Welcome to the Forum!
We would be happy to see what we can do to help.
Are you looking for your great grandfather's US records or help with finding his Italian records, or both?

Do you know anything about Emilio Lorezelli? He was brought over to America in 1903 by the Vincenzo Giordano Family. I am trying to find out the birth parents of Emiglio Lorenzelli who is my Grandfather. He was born in Cozena to a women who would not give her name or the fathers name on the birth certificate. I am assuming the fathers name was Lorenzelli. He was born in a house located at Via Camposanto Viecchio. According to the birth certificate he was sent to an orphanage. According to the Ellis Island Passenger list, Vincenzo Giordano from Cozena came over in 1905 and Emiglio came over in 1903. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Do you have know of any relatives in Chicago still living who trace the blood line?

Milo Jordan was a master plumbmer (my Grandfather). His birth name is Emiglio Lorenzelli, born in Cozena Italy, I think. He married Mary Conte and my dad (deceased) was James Jordan. I am trying to find records of Emiglio from Italy. I believe after birth he was sent to an orphanize.
