Re: Ancestors of Michael Chudkosky and his 2 wives

The first newspaper article was not him. He was already dead*, plus if he had been alive, he would have been 65 years old. That patrolman was 38. Unfortunately on the baseball story, I do not know if Walter married and had children. He would have been 35 years old in 1960. * Mike was born in 1897. ...

Re: Baffled by middle name: Adamagio

Reading it more closely and looking at possible names, I see that it is actually Adamanzio. Not an unheard of name, but certainly very rare! I am not familiar with Adamanzio either. :-) Without seeing the record, which you state is very clear, I can not be certain... but could you be seeing "ad Ama...

Re: Ancestors of Michael Chudkosky and his 2 wives

Here is a newspaper article from 1963 in the Bronx regarding Walter Chudkosky, father of 6. He was a patrolman of 11 years. It appears he was involved in a hit-and-run. http://fultonhistory.com/highlighter/highlight-for-xml?altUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fultonhistory.com%2FNewspaper%252024%2FNew%2520York%...

Nice finds, Pippo! Here are the translations through page 8. Page 9 is quite lengthy and I did not have enough time. There also follows a page 10 :-) Cover sheet of allegati folder - dated 27 February 1840 Instruments of the solemn promise of marriage between Domenico Mazza and Rafaela Murcogliano ...

Re: Isidoro Bergamo

The surname Bergamo is found throughout the Veneto region
http://italia.indettaglio.it/eng/cognom ... eneto.html

Can you give us some additional details about Isidoro to help us narrow it down?
Did he emigrate? If yes, to where?
Did he marry? Where and when?

Re: Compiere?

Most likely what you are seeing is "campiere" - fieldworker.

Always best to post the record if you can :-)

Re: Translation of Vittoria Frezza death record

Victoria died on 30 March 1811 at home. She was 69yo, a laborer, the daughter of Marco Frezza.

After Vittoria it looks like "di Duca" rather than Fusco...but I am not certain.

Re: Looking for Birth Record from Vicari, Italy

This will need to be investigated. The marriage notification record you provided has Simone's mother as Antonina Calandra. The death act (which is not as reliable) lists his mother as Antonia Nicosia. Obtaining Simone Agozzino's birth act (about 1814-5) should clear up the discrepancy. In my opinion...

Re: Angelo Raffaele Bilancia's permission to marry from his mother

No need, Jackie :-)

Livio :-D provided the link to the record. The second page is available at that link.

It just states that she gives her consent that Angelo Raffaele marry Gaetana D'Agosto.
It then provides the names of the witnesses to the record.

Re: Looking for Birth Record from Vicari, Italy

Can you find out who Giuseppe Agozzino's (married to Antonina Levatino) mother and father's names? Because I don't see how Pietro fits in my family tree yet.. From the marriage (1870) of Giuseppe Agozzino and Antonina Levatino posted above... Giuseppe was the 30yo son of deceased (both) Simone [Ago...
