Suanj:

WOW-Thank you for the WW1 & WW2 Draft cards.
My cousin never mentioned his dad had filled these out.
Does anyone know if this was a mandatory thing for
all male Americans? My uncle did not serve in either war.
As I mentioned, Uncle Pietro’s younger sons enlisted
during WW2. BTW: All Pietro’s brothers became US citizens –
expect for Pietro. I know this for a fact because I went to
the Bronx court house and obtained copies of the petitions.
My cousin Joe also stated his dad never became a US citizen.
(Always thought it was weird since he never
wanted to go back to Sicily.)


Yes was for all men in USA; but it is just a enlistment, they no made really the wars...

As far as finding my aunt’s obituary – I think it highly unlikely.
I’m sure my cousins handled their mother’s death the same
way mine did for our parents. We contacted the family
members and friends of our parents personally. We didn’t
have their deaths printed in the papers. Also, requested the
hospital not give out this news to whatever news organizations
they dealt with.


In effects I searched in old newspapers and I no found the obituary.....
the obits are a excellent way for to find more infos abt a people....

With all the information you have provide, my next
action will be to request my uncle’s and aunt’s marriage certificate.
I don’t think being a great niece will allow me to request their death
certificates, but I can now ask for Aunt Mary’s parents death
certificates thanks to you!


It is a good idea!

A new question for you:

My grandfather and his brothers (Pietro included) owned an
ice business called Randazzo's. It was
located at 812 (I think that's the number. I know
it was eight hundred and...) Jackson Avenue, Bronx,
NY. Would there be a record for this business? If so, would the same apply for Pasquale Marano's bar in
New Rochelle?

I searched abt that, but no luck....

However I believe that the Maranos coming from some commune of Avellino province, (no far from Napoli and in the same region)... but it is just a my idea....
all the best,
suanj

suanj: Thank you so much for your insight. I just found the note book
I wrote in when I took down the Marano information from my cousin
before he died in 2007. I know I misspelled the name of the town:
SAN SAVINE. I spelled it the way my cousin pronounced it to me.
Major mistake!!

I just checked the site: http://www.italia.indettaglio.it/eng/co ... gnomi.html
for towns in the Campania region. Also towns in the Avellino
province on: http://en.comuni-italiani.it/064/

There is not a town listed. (Of course, my mistake in not
asking my cousin to spell it for me is now coming back
to haunt me.)

Is it possible that the town name changed after WW2?

http://www.italyworldclub.com/8000_italian_communes/

This website also contains a list of Italian towns which may or may not be more complete than the other two websites you've already checked.

There are also a number of frazioni with the name of San Savino, but none are in the Campania region or in the province of Avellino.

maestra36: Thank you for the link.

Your post prompted me to search the Naples province and
I found the city of Saviano. Perhaps, my cousin was incorrect
in placing the word "San" in front of it? So, out of curiosity
I typed the name Marano on http://www.paginebianche.it.
Guess what? Low and behold:

Marano Pasquale
80039 Saviano (NA)
Via Degli Orti, 1

Hopefully you have found the correct town. It would be nice though to have a record that confirms that you are in right place.

Yes - you are both correct. It could be any of these 3 towns
(Saviano, Serino, or San Michele di Serino) - or none.

Once I receive the death certificates (for Pasquale and
Josephine) and/or marriage certificate of my uncle
I will let you know.

Thanks everyone for your help and direction!

MARANO CUEROSO* 39 M 20 Apr 1893 SERINO
Port of Departure: Napoli
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
