Re: Italian Census records

There are a number of D'Angelo listings in the current Italian telephone directory for Casacanditella; see http://www.paginebianche.it/ricerca?qs=D%27Angelo&dv=Casacanditella+%28CH%29&l=en If I were you and had $10 or $15 to spare, I would take the time to write a one or two page letter expl...

Re: Italian Census records

It is not always easy; I had to try multiple ways before I found the street (but not specifically #141).

Re: Italian Census records

I haven't looked at the birth record, but just keep in mind that the address Marty cited is the place where the child was born and not necessarily the place where his parents lived. It would not have been unusual for a farmwoman to spend the last days or even weeks of her pregnancy at the home of a ...

Re: Agata (DelBonis) Fantozzi and the DelBonis surname in RI

I believe this is a passenger manifest for your Agata De Bonis and two children, Zelinda Fantozzi aged 5 and Americo Fantozzi aged 2 in May, 1905. Although they did not actually travel on this ship (they are lined out), the data should still be valid. They came from Guarcino which is about 60 miles ...

Re: Agata (DelBonis) Fantozzi and the DelBonis surname in RI

If that is your ancestor, using the information on that card you can order a copy of his naturalization documents for as little as $7.00 from the National Archives. His documents *should* clearly indicate the name under which he entered the United States in June, 1907. I have posted information befo...

Re: Child turns 18 after interview

Consulates appear to handle this entire subject of "adult" children in different ways. Which consulate are you applying at?

Re: Document Gathering

In Connecticut, it is generally faster, easier, and less expensive to work directly with the clerk's office of the town/city where the event occurred. Worst case, you can deal directly with the state department of health - http://www.ct.gov/dph/cwp/view.asp?a=3132&q=388130&dphNav=|46940| - e...

Re: Document Gathering

A great deal depends upon the source of the records you are seeking. For example, New York is notoriously difficult when it comes to any birth record other than your own and is just as tough with regards to marriage and death certificates.

So, from what state(s) do your required documents originate?

Re: GF's NYC birth certificate - Appeals Court

I'm glad to see the Appeals Court has some common sense. It never made any sense to me that documents such as a marriage certificate, military papers, death certificate were proof of when and where a deceased person was born, particularly if there are no living witnesses to attest to such a fact. P...

That's great news! It will be so much easier for you at San Francisco now that you don't have to deal with this issue.

Re: Wrong mother's maiden name on Baptismal Certificate

If you haven't already, you should definitely contact the church and request they verify the information which they copied to the baptismal certificate. Mistakes do happen and it is possible that one happened here. Then, the next option would be to see if you can get the church to correct the record...
