LOOKING FOR LUIGI BARLETTA

Postby soniatp » 18 Jan 2011, 01:22

My great grandfather Luigi Barletta was born in 1886 and lived in Rofrano, Salerno in Italy. He arrived in New York on the 29th March 1913 at the age of 27 years, leaving behind his wife Antonia Grosso and three children. Once settled he was supposed to bring them over but within a few months of his arrival his family never heard from him again. According to the NY Passenger List, he met up with his cousin Raffaile Cafasso who lived in Skillman Avenue Brooklyn. The New York Passenger List is the only information I could find. Any other information will be greatly appreciated.

Hello soniatp! and welcome :-)

We'd be happy to help you search for information about Luigi Barletta, but you might want to re-post your inquiry to the "Italian Genealogy" section of this forum where more research volunteers will see it. This forum is primarily language and translations... :-)

This census lists him as NA which means Naturalized - maybe we can locate naturalization papers. However, sometimes immigrants listed themselves as naturalizated, when in fact, they had only begun the process.

At this site: www.italiangen.org

Listed in the NYC marriage index is a Luigi Barletta. Since it is an index, there is not further information about this person. Only way to learn age, place of birth, parents' names, etc. would be to request the record from NYC Vital records. Bride's name is not listed...

Barletta Luigi Jun 16 1924 Kings 7853

To request from NYC Vital records, using the certificate number (7853) and borough (Kings)...

Tessa already mentioned www.italiangen.org NYC marriages of Luigi Barletta on 16-June-1924. Bride info unknown.

Also, there was a Louis Barletta who married on 19-Oct-1912 to Madeline Yack in Manhattan.

There are many Barletta surnames listed on this website. It will probably be worth your while to check it out.

Hey Biff! Nice find :-)

Immigration date is correct - so good possibility
Interesting that he is listed as "AL"

A Draft card would help ALOT! :-D

Hi, suanj!

The 1930 census you found is the same as the one I posted. Link for mine is working okay for me.

Best,
