Giannone Genealogy

Postby Italianchickie » 04 May 2010, 02:11

I am looking for some info on my grandfather, Giacomo Giannone. Later in life he went by James Giannone. He was born in Messina, Sicily around July 14, 1921. He immigrated to the US in October 1923 at age 2 with his parents Carmelo and Maria Giannone.
Does anyone know anything about his parents or grandparents or the Giannone family from Messina?

Thank-You
