Finding grandparents

Postby ballykea » 02 Sep 2009, 18:49

I am trying to find information about my Grandmother who was born Angelina Cecere in maybe the year 1872 she lived in Mirabella Eclano and came to America to marry in sometime around 1888.

And my grandfather, Angelo Luisi who was from Naples area I was wondering if you have any information with their names.

Can you provide additional detail, in which US state did they reside?
Names of their children? Birth dates? Even a year can be helpful.....

They lived in Boston their whole lives after emigrating. First in the North end and then in East Boston. Children - Concetta, Mary, Carluccio, Lena, Josefina, Angelique, Florencia, and Edie. She was born I think in early 1880's he in early 1870's. I think was told he arrived in 1888 but could not find record at Ellis Island
