Surnames: Januzzi,Jannuzzi
Anyone have family that was in this home in about 1919-1924 or so? My mother in law. Erminia (Erma) Jannuzzi was there as a 5 year old. I am doing research for my husband. Her 2 brothers were in another home. She was moved to Milwaukee at some point. She has no birth certificate and we are trying to back into it. Thanks. Cheri

shushu138, do you know your mother-in-law's birth month and day?

"Armine" JANUZZI was enumerated in Racine, Racine County, WI in 1930, age 16 (born c1914 in Wisconsin), with father Peter (born c1887 Italy, widowed) and brother Mike (born c1910 WI).

In 1920, Michael (age 7, born Italy), "Arminia" (age 5, born MN) and Dominic (age 3, born MN) all were enumerated at St. Joseph Orphanage in Superior, Douglas County, WI.

The MN Death Index lists a "Baby Hatherine Jannzzi" born 9 Mar 1915 in St. Louis County.

An SSDI entry for a Dominic Januzzi indicates birth date of 27 Apr 1918, death date Jan 1964, SSN issued in Wisconsin.

If you know your mother-in-law's birthdate, or approximation, it may be helpful to contact the St. Louis County, Minnesota, county recorder's office to inquire about birth records.

I am really remiss in answering this. Ermina was born March 27, 1914 or 1915 according to the nuns. That is the date we celebrated her birthday. But she remembers before she went in the orphanage at around age 5, that her birthday was celebrated around November. She had NO birth certificate and only baptismal was used for her records. she passed away this past Oct 31, 2009.

one more item. Mike was actually born in Italy and Peter was not widowed. His wife abandoned the family but it may have reported it as a death.

Surnames: Martin
My father and his three siblings lived at St. Josephs in Superior from about 1919 to 1924. The surname is Martin. I would be interested in information and stories close to this time interval.

My grandfather (Allen Dunahee) and his siblings lived in an orphanage in Superior from 1921-1924. He said it was "Belknap Children's Home" but I can't find this place. Could it have been St. Joseph's?
