Re: Missing part of naturalization

Here's a Hail Mary suggestion for you to try. A few years back I had visited the NYC archives at 31 Chambers St in Manhattan. Immigration records were on the 7th floor, the domain of Joe Van Nostrandt; his office phone is/was 646 386 5395. I found him to be extremely knowledgable about the holdings ...

Re: Need help locating info on my great-grandfather

I agree with Pippo - the more information on relatives, etc. that you can provide, the easier it is to assist you. The guy in this Declaration document is the same one that Pippo found in the 1930 census: https://i.postimg.cc/1zygXd6h/Antonino-Pizzuto-Declaration-1922.png and here is his immigration...

Re: Obituary

The New York (City) Public Library has Hartford Courant 1764-1988 in its "articles & database" holdings. These are available remotely (from home), with a library card (account). It is not necessary to be a NY City resident to get a card, but it seems it's only available to NY State res...

Re: Looking for Eastern European village

MKay, I have found this book helpful in understanding the geography of eastern Europe, including presentations of spelling variations. It was created specifically as an aid for Jewish family history, but geography is geography. One limitation is that if a town did not have a significant Jewish popul...

Re: Brooklyn

Dear Lettie,

Your post is somewhat lost here. It is better to start a brand new thread for this topic, that way it will get more focused attention.

Re: Palermo birth records

Robert, I believe that uf1 is an abbreviation of Ufficio #1; ufficio = office. My knowledge of Palermo geography/genealogy is limited, but I think that there were several offices in Palermo's core; so, in a sense it is a geographic location. Perhaps if you post a specific record or search it will be...

Re: Graziano troubles in Palermo

MMogno I just realized that I had left this thread hanging, so let me go for some degree of closure. I had already scoured the Palermo records for the Graziano lineages, including the 3 marriages you refer to here. I now interpret your suggestion (which is appreciated) as a nudge to go to the Proces...

Re: Palermo records

There have indeed been threads discussing and making available Tornabene's work (including notice of his 2016 death, a great loss). While his original source material (the indexes) is all available from the Antenati site, he processed and enhanced the Palermo marriage indexes into Excel files, which...

Re: read and print a document

Perhaps these images will help; I hope I got the linkages right, I'll check one when the post goes up. They vary in legibility, I've seen worse! Was there another doc? I'd rather avoid doing an entire allegati. Image availability to examine on a screen is not the same as for printing; I can't help m...

Seek assistance translating English to Italian

Hello, I hope to send a message to the scholar Orazio Cancila, who is from my ancestors' home town of Castelbuono. This is a first contact for him. Thank you very much!! Here is my message: Professor Cancila,   Please forgive that I do not know the Italian language, and must rely on translations of ...
