I couldn't find a manifest, except the one of a 22 year old. but I'm not sure if this is your ancestor's naturalization papers or not, but this list birth as 1892.

Re: another translation

I was just looking at Michele's brother, his birth cert. He was born in 1816 and it says Gianovario is 33, which makes him 22 at Michele's birth in 1806. I guess until I find a birth record his age will be suspect.

Re: another translation

Erudita, It is confusing..The death record is in Michele's marriage packet. So this must be his father. But at 60 in 1850 means he was only 16 at Micheles birth. But marriage would put him almost 30 at time of his birth. I'm sure its the same person, maybe he looked good for his age LOL. The name di...

Re: Married at 12 years old

I have recently found out my great aunt was only 13 when she married. And that was here in the US, in 1892.

Re: Meaning of transcription

this is the front of the picture. I think the her appearance looks like late 1890 or even early 1900. But she does look young in this pic.

Meaning of transcription

This is on the back of a photo I have, a young woman. Can anyone explain what it is telling me.. I see her name, and apparently she is the child of Gaetano. But the date does not make sense. Is it a death date? It can't be a birth date, the woman looks to be in her late teens, early twenties. Please...

Re: In need of a history lesson

Tessa,

I had heard this before. And I wondered if that was the case. As far as I can tell he does not go back to Italy for another 5 or 6 years and then brings family over. I wasn't sure what conflicts were going on at that time. And this could be the very reason he goes to France.
