Hi Marco and welcome to the forum.

Perhaps you could provide more information to help us find this family in US records.

What is the year of birth for Antonio and Giuditta and their children? Do you know what US state they settled in?

What town in Italy were they from?

1. Gallo Giuditta was born in 01 may 1852;

Didn't find a census for 1900 0r 1910 that looked promising. Searching without a location can be difficult.

On this he is traveling alone. He is from South Italy. Older manifest without alot of detail.
POSSIBLE manifest:

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957
about Giovanni Berto
Name: Giovanni Berto
Arrival Date: 25 Nov 1889
Estimated birth year: abt 1853
Age: 36
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Le Havre, France
Destination: New York
Place of Origin: Italy
Ethnicity/Race/Nationality: Italian
Ship Name: La Bretagne
Search Ship Database: View the La Bretagne in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database
Port of Arrival: New York
Line: 59
Microfilm Serial: M237
Microfilm Roll: M237_541
List Number: 1613
Port Arrival State: New York
Port Arrival Country: United States

I was going to link image, but ImageShak is not cooperating tonight.

Can you check with the town vital records officer and get birth years for the children and wife? It would help to find them. It can be helpful to search for all available information in Italy, before crossing the ocean. The more we know about this family, the easier it is to find them.

Do you have any letters or postcards they mailed to Italy? Postmarks can be very helpful.

LDS has a record for Judith Galo - born in Veneza, Italy abt 1853 - died 4/7/1940 - married 1874 to Antonio Berto. It lists her parents as Antonio Galo & Regina (no surname). Lds shows his birth year as 1851 but no location & no parents.

They are probably the ones that landed on 01.06.1888 in Fanfulla vessel in the port of Santos - São Paulo.
And maybe my ancestors too, am researching ...
My great great grandfather was called Angelo Berto, and are said to have been born during the migration, still inside the ship.

See this site that proves landing in Brazil
