Giuseppe “Joseph” Cirabisi 1873-1950

Leonarda (Lena) Geraci and her husband Giuseppe “Joseph” Cirabisi

Giuseppe “Joseph” Cirabisi was born on March 5, 1873, in Sicily, Italy. He had one son and two daughters with Leonarda (Lena) Gerace or Geraci between 1909 and 1916. He died in 1950 at the age of 77.

On the free FamilySearch.org website his ID# is L1FX-D4W

Here is a recap on an original document showing when Joseph immigrated at the age of 10 to the USA arriving on November 3, 1013. (Note that census records and other government records showed little regard to spelling, this might explain why his father’s name is listed as Tirabisi instead of Cirabisi?!)

At the age of 35 years old, he stated for New York records that he was employed as a Bracciante (translation is farm hand , hired hand or laborer.

Citizenship papers are attached here from 1923.
