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:
arrival: Mingo Marianna ( or Di Mingo Marianna) child Francesco Vitale and child Maria Saveria Vitale, joining at husband Giuseppe Vitale in New York
First Name: Francesco Last Name: Vitale Ethnicity: Italy, Italian South Last Place of Residence: Leona* (*TEANA) Date of Arrival: Nov 18, 1904 Age at Arrival: 13y Gender: M Marital Status: S Ship of Travel: Prinz Adalbert Port of Departure: Naples Manifest Line Number: 0029
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!!
