How to find relatives of emigrated.

Postby flavescens » 25 Dec 2008, 18:51

Hi, have been recently to New York in vacation and to Ellis Island, I have tracked a relative emigrated in the U.S.A. down. I would like to find his descendants, but I have few news. The information that I have are:
Name: BIAGI Giuseppe
Last Place of Residence: Filattiera, Italy
Date of Arrival: 19 may 1921
Age of Arrival: 17
Port of Departure: Genova
Ship of Travel: Giuseppe Verdi
Manifest Line Number: 0026
Final Destination: his uncle Nicola BIAGI, that he lived to Santa Rosa, California.

I know that he had two children, Geraldine that she has lived to Santa Rosa CA and Joseph that he has lived to Sacramento CA.
I would like to track his children or nephews (address, email, phone, etc), because my grandmother, that is 98 years old, is the wife of the brother of Giuseppe BIAGI and I wanted to make a gift to my grandmother.

Tanks in advance.
