Re: Trying to find out more about my great-grandfather Nick Gentile

Worth a try. It still may be necessary to find other "proof." In my opinion, the photo on the naturalization record is the same man you posted in the formal pose if you zoom in. *** Is the Mayfield Rd. address familiar? Was your GGF a merchant? What about his signature? Do you have somethi...

Re: Trying to find out more about my great-grandfather Nick Gentile

I think you need more verification/connections. Perhaps look for the death of Maria Angelica Cappello, and the marriage with Josephine (Giuseppa?) Gugliotta, mentioning that he is a widower? Do you have arrival manifest or naturalization records for Nicolo? EDIT TO ADD: This should clarify!!! Here i...

Re: Barcellona, Messina - does it still exist?

Sometimes the person recording the information only heard/understood the first part, and so just left off the rest of the place name. You can search for your grandfather's birth act (or we can do it for you if you provide some dates) in Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto at the Family Search website. You wil...

Re: Merchant seaman drowned off Reggio Calabria in 1914

The death act that mmogno posted is for G. F. Purcell, that is true. But your relative's name would be Giuseppe, which is the English form of Joseph. He was most likely Giuseppe Francesco (Joseph Francis) Purcell. The above record which is dated 23 October 1914, states that the deceased, G. F. Purce...

Re: Profession and Address for Ignazio Biundo

The problem here is that civil registrations that are available online only extend through 1902. Even among the records available, there are several missing years. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-L97B-NSCW?i=1675&wc=MCTM-DTG%3A351055601%2C352201901%2C352203601&cc=2051639 I b...
