Caimi-Culatina Immigrant Ancestors


We are a nation of immigrants. Most of us descend from others who came to this land whether by their own volition or against their will. With this in mind, I will be documenting all the known immigrant ancestors for both my family and my spouse’s family. This is sixth installment of this series.

Now that I have finished documenting both sides of my family’s immigrant ancestors, I now will document my spouse’s immigrant ancestors. First up is his father’s paternal line: the CaimiCulatina family. Of all of the lines I am documenting (both my own and my spouse’s), this one has the most recent American immigrants.

The first immigrant we find is Walter Caimi, who was born 26 Apr 1913 in San Martino dall’Argine, Mantua, Lombardy, Italy. He arrived in the United States on 18 February 1921 on the S.S. Ferdinando Palasciano, sailing from Genoa, Italy to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He came to this country with his two younger brothers, Renzo and Bunda, and his mother, Adalgisa (Culatina) Caimi. Adalgisa, my husband’s paternal grandmother, was born 8 Feb 1894 in San Martino dall’Argine, Mantova, Lombardy, Italy.

She joined her husband, Luigi, who immigrated to America the year before on 17 May 1920 on the on the S.S. Guiseppe Verdi from Genoa, Italy to Ellis Island, New York. Luigi Caimi, my husband’s paternal grandfather, was born 2 Apr 1890 in Belforte, Mantua, Lombardy, Italy.
