Need Help....my son is engaged and will soon marry a lovely young lady. For their honeymoon he has planned to take her to Southern Italy. He would love to be able to share her family history and maybe even a relative. All she knew was her Great-Grandfathers name and we have added a little more information from Ellis Island records and Naturalization Records. ANY...ANY...HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. Since my husband and I are paying for the honeymoon I cannot afford to pay for a researcher in Italy. This is what we know: Her Great-Grandfathers name was Mishe Domenico Moscatello...from Geraco, Italy...arrives 1 June 1912 (age 19) at Ellis Island. According to Ellis Island records his fathers name was Vincenso. We also have found Vincenzo Muscatello (b. abt. 1867 in Locri)was married Caterina Scarfo. Mishe Domenico Muscatello married Maude Eliz King in Sullivan, TN on MArch 21, 1922. He worked the coal mines of WV and moved to Martinsville, VA.

Welcome to Gente!

For reference, 1912 manifest
Page 1
www.ellisisland.org/EI...;line=0009

Page 2
www.ellisisland.org/EI...;line=0009

A couple of clarifications:
His birthplace was Gerace, a town in the province of Reggio Calabria, region of Calabria.
I believe his name was Michele Domenico and it looks like he might have been travelling with relatives (see lines 6 and 8), all joining the same cousin in Philly at 727 S 7th St.

Locri was once a Frazione in Gerace. It was known as Gerace Marina and in 1934 changed it's name to Locri. It looks like Domenico was born there. I also agree it looks like his name may actually have been Michele DOmenico (although he does have listed Micheli) so if you are going to look for records make sure to look at the Michele's as well. I have the birth indici for Gerace but only until 1958 so Vincenzo won't be there.


You can write to the Comune of Locri and request Vincenzo & Caterina Scarfo birth acts which will confirm their parents names and perhaps ages. There is no charge for this. The letter should be written in Italian.

You may also try emailing the Reggio Archives for the records. There is a small charge involved but they are very good at replying. Payment should be sent in Euro's (usually 5 euros is more than enough and is available at the nearest Italian bank or airport). You just put the money in between a few pieces of paper and off you go.

Let me know if you need any help and I can try to make some inquires for you (I still have a few connections there).

As a side note: Locri is beautiful. My dad was born there and hopefully will be visiting in the next few months if the doctor clears him for travel. I am looking forward to visiting again but have no dates set yet.

Thank you so very much for the information. I will start a letter to Italy. Found a draft on your website. Hope you have a great trip and maybe you can give us a few pointers for planning his honeymoon. I am sure I will need more help and I thank you in advance.

Oh Happy Day!!!!! I took a chance and faxed a letter to Comune in Locri and received a reply...Copy of Micheli Domenico Muscatello birth record confirming and naming his parents as Vincenzo Muscatello and Caterina Scarfo. Appears his birthdate is 15 September 1893. Now I will write (maybe fax---do not want to push my luck) for his parents birth and marriage records. Unless you have another suggestion.....? Thank you for your help. WILL be sending donation to your site...never used paypal.
Always, Cindy

That's great news Cindy! I am so happy for you! And I am impressed the Comune di Locri replied so quickly! Does the record say how old Vincenzo or Caterina were at the time of the birth? Does it list any of their parents names (ie: Vincenzo di ???). I just want to get an approximate date they were born. Maybe I have the records. Thx for you r offer to donate - all donations are welcomed and very much appreciated. It's how we can continue to run the sites!

Nuccia,

Thank you again for all the information. To answer your question there were no dates on the birth certificate for the parents of Micheli D. Muscatello. I called my sons fiance' father and he has located two letters from Caterina Scarfo. He thinks Micheli father, Vincenzo was born about 1867 and wife Caterina was born about 1871...and they married about 1892. Micheli was the oldest and his siblings were Maria, Guiseppe, and Carmela. Last letter from Italy dated 1950...states that Caterina has recently passed away. I have mailed my letters to Italy and now the long wait begins....I know my luck will not be as good this time.
I also tried to use my debit card to send a donation, however paypal would not take the card. Is there an address I can mail a donation?
As always with much admiration and thanks,
Cindy in Virginia, USA

Hi Cindy!

I will keep my out for any info on this family. I have also sent out some feelers to my contact in Locri - hopefully he can come through for you. Meanwhile, I appreciate the offer of the donation and I agree- it doesn't look like it allows debit. It only takes credit cards. You can email me for my address. Thanks again
