dello stato civile di Spinoso (Potenza), 1809-1929
Spinoso (Potenza). Ufficio dello stato civile
These records will be in Italian, but with practice you’ll be
able to work thru them.
Very helpful Italy Research Outline from FamilySearch.
You may want to locate a few more Vital Records from NY while you’re
waiting for your films to arrive. The US records may have Michele’s
parents names on them (especially his marriage record if he
was married here)
Please let us know how you do & if you need help!

Here are a couple of links to websites with information/pictures of Spinoso. Both are in Italian.

Madalena was my Grandmother Maiden name Milio but I thought that they had married in US. I'm not sure if they came over together or met in NY.
