Hi Rick and welcome to the forum.

Are you searching for manifests, US census info etc. or Italian records of ancestors or living relatives in US or Italy. The more detail you can provide the easier it will be for people on the forum to help.

Regards,
Elizabeth

I'm new to genealogy. I looking to see if anyone has any of my relatives in their family history. I've been unable to find the passender manifest for Francesco Chimienti. I not sure what's the best way to search Italy for birth and marriage certificates. Appreciate any help.
Regards
Rick Chimienti

Rick,

Is this the 1910 census for your Frank Chimienti?

Rick,

Can you give us a little more info about Francesco. Names of wife, children? I found a few possibilities, but more details can narrow it down.

Mike,

You were too quick for me on the manifest post. Occupation is the same as the 1910 census but Matera is in the wrong province.

Located a passport for this Francesco Chimienti but will wait for verification on what we've found so far before posting.

Yeah, I wish I could find some passports for my ancestors... love the pictures...

Passport says he was naturalized in Chicago... so maybe there in 1900... I see a possibility for that one as well... knowing more about his children will definately help...

Yes, that's him in the 1910 census and as passenger on the Gottardo and him in the passport application dated 9/18/1921. And yes, looks like he was from Matera, next province over from Bari. Thanks
Question: What does it mean on the passport application that he was naturalized in Chicago?
