Birth Records Magdelana Andre (de Andre) - Licata

Postby czeffer » 23 Mar 2008, 03:56

I'm looking for the birth record for Magdelana Andre (possibly de Andre)born in Licata May 8, 1881. First name had many different spellings in different documents - so this is my best guess. I have a basic idea of the parents names from documents here.

This is the best I have:
Father: Guiseppe Andre or de Andre
Mother (maiden): Angela Calamita

The names may not be accurate as Magdelana did not read or write - so people will spell it how they thought it was spelled.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Correct spelling of the name is either Maddalena or Magdalena. Last name is probably D'Andrea.

Someone found her on a ship manifest as Maddalena D'Andrea.

I plan to use Maddalena on my research as this is the name used when she left Italy.

I guess my next step is to find her record of birth. This may be a challange. I'm going to use the year calculated from the ship manifest - as she changed her age as the wind blew. According to the ship manifest (and a day of birth in December) she was born in 1882 - but by 1932 she had shaved 8 years off her age by stating she was born in 1890.

Thank you for your help.
Grazie mille - Cheryl
