Prosdocimo & Olivo

Postby Prosdo » 19 Mar 2008, 05:14

Hello everyone. I am trying to find information information regarding my great grandparents. My great grandfather was Giuseppe Prosdocimo from Calabria Italy and I am assuming my great grandmother Amelia Olivo was from the same area. My great grandmother also had two brothers Gregorio Olivo and Beniamino Olivo. Her mother's name was I believe Concetta Olivo. Does anyone know how I can find any information on them? Thanks so much.

Prosdo,
Here you have Beniamino's birth date:

... unfortunately it seems that the Family History centers don't have microfilms about the years you're interested...

Stephanie,

is it possible that Gregorio travelled his first time to USA with his father Gaetano?
Take a look at this manifest:


New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957
about Gregerio Olivo
Name: Gregerio Olivo
Arrival Date: 1 Jul 1900
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1884
Age: 16
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Naples, Italy
Ethnicity/Race­/Nationality: Italian
Ship Name: Bolivia
Search Ship Database: Search the Bolivia in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Line: 20
Microfilm Serial: 15
Microfilm Roll: T715_136
Page Number: 57

[img=http://img514.imageshack.us/img514/4977/olivogregorio1900arrivasa0.th.jpg]

this boy was travelling with his father Gaetano (approx. birth year 1854), from Fossato Serralta...

So if this record is correct you can see that
Amalia, Beniamino and Gregorio's parents were Concetta Lamanna and Gaetano Olivo (1854)

Laura :D

Edit to add details:

there is another arrival for Gregorio in 1905, he was single...

Laura, yes that probably is my great grandfather traveling with my great grandmother. I believe he made two trips. One to prepare a home and the other to return with Amelia Olivo. Beniamino could have arrived in 1914. I will ask my grandfather. As far as Gaetano I suppose so. My grandfather never knew his grandfather's name. As far as the Prosdocimo side. Is there anyway I can find out who Giuseppe Prosdocimo's parents were? Again thank you all for the information. It is amazing.

Thanks Laura. It worked now. Is there a way to find Giuseppe Prosdocimo's parents online or would I have to possibly write to Italy? I'm not sure how that works.

You can write a letter only written in italian, to get your Giuseppe Prosdocimo real birth record (so you can read his parents names, ages, occupation, address where birth occurred) to:

Comune
Ufficio di Stato civile
Corso V. Emanuele III, 1
CAP 88050
Fossato Serralta (CZ)

I hope it helps
bye Riccardo

How does that process work? And is there a place I can get a letter translated?

Thank you Laura. That will help me in requesting her information. I was not aware of her birth date.
