My Italian friend is looking for descendants of his great uncle who immigrated to US from Leporano, Taranto. I have following information about his great uncle. Could anybody please tell me how I can find his great uncle's family?
1. name...Antonio Lo Re
2. DOB...Oct. 20, 1889
4. arrival...Ellis Island, Aug. 15, 1913
5. father...Arcangelo Lo Re
6. mother...Chiara Stani
7. wife...Cosima De Sales
8. Residence before US...Leporano, Taranto
9. Residence after arrival..Niagara Falls, NY
Thank you so much for your help!!!
I already had his shipmanifest but I never thought about census. That was awesome! Now I got his children's names, I guess I should check if they were on census. Thanks again!
I meant how I can get "different" census record...sorry I didn't explain enough. I didn't have any problem seeing the 1930 census list which you showed me. Since I got his children's names in that record, I wanted to research the children's record in more recent census so that I might be able to find Antonio Lore's grand children....I will try to subscribe Ancestry.com. Thanks for all your kind help!
Thanks for great advice about census and ancestry.com!
Yes, Anthony Lore in that address and phone number was my father-in-law. Our friend in Italy first thought that my father-in-law might be a grand son of Antonio Lo Re. It turned out wrong because of different great grandparents names. We will try to call Lore people in a phone book or yahoo people search.
We are going to Niagara Falls next week for Thanksgiving. (It is a beautiful place, indeed.) Hope we can find the right people for our Italian friend....
How nice of you to take the time to help a Lore "cousin" from Italy. We often advise people to try writing to people with their surname in the town of origin in Italy, hoping for information on their family. Wonderful to see the same principle working in reverse.
We are here to help if we can. Is the Ellis Island and census record "your" ancestor or the ancestor of the friend in Italy? Perhaps we can find another clue if you have more information to share about the person being sought.
