Need to find Ascarafini comune

Postby trundo » 21 Jul 2010, 18:45

Can anyone tell me where Ascarafini is located in Sicily, Italy?

See attached manifest (line 29 - Guiseppe Polizzi) - this shows the last residence was in Ascarafini. But I can not find it.

Now a year or so later, his wife, son, and brother arrived and their last residence is very clear as Agira. Is this the same?


Thanks,


Tom

Do you think that Ascarafini is Alcara Li Fusi on the manifest?

Hi Tom,

The places of origin on ships manifests are frequently mis-spelled. I wouldn't waste any more time looking for Ascarafini if I were you.

There is a possibility that it might be Calatafimi - the same number of letters - and more likely to have been wrongly transcribed.

If Giuseppe became Naturalized in the US, that document will have the right place of his birth.

A census record might also show a different place of birth - but then they are also notoriously wrong.

Here is another question...

Per Giuseppe Polizzi's manifest 11/4/1903 he came over to the USA and stayed with a cousin Conforto Vincenzo in Cleveland, Ohio.

http://search.ancestry.com/iexec/Defaul ... 4007194923

Year: 1903; Microfilm serial: 15; Microfilm roll: T715_411; Line: 29; Page Number: 71.

In personal documentation from our Family Reunion it states that Giuseppe came to the USA and stayed with his sister whom was married to Charles Rundo.

Now Vincenzo Conforto's manifest 4/28/1903 -- 7 months before Giuseppe Polizzi arrived states he was joining his brother Giuseppe in Cleveland.

Was there a sister to Giuseppe Polizzi married to Charles Rundo in which he stayed there? Who is Vincenzo Conforto - a boarder staying at the Rundo home in Cleveland?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom

Thank you for the 1910 census find.

regarding the Giuseppe Polizzi staying with his sister who was married to Charles Rundo in Cleveland... Is Nicolina Rundo (maiden name Artino) the sister to Giuseppe???

I have found that the parents to Giuseppe Polizzi were:
Serafino Polizzi and Orazia (Grazia) Polizzi (maiden name is Lameri). Serafino was born in 1851 (baptised 1/1/1851 per baptismal record).
Can not find any other info regarding other children or Giuseppe's siblings.

Now Nicolina arrived in the USA 6/1905, Giuseppe arrived in 11/4/1903, so this can't be a sister. Could there be another sister????

The manifest states that he stayed with a cousin named Vencenzo Conforto in Cleveland. Can't figure out where Conforto is a cousin.???? Or a boarder at a house in Cleveland that had Giuseppe's sister and husband Charles Rundo living there.

Any help with this one.

Tom

abt:
Is Nicolina Rundo (maiden name Artino) the sister to Giuseppe???

I said not that... I found a probable Rundo in Cleveland, OH; I know not the maiden name of Nicolina Rundo wife of Calogero Rundo...


abt:
Serafino Polizzi and Orazia (Grazia) Polizzi (maiden name is Lameri). Serafino was born in 1851 (baptised 1/1/1851 per baptismal record).

If you have the baptisimal record, you have also the birthplace as a well the parish name... so what is Serafino Polizzi birthplace?

abt:
Can't figure out where Conforto is a cousin.????
But Giuseppe Polizzi declared that joining at Vincenzo Conforto cousin, so it must be true... so they was cousin in some way...

in 1912 the family again in USA, final destination Cleveland, OH, joining at Carmelo Conforto brother:

pag 2

http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0014

pratically as I can understand by this records, Vincenzo/James Conforto married at a Rundo, and she was related at Calogero/Charles Rundo that was married at a Polizzi...

by Calogero Rundo arrival:
First Name: Cologero
Last Name: Rundo
Ethnicity: Agira, Italian
Last Place of Residence: Catania
Date of Arrival: Nov 04, 1903
Age at Arrival: 25y Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ship of Travel: Patria (1882)
Port of Departure: Naples
Manifest Line Number: 0009


http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0009

joining at Vincenzo Conforto brother in law in Cleveland, OH; last residence Agira town, by death record the birth place was Alcara ( Alcara Li Fusi) so also for your Giuseppe Polizzi the last residence Ascarafini
most probably means Alcara Li Fusi... Vincenzo Conforto was no the cousin really, but the brother in law of Giuseppe's brother in law....

Hi suanj,

Serafino Polizzi's baptismal record is here...
http://italiangenealogy.tardio.com/Foru ... 17598.html

It didn't state the commune, but I believe it was Agira, Sicily, Italy.

Regarding Nicolina, her maiden name is Artino. And per the 1910 Census, Calogero Rundo was married twice. Nicolina would be the second wife.

James John Rundo was born in Italy (Alcara Li Fusi - per James Rundo's naturalization papers) and the parents are Calogero Rundo and Ara

see other forum: http://italiangenealogy.tardio.com/Foru ... 17743.html

Also a marriage between Calogero Rundo and Nicoletta Artino in 1906
Groom's Name: Calagera Runda
Groom's Birth Date: 1878
Groom's Birthplace: Italy
Groom's Age: 28

Bride's Name: Nicoletta Artino
Bride's Birth Date: 1881
Bride's Birthplace: Italy
Bride's Age: 25
Marriage Date: 29 Nov 1906
Marriage Place: Cuyahoga County, Ohio

Groom's Father's Name: Vincengo Runda (prob Vincenzo Rundo)
Groom's Mother's Name: Anna Sattnelo (prob Anna Satullo)

Bride's Father's Name: Antonio Artino
Bride's Mother's Name: Anna Barone

Groom's Marital Status: Single
Bride's Marital Status: Single

System Origin: Ohio-VR
Source Film Number: 0886219

So the question is, is Grazia Polizzi a sister to Giuseppe Polizzi?
Also what happened to Grazia Polizzi? There is indications that she came over to the USA in 1905.

why Grazia Polizzi joining at Nicola Rundo?? no Calogero? it is strange....
however Giuseppe Polizzi last residence was Alcara Li Fusi, no doubts..
if he was born here, or in Agira or in S. Agata, we cannot know ... but Ascarafini really is: Alcaralifusi ( Alcara li Fusi)
regards,
