help translating Italian Passport

Postby mb87384n » 10 Dec 2010, 08:01

Hello forum! I was wondering if someone could help translate some of the information from my ggrandfather's passport. See image below.

Some information we already know that may help in translating:

Nicola Russo born 2/21/1885. Baptized at eccl parsch St Thomas Aquinatis, Paolisi, Benevento, Italy.

Year of immigration- July 1 1907. Under name "Nicolo Rusfo" with brother Raffaele Rusfo from Paolisi. According to this, his fathers name was Pasquall.

It appears that his mothers name may be Carmela, according to what I can see on the passport. Also, his last name is listed as both Rusfo and Russo- was this common in Italy?

Nicola Russo, son of Tommaso and Carmela Izzo

In the past a "double S" was very often written as Image, the name is Russo also in Ellis Island manifest, but it was misspelled Rufso when indexed

The last entry in the front page says "Di condizione ...Sarto", = Status (Occupation) Taylor
