Looking for Ranieri

Postby ranierifamily » 18 Jan 2008, 18:49

I am researching family history. Looking for my great grandfather Natale Ranieri born Feb 3, 1889 in Italy, married Mary Pettianato who was also born in Italy around 1895. When Natale was 18 yrs old he immigrated to America on the Prinzess Irene from Naples, Italy to Philadelphia. I can find no record of him before or after that. Help please.

Very nice find, Valarie.

Pretty interesting how Natale morphed into Christ(mas) on the 1920 census.

Hey Biff!

Thanks for the smile - I never would hve made the connection.

Having problems again with ancestry.
Not sure what's going on, the site seems to become unstable
on weekends.

No doubt there are plenty of records still to be found for this
family :D .
Before ancestry started having problems, I was looking for
Mary's family in Cook county in 1910...
Her manifest may be a challenge w/o her parents names.
I did notice a different spelling in Calabria: Pettinato

Thanks!
Valarie

Ditto on Ancestry being a pain in the "tuches" on the weekends.
