AFTER ww1 my grandfather returned to italy to marry my grandmother cesidia colone also of roccavivi, italy ....guiseppe returned to the usa alone until he saved enough money to send for his wife cesidia defelice and they eventually settled in nanticoke, pennsylvania where they raised their son (my father) angelo defelice and daughter (my aunt)mary defelice .
In 1972 i went to roccavivi italy with my grandparents ... met other family relatives and saw the land my grandmother owned while she was alive ....can anyone tell me where to start to find my grandparents records of birth or marriage ??? , records of the land, or of my grandfathers war records,
This summer I wouldlike to take my daughters to meet any relatives left and to also check on our land there...

Hi Roberta,

Do you happen to know Giuseppe's mother's maiden name, his fathers name and about what year Giuseppe was born?

Look at line 19 of the manifest, Angelina Colone going to husband Giuseppe De Felice.

edited - not going to Naticoke.

Look at line 19 of the manifest, Angelina Colone going to
Naticoke Pa and husband is Giuseppe De Felice.


Hey Elizabeth :D !
Not sure if we're looking at line 19 or 20, sometimes it
helps to slide the manifest to the bottom of the computer
screen to read across. I have a terrible time with this
myself, especially on the far right side of manifests.
What do you think?

hey vj

I just edited my previous post. Angelina Colone is going to New York but I think after her husbands name Giuseppe they wrote De Felice.

The next line down for Cesidia says Nanticoke but it looks to me that her husband has a different name.

I'll look again.

I just looked again, and it looks like husband Giuseppe belongs to Angelina Colone on line 19 but I'm sure you're correct. I'm still learning and sometimes I get cross eyed looking at the information!! lol

I'll keep reading along with the thread and learning.

thanks vj
