Federico Mondioli

Postby caliandris » 15 Jan 2008, 10:03

Hi everyone,
I am looking for some help in tracing my great grandmother's first husband's family.

Her name was Ruth Elizabeth Charlotte Dickins, , known as Lottie, and she was born 1876 in London. Unusually for the time, she travelled extensively because she was a principal dancer, and in the late 1800s she was working on Broadway and 38th Street at the Abbey Theatre in Cinderella, in New York.

Previously, I only knew that she married an Italian, reputedly Count Mondioli, and had a daughter Caterina. Her husband died at some time before 1901, and she returned home to England in a hurry with her daughter. The family story is that she was afraid that her husband's family might take over the child.

I have found records of a marriage of Federico Mondioli and a Lottie Dickeys and I think this may be why I found it so difficult to trace - because the surname of my ancestor was mis-spelled.

However, I can find no other mention of Federico Mondioli, who married Lottie on 24 Aug 1896 in Manhattan, or his parents Agostino Mondioli and Azzura Rizzoli, except for the entry on the Church of Latter Day Saints IGI.

The only information I have is that he came from Italy, that he was reputedly a Count, and that my aunt, Caterina Mondioli, later Caterina Worcester, went to visit the family in Italy at some stage in her life.

I can find nothing about the Counts Mondioli, which seems very strange. Usually finding information about people who are likely to have land and possessions is easy to locate.

If anyone can offer me any information, or an idea of where to go to get information, I will be extremely grateful.
Thanks
Fee

Hi Fee and welcome! :D

From:
http://www.italiangen.org/NYCMarriage.stm

found this record about the marriage of your ancestor, as you can see here his surname is Mondaoli:

Mondaoli Federico Aug 24 1896 Manhattan Certificate number: 13515 M534

Pickens Lottie Aug 24 1896 Manhattan Certificate number: 13515 P252

Perhaps you can request a copy of this certificate, probably he declared his exact place of birth....

Laura :D

Edit: added Amedeo's record

Mondioli Amadeo Jun 27 1896 Manhattan Certificate N. 10615 M534
DeGemaro Concettina Jun 27 1896 Certificate N. 10615 Manhattan D256

Thank you Laura, for your help.

I have made a note of the details, but I can't currently afford to order certificates, that's why I was hoping to find someone who might know some general background.

I think the name the family was using in America was definitely Mondioli - I already have my great-grandmother's second wedding certificate, in which she is shown as "Mondioli" and her daughter is "Mondioli" too. The mispelling of her maiden name variously as Dickeys and Pickens indicates that the records are either badly spelled in the original, or mistakes have crept in during the transcription. Her name was actually Dickens.

On the other hand, maybe they anglicised the name when they moved and it was originally Mondaoli? Although that seems to throw up even fewer links when googled than Mondioli!

Anyway, it was very nice to be welcomed, and I have made a note of the certificate details.
