Do you happen to know approx dates of birth for John (Giovanni), Luigi and Geraldo?

Do you have the ship manifests, or are you looking for them?

Where in US did they settle?

I found a article abt Matthew P Ferrigno, Coast Guard in 1945, 109 Rider ave made a trip in Italy, searching the italian relatives in Amalfi
http://www.fultonhistory.com/Newspaper% ... ehtml&.pdf

in other articles Matthew was patrolman... but I cannot find it in 1930 census...

I believe that Matthew was married at Victoria, this info found by google, but also I found a engagement in 26 Feb 1954 abt a Matthew Ferrigno at Connie Altieri; Matthew was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Ferrigno of 1359 E. 53d St, Brooklyn
http://www.fultonhistory.com/Newspaper% ... ehtml&.pdf

at same address a new abt:
Pvt. Matthew F. Ferrigno, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. E. Ferrigno, 1359
E. 53d St.

http://www.fultonhistory.com/Newspaper% ... ehtml&.pdf

so or this is another Matthew Ferrigno, or is the same of follow article, because in 28 Jul 1954 residing at different address it are maybe your ancestor:
Patrolman Matthew Ferrigno, 29, of 1312 E. 5th. St. was driving his wife ...
http://www.fultonhistory.com/Newspaper% ... ehtml&.pdf

and by that http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m ... 112350859/
Matthew P Ferrigno was really New York policeman ...

It is all that I found..

I am trying to establish the link to Matt Ferrigno..my Nonno always told us kids we were related to Lou Ferrigno. My Nonno did have cousins from Amalfi / Porto Empedocle...Berlingieri. My Famiglia Ferrigno originated from Amalfi



Also Looking for my Zio Giovanni Ferrignos family,, he came to the USA at Age 16? Via Ellis Island from Porto Empedocle and stayed in NYC,Lived @ 238 Thompson st NY..
Giovanni was the brother of Luigi and Geraldo. Who came to NYC first in 1924 Taromina Ellis island with their mother Margherita Ferrigno then moved to Canada.

Giovanni was married to Ester. He passed away Jan 1974 ? in NYC.
Giovanni had three children, Michael, Margaret and Caroline
Giovanni ( John/Luca) Ferrigno worked as a stationary engineer in New York City.

Giovanni's mother was Margherita Ferrigno and Father Michele Ferrigno, who lived in Guelph Canada With their other sons Luigi , Geraldo and Salvatore. Their only daughter Rose came over Oct 1925 SS Europa Ellis Island then moved to Guelph Ontario Canada
