If anyone can help, I am looking for information on my father and grandfather and there famlies. My fathers real name is David Allen Farino and was adopted and his name is now Johnson. His father was Camillo Farino. Camillo's family is from the Mechanicsvilles, NY area. I beleve they both reside in Florida. That's all I got. If you have any information I would love to hear from you. Thank you. Chris Johnson

Classification: Query
I checked the online Social Security Death Index, which is mostly for post-1962 deaths of cardholders whose deaths were reported to the Social Security Administration :

One entry has a Camillo whose data fits your query. To see his entry, go to the website, then enter this SSN :


If that entry seems to be the birth father, consider paying $27.00 to the U.S. government for a copy of the SS-5 form he filled out when he applied for his Social Security card. It would list his birthplace and names of his parents. RootsWeb has a form letter for this purpose---click on "SS-5."

If you wish to trace the younger generation (his surviving relatives), guess which state he died in and apply for his death certificate. If it was Florida, apply to :

Florida Dept. of Health, Office of Vital Statistics, POB 210, Jacksonville FL 32231. Phone : 904-359-6900 (extension 1029 has been mentioned by someone)

The death certificate may list a relative as the "Informant." It should name the funeral parlor and cemetery who can be queried as to names of relatives, or at least who paid their bills. You may be able to find an obituary in the newspaper and/or a will at the county courthouse. These should list relatives.
