Postby DebiHarbuck » 03 Aug 2012, 04:40

Can anyone puzzle out the name of the town given as the "place of birth" on this draft card for Nicola Vitale?

Hi I believe that the birth place is TEANA, Potenza province, Basilicata region; I found the WWII record:

U.S. World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942 about Nicholas Vitale
Name: Nicholas Vitale
Birth Date: 5 Mar 1892
Birth Place: Potenza, Italy
Residence: Rich, New York
Race: White
wife Filomena, and I am sure that is the same person that moved from NY to NJ

and if my search is right the full name was VITALE Francesco Nicola born in Teana on 4 March 1891 son of Giuseppe age 28 farmer and of Marianna Mingo
birth act:

That's them, Suanj! Thank you!!

These names are new to me, as I am helping my cousin with her husband's tree. They are planning a trip to Italy for their 50th wedding anniversary in the spring and I am trying to nail down places for them. This is marvelous...thanks again!! :)

Funny...I had made a note to come back after work today and ask you "who went to NJ? I thought they went to Staten Island! :) "

Thank you, again! I am about to dive into the records from Teana. I am sure I will be pestering you again later. :)
