Ok, thank you

So the self-addressed UNSTAMPED envelope is just for once they confirm they are sending me the documents ?
Just a courtesy to be included with our request - they probably won't use it :-)

Re: Please Help! Which one is the correct guy?

Yes, many missing records. You should write to the comune and ask for the marriage of Giovanni Abbenante and Giovannina De Felice. Give a span of about 1877 - 1881... They will allow for a 5 year span. The marriage will give your the parents of your Giovannni. (and possibly the grandfather :-) ) T.

Re: Please Help! Which one is the correct guy?

From the manifest lists (sailed and crossed out) in 1905 - it appears that Giovanni Abbenanti (52) and wife, Giovannina De Felice (49), had the following children: ~Giuseppe and Orlando (oldest sons?) who were already in USA (Derby, CT @ 44 Caroline St. or 25 Minor St. on the manifest) when the rest...

Re: Tessitore/Colella Family

As to Giuseppe's correct date of birth... you can also use his marriage act. To marry, the spouses had to produce their birth acts. The age on the marriage act would be accurate. EDIT TO ADD*** Here is the birth act of Pasqualina Antonia Colella [wife of Giuseppe Tessitore] in 1868 in Amorosi . (#52...

Thank you! Ok the only way I would find his actual birth is to find his birth record? Do these all translate the same as Archie’s aside from dates?
Yes, pretty much so.

Here is a guide to help you :-)

Just in case I haven't mentioned it before... you can write directly to the comune of Afragola to request the marriage of Angela Balsamo and Vincenzo Giacco in 1930 :-) Send no $$, but do send your photo ID and an email address at which you can be contacted about the possible cost of copying and mai...

Re: Customs House Ship Manifest

Yes, there is a notation of marriage in Afragola on 23 October 1930(?) or 1920... I cannot see it clearly - to Vincenzo Giacco. There are 24 listings for Giacco in the phone book in Afragola https://www.paginebianche.it/ricerca?qs=giacco&dv=Afragola+%28NA%29 The birth index for 1925 - 1940 is only o...
