It is my intention to post the membership at forums and sites in NYC, especially around Italian Harlem. I have already sent all the docs to the webmaster at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church which I linked in an earlier post in this topic. He said none of the names were familiar to him.
Another site specific to NYC is The Italian-American Website of New York
Be prepared for the Italian music that plays when the page opens. It has a section on famous Italians and many links. He also put in links for other ethnic groups, including Chinese Culture, American Jewish Archives, Irish, Colombian, Famous Scottish -- Emmy, take note, Brazil - a virtual Tour, German, African American Culture. The Famous Italian part is interesting.
Another site that has Databases of NYC records is Italian Genealogy Group
I found a transcribed copy of Jacob Riis' book How The Other Half Lives
at Jacob Riis HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES
Some other photos from the past...
This is the same wedding couple, my great aunt and my adopted mom's parents. The couple behind them are her Aunt Anna and Uncle Dom DeFabion. Anna is Maria Concetta Nervino in the 1896 Passport. The young girl on the left is her Aunt Millie (Camilla). My mom says that the flowers on her mother's veil were wax. I am curious about the ferns that some of the girls are wearing.
This is the Netti wedding; the bride was a family friend Anna is almost smiling on the right, Millie in front of her and my mom's father Frank (Raffaele) Nervina the man on the left.
More as I can upload them.
