Hi Teresa,

so, do you think this Joseph DiGeronimo could be your husband's grand-father?
This Joseph/Giuseppe was married but before 1923 as you can see in the census image...
First son Frank was 19 years old, Joseph declared he got married at the age of 23 so more or less in 1907....

Here is his birth date:

Born: 27 Oct 1884
Died: Jun 1967
State (Year) SSN issued: New Jersey (1952-1954)

This matches with the military Enlistment for the second World War....

Are these the death dates for you husband's father?

Hi Laura, How kind of you to help me with this information. Are you a DiGeronimo?
Yes, Guiseppe (Joseph) DiGeronimo IS my husband's grandfather. He remembers being at that house on Mercer St. in Jersey City. He remembers his grandfather well. This census that lists a son Joseph age 9 is my husband's father!
This is very interesting and helpful.
How do I get documentation on births, marriages and deaths of the DiGeronimo family from Santomenna? Do you know of a contact or an address?
Thank you
Theresa

Hi Theresa! :D

no.. I'm not a Di Geronimo, I'm italian, I live in the north of Italy... I'm a member of this forum and I love to help people searching for their italian roots...
So, I helped Anac finding traces of her relatives in the U.S.

I can tell you that the address of the Comune of Santomenna for your documents's requestes is:

Comune di Santomenna
Stato Civile
Via Convento

84020 SANTOMENNA SA
ITALY

But, as I'm not expert about Italian Citizenship request I can suggest you to open another post in this section of the forum:

http://italiangenealogy.tardio.com/Foru ... m/f=4.html

because I don't know which kind of certificates do you need for the citizenship.... and sure there are many other posters able to help you...

Laura,
You have been very helpful. You helped Ana find me and I am married to her cousin! Thank you for this address; it is exactly what I need to get this going. If I write in English asking for birht, marriage and death certificates, will they respond? Or do I have to write in Italian?
I will also look into the internet link you suggested.
It is very kind of you to reach out and help people searching their past.
Theresa

Aca te copio la entrada al pais de mi papá, que también se llamaba Felice, que me mandaron del Museo de la Inmigración en Argentina:

Le enviamos la informacion que hemos encontrado

APELLIDO DI GERONIMO
NOMBRE FELICE
EDAD 8 AÑOS
ESTADO CIVIL SOLTERO
NACIONALIDAD ITALIANA
PROFESION DESCONOCIDA
RELIGION CATOLICA
BUQUE CONTE GRANDE
PROCEDENCIA NAPOLES
FECHA ARRIBO 12/01/1935
NACIDO EN SALERNO


Con esta persona el mismo dia, el mismo barco, el mismo puerto de
procedencia, nacidos en el mismo lugar, la misma nacionalidad y religion,
llegaron:

DI GERONIMO, Francesco, de 10 años de edad, estado civil soltero, profesion
desconocida
DI GERONIMO, Maria, de 9 años de edad, estado civil soltero, profesion
desconocida (yo pienso que es la hermana mayor de felice, maría giuseppa)
DI GERONIMO, Maria, de 4 años de edad, estado civil soltera, profesion
desconocida
DI GERONIMO, Rosa Maria de,de 38 años de edad, estado civil casada,profesion
casera

Mi abuela se llamaba ANNA ROSA DI NICOLA, no pude encontrar la entrada al país de ella, y tampoco de FRANCESCO.

Yo pienso que mi abuelo Francesco vino solo a Argentina después del año 1926, ya que mi papá (Felice) nació el 21 de junio de 1926 en Santomenna,
y después nacieron en Argentina dos hijos más, Angel que le decían Donato, (y era menor unos 9 o 10 años que Felice) y despues nació Maria Rosa. Espero no confundirte, esos son mis tíos.
Después fallece mi abuela (anna rosa) y mi abuelo (franceso) se volvería a Italia?

Hola Ana!!

Soy nueva en el foro, encontre tu post buscando sobre la familia de mi mama, Di Geronimo, para armar el arbol genealogico.

Creo con toda seguridad que nuestras familias estan conectadas. Te comento, que mi abuelo Felix Di Geronimo (nacido en Salerno, Italia alrededor de 1926) llego a Argentina cuando tenia apenas 8 años. Sus hermanos y hermanas, segun mi mamá son: Angel Donato (el menor), Ana Rosa y María Josefa (que aun vive, en Lanus, Buenos Aires). En Argentina, mi abuelo, Felice se caso con Juana Burgueño y tuvieron 3 hijos. Hubo un tiempo que mi abuelo se fue de la casa y tuvo hijos con otra mujer, entre los cuales seguro estas vos :). Por eso asumo que vos y mi mama serían hermanastras :O

Sobre si tu abuelo (que seria mi bisauelo) Francesco se volvio a Italia o no, pregunte a mi abuela, y me conto que solo unos dias antes de que mi abuela se casara con tu papa, Francesco, tu abuelo, y mi bisabuelo, murio apuñalado en Lanus al intentar separar a unos hombres que peleaban. Tambien me aseguro que tu bisabuelo, Felice, no dejo nunca Italia y que vivio hasta los 105 años, por eso me marean mucho las conexiones con New Jersey... Sí se que uno de los tíos de tu papa, Francesco creo, vive en USA y que otro que se llamaba Pepino fallecio hace unos 10 años y vivia aca en Argentina.

Eso es lo que me han contado, mucho no se.

Espero haber podido aclararte alguna duda...

Naty

Pd: Mi abuelo fallecio hace ya muchos años, y lamentablemente, ya que no mantengo contacto con mis tios abuelos, los unicos registros que tengo son los que sabe mi querida abuela
