Elusive Ship/Naturalization Information

My Great Grandfather, Luigi Criscillo, came to the US through New York in 1890. He's from Pietradefusi. His Father was Nicolo Criscillo, his Mother Concetta Petrillo. He was born May 27, 1863. I have his Italian birth record. I have not been able to find him on a ship manifest, or any naturalization...

Re: Issues finding city Great Grandfather is from...

I do have some family information that he had a brother who lived in Philadelphia. I have no idea what his first name is however. When I search, I find a Joseph Criscillo in Philadelphia. Is that a possible lead?

Re: Issues finding city Great Grandfather is from...

From family history, they used to tease Nick because the spelling of his last name changed. They would call him "Criscillo" in a taunting way at school, etc. I've also seen several documents with Criscillo early on such as Luigi's Marriage Record, his children's Baptismal records, etc.

Thanks, Tessa.

I do have a copy. That's where his parents names came from :) I just wish it had a city of birth on it :)

Issues finding city Great Grandfather is from...

I posted here a couple of years ago (time files) Unfortunately, I'm no closer to finding my family's city of origin. I'm hoping you can give me some ideas. My Great Grandfather was Luigi Criscillo. I know from living family members that we are from Caserta, but I know that doesn't necessarily mean t...

Re: Great Grandfather's Birth Town/Caserta Province

I took 4 years of Spanish in school, and I'm a little familar with the language. I do have a Facebook account. I could give it a try. My Great Grandmother's family is from Saviano. I'm going to have to write for her birth record though as microfilm isn't that recent. She has 5 siblings with various ...

Re: Great Grandfather's Birth Town/Caserta Province

So, at this point how do I find my Great Grandfather's Birth town? Two of his Grandchildren (in their 70s and 80s) have both said the family is from Caserta. I've pulled microfilm from 1850 to 1870 in both Caserta and Caserta Vecchia with no luck. I cannot seem to locate his manifest (1890) or his n...

Re: Great Grandfather's Birth Town/Caserta Province

I spent a lot of time looking at microfilm from 1870 only to find out I had the wrong birth year when I saw the gravestone at the cemetary. It was so frustrating when I found out it was 1863... :)
