i need help for my research..!!! please HELP??

Postby justinfrombklyn » 04 Dec 2007, 20:14

my name is justin salvadore i don't know my birth father but what i would like to find out is where my great great grandfather came from in italy all i know is he was from naples, italy but i don't know what city or town.

i have a 87 year old grandmother vincenza who gave me alot of information about the family.. her maiden name is urgola

her father was antonio urgola her mother was mary lauri... i searched ancestry.com websites and all i could find is his world war 1 draft card.. and all i could find from her is her census report stating she was 10 in 1910.. antonio's father was giovanni urgola.. his brothers was joseph and carmine and his sister was caroline.. his mother was elizabeth who died in italy.. i found the ellis island record of his father coming to ellis island in 1912 at 70 years old.. with his granddaugher giovanna.. my grandmother confirmed this.. it says he departed from naples but thats all i know...

and my great grandmother Mary's parents were biagio and vincenza and all i know from them is they were from Naples too.

however my grandmother said she thinks that vincenza was from salerno and biagio was from palma

what i would like to find out is the records from Italy if there is any possible and records about my great great grandparents Giovanni and Elizabeth and my great grandfather antonio..

if anyone can find this information out it will help me alot in my research

thank you

Hi Justin!
From your other post (and this post):
previous post

what i would like to find is the birth certificates of any of my
great great grandparents and death information

what i would like to find out is the records from Italy if there is
any possible and records about my great great grandparents
Giovanni and Elizabeth and my great grandfather antonio..


For Italian record research, you’ll need to know the exact town
where your g-g-grandparents were born.
Sometimes this can be found in the family’s US records.

Once you have the location in Italy, the Family History Library may
have your town(s) records on microfilm for you to order and view
at one of their centers.

Also, you mentioned you had Giovanni Urgola’s 1912 manifest?

i found the ellis island record of his father coming to ellis island
in 1912 at 70 years old.. with his granddaugher giovanna..
my grandmother confirmed this..
it says he departed from naples but thats all i know...


Page 2 states he was born in Napoli.

Are there any US records, that you don't have, that you need
assistance in finding?

If he was born in Napoli then the comune there should be able to help.
