Lo zio d'America

Postby chaika » 30 Nov 2010, 14:03

Hi, I'm looking for my uncle Mazzoni Francesco date of birth Leghorn (Livorno) 1878. He left Italy (Florence) in may 1913 and follows the Fabbri's family to New York, Bar Harbor (Maine). He also appears in Ellis Island passengers records (1913 and 1914), he worked as a valet for a rich italian family emigrated in America.
Since these periods, we hadn't no news about our uncle. Please suggest me some way to reach him.
Many thanks!

Thank you!
