Pasquale Angelicola (not from Connecticut)

Hi everyone! I have hit a wall. My great grandfather was Pasquale (Patsy) Angelicola, born in Celenza Valfortore in 1891. He married Caterina D'Attellis in 1912 and lived most of his life in New York. He is not the same Pasquale Angelicola who was from Connecticut, but that Pasquale has the same nam...

Re: Italian Red-Heads

I remember doing research on this way back. Italy has been conquered and settled time and time again. The Normans, who are well known for their red hair, settled in many areas of Italy we would never think of. My family still shows their red hair to this day. :lol:

Re: Maria (Silla) Angelini

Yes, many girls were given two names, the first of which was Maria in honor of the Blessed Virgin; and they would be known by their second given name, in this case Celia. I believe that the "Silla" on the birth act for Ferdinando was a misspelling by a clerk writing a phonetic spelling of...

Re: Maria (Silla) Angelini

This is the main record I found of her name being Maria Silla Angelina (Angelini). It's the birth certificate of Ferdinando. https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:27Y6-G23?from=lynx1&treeref=LT3G-FGN Shortly after, she regularly goes by Celia instead of Maria in all of the US census records. I...

Maria (Silla) Angelini

Hi everybody! I always seem to have the most obscure ancestors who enjoyed changing their names, and in true Italian character never cared for laws regarding their legal name. :? So basically I am looking for a birth certificate or something to prove the existence of Maria Silla Angelini born 1883, ...

Re: Anybody else mixed with another ethnicity?

Mainly Italian but I do have French with some German and Blackfoot Indian, but nothing significant culture wise. My father is half Italian and my mother is full Italian so any other culture is drained out. ;)

Re: Italian citizenship from unwed mother?

It would transmit to her children as far as I know, but it would not go onto her boyfriend. I would still make sure by emailing your nearest Consol.

Re: How can you tell the difference between people with the same name and when they came over?

You can usually distinct a person based on whether their spouse and sibling were with them at their specific destination or date. Another easy answer is the date of when an event happened. If your ancestor immigrated when he 20 in 1900 then his birth certificate will be from around 1880. Dates are n...

Re: Surname Meanings- What do your Surnames Mean?

ROTFL! Who knows, your ancestors may personality really gave you meaning to their names. I need to check out that website. Your surnames are really interesting and I've never heard of them.

Thank you Tessa for the links!
