Re: di Ino surname or abbreviation?

And, FWIW, there actually are a small number of Ino's in Italy today - http://www.paginebianche.it/ricerca?qs=Ino&dv=

If there are/were Ino's, it is entirely possible/probable that there were Di Ino's as well.

Re: Marriage on the Ship

Can you tell us more about Luigi and Anna? Year of birth? Year of immigration? Where they lived in the US? There are more than 2,200 Scognamiglio's listed in the current Italian telephone directory and just 2 Scognamillio's. I leave it to you to identify the correct spelling. :) http://www.paginebia...

Re: di Ino surname or abbreviation?

Odoven may not be an Italian name, but there are at least three of them listed in the current Italian telephone directory: http://www.paginebianche.it/ricerca?qs=odeven&dv= As this map shows, they are quite spread out: http://www.gens.info/italia/it/turismo-viaggi-e-tradizioni-italia?t=cognomi&a...

Re: How can I find my ancestors homes?

In the US, local libraries are often a good source for this type of information; You might want to give that a try. Possibly your best source of info would be one of the Andreoni's currently residing in the area. See http://www.paginebianche.it/ricerca?qs=andreoni&dv=vorno Consider writing a let...

Re: Incorrect birth date on Birth Certificate Question

Thankfully, you have plenty of time to resolve this issue. Assuming that you are referring to an Italian birth record, do you know with certainty that the other names listed (parents of the child) are correct? Do you know with certainty that the birthplace is correct? It is possible that you simply ...

Re: 1800s in italy

Yes, Ufficio di Stato Civile is the office you want to communicate with. As with parishes, your results will vary. The comune of my paternal grandparents never responds to requests whereas the comune of my maternal grandparents has been extremely helpful in providing birth/marriage/death documents f...

Re: passports

If your ancestor became a naturalized US citizen, his Declaration of Intent will normally include a photo as will the Certificate of Naturalization. If your ancestor naturalized and eventually obtained a US passport, his passport application (which will also include a photograph) should be available...

Did you listen to http://www.forvo.com/search/bellotti/ ? It sounds very similar to your bih-lah-tea with the exception of more like "bell" than "bih" for the first syllable however that may be your ears or the person speaking that makes the difference. Can you explain a bit bett...

Re: Unsure of surname spelling. What surnames sound like thi

It could be either; you would have to hear it properly pronounced by an Italian to have some certainty, but the latter would likely be more of Bee-lot-tee. Current name distribution within Italy is - Bellotti: http://www.gens.info/italia/it/turismo-viaggi-e-tradizioni-italia?cognome=bellotti&x=0...

Re: How check mother has Italian citizenship w/ comune di pa

If your mother's birth was registered by a parent then she'd have a birth cert in the comune, even if she was not born in Italy... However, to the best of my knowledge... In earlier years, the "books" for each year - birth, marriage, death - were closed at the end of the year and any even...

Re: Enfusse surname

Sissyann, Most definitely, please look into obtaining naturalization documents as I described in an earlier post. This is often the best place to find change of surname documented. Start with the National Archives; their searches are very fast (often less than 2 or 3 weeks) and they do not charge at...

Re: Enfusse surname

Sissyann, perhaps if you tell us everything you do know about John and his wives we might have better luck tracking them down.
