Notes for ANTONIO M. BARBI:
Antonio (Anthonio or Anthony) Barbi arrived in the United States on 28 April 1898 aboard the Kaiser Wilhelm II from Genoa, Italy. He was 12 years old and came from Mirandola, Italy. Mirandola, Italy, is 30 miles north of Bologna, Italy, on Route 12. The ship departed Genoa on 14 April 1898.
Source: "Italians to America - Lists of Passengers Arriving in US Ports, 1880-1899, Vol 11", page 292, Editor Ira A. Glazier and P. William Filby, published by Scholarly Resources 2000.

According to the actual passenger list of the Kaiser Wilhelm II on 28 April 1898, Antonio Barbi was going to stay with his brother in New York--which 1910 US Census Records confirm.
Source: Kaiser Wilhelm II Passenger List.

Anthonio Barbi submitted a Naturalization Request in Queens County, New York. It is in Vol 54B Petition Number 12399. The "A" volumes range from 1906-1926. The "B" volumes range from 1927-1941.

Marriage Certificate number 6716, State of New York, March 4, 1911, shows both bride and groom lived in Long Island City, New York, at the time of their marriage. Anthonio's parents were listed as Marianno Barbi and Rosa Mengaredi; Carolina's parents were listed as Seradona Serra and Elisa Mocari. Witnesses were Pietro Serra (her cousin) and Delfa Barbi (her sister-in-law). [It should be noted here that Antonio's brother, Frederic's marriage certificate lists parents as Mariano (1 "n") Barbi and Rosa Alberghini. I think the last names on Antonio and Carolina's marriage certificate for the mothers are wrong.]

Death Certificate State of New York number 44642 dated August 1, 1950, says Anthony died in Smithtown, Long Island, New York on July 29, 1950. He was a resident of Queens at 140-35 Loburmm Avenue, Flushing, New York. His usual occupation was maintenance in the building business. Father's name was Marino, and mother's name was unknown.

Mirandola, Italy, is in Modena province of the Emilia-Romagna region in north central Italy. It has automobile assembly, footwear, food-canning, and hemp industries. The Romanesque-Gothic church of S. Francesco is a historic landmark. The town was the birthplace of Pico della Mirandola, the 15th-century scholar. Pop. (1984 est.) mun., 21,979.
Source: http://www.britannica.com/seo/m/mirandola/

Pico Della Mirandola, Giovanni, Conte (1463-94), Italian humanist philosopher, born near Ferrara, and educated at the University of Bologna. Instead of completing his studies at Bologna he visited famous universities in Italy and France, astonishing scholars with his precocious learning. At the age of 23 he settled in Rome and there publicly posted a list of 900 theses or propositions about all subjects, offering to defend them publicly. The pope deemed that some of his theses dealing with cabalistic magic were heretical and forbade him to carry on his projected discussions. In 1489 Pico completed the Heptaplus, a mystical account of the creation of the universe. His library was one of the largest and most comprehensive of his day. A wealthy man, he eventually decided to give away all his possessions and become a wandering preacher, but he died before he could carry out his plan. The year before his death Pope Alexander VI absolved him of any imputations of heresy.

Notes for MARIO ALFREDO BARBI:
Mario Barbi met Margaret Koenig at a movie theater in 1930 when Mario was 18 and Margaret was 17 through mutual friends. They dated for 5 years before they got married in 1935. After they married, they moved in with Mario's father (Antonio) and brother (Daniel) at 147-16 15th Drive, Whitestone, New York, and lived their for 1 or 2 years before moving into an apartment in Kew Gardens, New York. Mario's mother Carolina had been committed to an asylum prior to 1935 [actually September 1932 according to Caroline Barbi's death certificate] and did not live in Whitestone at the time. Caroline was put into the asylum because her son, Daniel, was gay, and she couldn't cope with it. In 1939, Mario and Margaret moved to 141-07 73 Avenue, Flushing, New York.

Notes for MARGARET VERONICA KOENIG:
Margaret Koenig was born at home on East 10th Street in 1913, and went to the New York Eye and Ear Hospital for care after her birth to have her tonsils removed after her birth. By 1918, her family had moved to 304 East 92nd Street. Baptismal Certificate and derived Birth Certificate number 28828 State of New York show birth date of October 8, 1913. Margaret assures her birth date is really October 12, 1913, which she has always celebrated. Margaret attended Julia Richman High School (an all-girls school then) on 68th Street and 1st Avenue. Margaret lived on 92nd Street in Yorkville. For 5 cents she could take the subway to get to school. Sometime she'd save her nickel to buy ice cream by walking home.

In the early 1930's Margaret earned $18 per week as a stenographer (typing/shorthand) for a male boss in downtown Brooklyn for the Lester Piano Company. Lester Piano was a Pennsylvania firm that had stores on the East coast. This money helped her family during the hard times of the Depression.

In 1939, Margaret moved into her current home at 141-07 73 Avenue, Flushing, New York, also known as Kew Garden Hills, New York. She then worked for Wheeler Shipbuilding in Whitestone, NY, during WW 2, as a secretary. Wheeler Shipbuilding made PT boats. In the early 1940's, Margaret went to work for the Overhead Door Company for a short time. Then her brother, William Koenig, got her a job at Sperry Gyroscope Company in Garden City, Long Island, which built analog computer-controlled bomb sights and ariborne radar systems. Until her retirement in 1978, she was an executive secretary for a number of insurance companies in New York City.

When her son, Kenneth, was born in 1945, she left work to raise him. Her husband, Mario, had been drafted in to the Army where he was assigned to the Signal Corps. Because Margaret had a blood clot during her pregnancy, Doctor Goldstein (attending physician) asked the Red Cross to curtail Mario's assignment to California en route to the Pacific war zone. Mario was assigned to Fort Dix, New Jersey, for the duration of WW 2.

This information was provided orally by Margaret Barbi to Kenneth Barbi on July 24, 2000.
