Surname "Dalaida"

Post by Matman » 08 Jun 2016, 01:40

Greetings all,

My family holds the story that we are descended from one "Augustina Delaida", born in Italy abt 1875. She was married to Natale Tripodi, born abt 1873. A US Census record corroborates her existence -- though the name in that record is spelled "Dalaida".

When I look for this surname (either spelling) in Italian Genealogy records, US immigration records, and other various online records, I can't find ANYONE with this name. In fact, I can't find anyone with this surname anywhere except for two people on Facebook from the Philippines. I'm starting to think there may be something strange going on with our story.

I wonder if anyone out there has some helpful thoughts.

You think that is the correct family?
And the marriage is abt right Natale?
Maybe Dalaida is referred to her mother maiden name...
just a suggestion...
