Rapallo Genoa Italy - Gardella

Postby vanessakennedy » 30 Apr 2010, 13:58

I am on a quest to track my ancestors. How can get my great great grandfathers birth certificate so I can continue my family tree. All I know is his name is Eugene Gardella he was born 7-10-1884 and he was from Genoa Town of Rapallo in Italy. I know his parents owned a mushroom farm but after they died it was sold. Can someone give me any suggestions?

Hello! :-)

Gardella is a surname of NEIRONE, a village 10 Km far from Rapallo, Italy
Maurizio


In addition to the address Livio provided for the town hall in Rapallo, here is the address for the comune of Neirone. Why not write to both? :-)

Via Neirone Centro, 16

I know not if this is the correct record of your ancestor but seeming of yes:

wife Laura....

you can see that the birthdate is a bit different of the birthdate that you provided...

however this record must be the immigration:

in the genealogic tree on ancestry,com abd your Eugene:
Eugene Gardella

Birth 10 July 1884
in Genova, Town of Rapallo, Italy


Death 15 Apr 1939

married at Laura Torrone...
well I searched in Rapallo birth in 1884 and nobody Eugenio (in italian) Gardella was born....

and because in the genealogic tree, the 1920 census:
1920 United States Federal Census about Eugene Gardella

the home address is the same in WWI draft registration card...


so the WWI draft Registration card is abt your Eugenio Gardella..

so most probably he was born in 1882 really, and not in 1884; also he declared on WWI draft registration card that was born the 29 July and not the 10 July.. the problem is to understand if he was born in Neirone or Rapallo...
I searched in Neirone births and in effects was born the 29 July 1882: Eugenio Gardella son of Andrea Gardella and Maria Corsiglia

the father first name matching with first name of Eugene oldest son...

Suanj Valarie Tessa

I really appreciate the information you found for me.....how can I find more information? How can I go further. I saw on the Att di Nascita that there were two people present for the birth of my ggggfather. Is it possible for me to search Maria Corsiglia or Andrea Gardella......Giuseppe Torrone or Sofia Berna???
