Torrazzo Biella Piemonte

Postby hollygianfrancesco » 16 Oct 2010, 12:34

Looking for surname Vecchio, Prisco Vecchio draft card says this is where he was from, no ship manifest found at ellis or ancestry.com or other information besides 1920 census. That say he immigrated in 1896 which would have been at 13 years old but no parents or census for 1900 or 1910 or 1930.
Nothing for wife Concetta Tierzo either. Suggestions?
Thanks

do you know if he ever lived in NJ? from the social security index-

VECCHIO, PRISCO 01 Nov 1883 Jul 1974 90 07465 (Wanaque, Passaic, NJ) (none specified) New York 055-03-2876

If this is him, you can send for his ss application which would give you his parents' names. It costs $27 with his ss #

Suanj, I think you've found him.

His natuturaization documents including a picture are on footnote which should verify your findings.

Valarie
Happy to hear that you finally found that birth record for which you have been searching for so long.

If I locate anything on a subscription site, I'll come "a-hollering." Thanks.

Thank you Valarie for footnote record; now we can be very sure that Prisco Vecchi ( right surname spell) was born in Taurasi ( Avellino province, Campania region) and not in Torrazzo ( Biella province, Piemonte region)!
The arrival date on arrival certificate matching with the ship's manifest!
Thanks,
hugs,
