I need help. Although I was born and raised in NJ, as it was told, I was conceived in East NY and I spent so many years there on weekends visiting the Musa and the Saladino families. The fondest memories of my childhood all involve East NY. It might be the reason why, in 1983, I decided to settle in Brooklyn; first Cobble Hill and then Bay Ridge where I live to this day.

Are there any East NY historians here?

I am attempting to find the birth certificate for my grandmother, Maria Musa, born in East NY in 1888. NYC records do not contain same., although I have found her marriage record of 1904 in Manhattan and all of her children’s birth records.

Her father, Guglielmo, owned a fruit stand on Fulton Street. The Musa family, back in the day, lived on Fulton Street, Vermont Street, Wyona Street and Pennsylvania Avenue.

I’d appreciate all and any replies. Our Parish in East NY was Saint Malachy’s
