Cannot find anything on my grandfather, Louis Garofano, b. 3/Nov/1893 in Cervinara (most likely). Father was Tommaso Garo/afano, b. 1868, m. Antoinetta Ferrari (1871) in 1892. They lived in Rutland, VT, where Tommaso is shown in a census as living with Louis/Luigi. Louis/Luigi married Amelia Duncan in 1917. From there, I find no leads for him or Tommaso.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Tommaso Garofano/Carofano/Garafano 1928 Vermont Death Certificate

Birthdate--19 MR 1858
Father-Phillip (Filippo)

Index card for groom of marriage of Luigi to Amelia, showing Luigi's parents' names.
A bit of speculation on my part--Tommaso's wife was Antonia Fierro

Thanks, Biff,

I am confused about birth dates because Luigi's SS app/card lists it as November, I think. Which is more reliable, SS or death certificate? His SS# was 009-26-5903.

Also, you offered to help me draft a letter requesting birth/marriage records. I had one done, but my daughter, who knows some Italian, said there were errors. Could you write me a format letter where I insert the names/dates?

Have some info on Tommaso's wife. She is listed as Antoinette Ferrari in most I've seen and even found her birth date as 1871. I did see her listed as Ferro/Ferria.

I am experiencing severe migraines, so maybe I am making this more difficult than it is. Still....too many variations in the different documents I've seen.

I can send via email what I have for a letter (this one was for Melito di Napoli) for Nicola and Giovachino, since I saw that as their residence in a document. I will print out all the documents I feel are related and highlight the consistent information so I can get this straightened out in my mind.

Glad you are back.

Jane
