Re: Looking for help on Genardo surname

Do you have the links for this record?? I just got his naturalization info in the mail. Contrary to what I had believed before, he came here in 1913 through Detroit. His info states he was born in "Musmali" Italy in 1894 and lived in Naples before coming to the US. Just so you know, the d...

Re: Town in Italy named Santa Chirico?

The world subscription is way too expensive, IMO. Here is a trick which I have used successfully for many years: go to http://www.ancestry.it/ (yes, the Italian website) and sign up there for only 8.65 euros PER YEAR (it says 9.95 euros but bills as 8.65 euros - I don't know why) or just 1 euro per ...

Re: Town in Italy named Santa Chirico?

Perhaps you mean San Chirico Nuovo, located in the Potenza province of Southern Italy.

Re: Proof of Name Change for woman after Marriage

Okay, can I ask then what is the reason for needing proof of name change?

Italian passports are always issued in the birth name, even for married women. This is true even for US citizens who obtain Italian citizenship.

PS: my initial post contained a bad link; I have since fixed it.

Re: Proof of Name Change for woman after Marriage

Is your mother deceased? You can order a copy of her SS-5 original application for social security card, but I have no idea whether that will come with proof of her married name as well as her maiden name. Since 1980-something, it has been necessary to obtain a social security number at birth; back ...

Re: Looking for help on Genardo surname

My grandmother's older brother, born in Sicily, was named Girolamo at birth. The English equivalent of this name is always given as Jerome, yet all of his U.S. paperwork has James as his name, and he was called Jimmy by the family. The Giacomo in our family was called Jake. So you really never know...

Re: Looking for help on Genardo surname

Julia, The naturalization records for the US District Court at Hammond, IN are held by the National Archives at Chicago. If you are in/near Chicago, you can simply walk in and view records for free. If not, well, I have found the National Archives researchers to be pretty easy to get along with and ...

Re: Looking for help on Genardo surname

On the card that you found, it has "date and port of arrival" blank. Will it be blank if I order through the National Archives? I can't promise anything but if you refer to the older thread I linked to earlier you will see that the law was quite clear regarding proof of arrival required f...

Re: Looking for help on Genardo surname

I am confident that you will find the $10 National Archives fee well worth it. You are very lucky that you know exactly where and when he naturalized; many people would kill for that information.

Re: Looking for help on Genardo surname

Is this your James? If so, consider spending $10 to get a copy of his naturalization records from the National Archives. These should include the name of the ship and date when he arrived in the US and the full name which he traveled under. Begin here https://eservices.archives.gov/orderonline/ Cli...
