GGrandparent in New York.

Postby IoIo » 27 Oct 2007, 12:16

GoodMorning,

I'm lookinf for information about my GGrandparent and his brothers who came in New York (Brooklyn) in early 1900 from Messina (Sicily).

My Ggranfather's name was Nunzio Romeo. He was born in 1875.
He went in New York (Brooklyn) in 1899, 1904 and 1906.
His brothers were: Vincenzo Romeo and Letterio Romeo.
Both they were born in Messina.
Vincenzo Romeo (b. 1865) went in New York in 1904 (he lived in Brooklyn from 1898 to 1900). He was married.
Letterio Romeo (b. 1877) went in New York in 1905. (he lived in Brooklyn from 1898 to 1904). He was married.
Vincenzo and Letterio lived in Brooklyn in Union Street.

In 1904 with my Ggrandpoarent left Italy with a relative. He was a child. He was 9 years old.
His name was Placido Romeo. He was born in Messina, in 1895 (I think).

Nowadays I'd like to know some information about my Ggrandparent and his relatives.

I wish to know what job did in New York Nunzio Romeo.
Then I wish to know the Census in Brooklyn in 1900 for Nunzio Romeo, Vincenzo Romeo and Letterio Romeo.
I think in 1900 both Vincenzo and Letterio were married and pheraps they had children.

Then I wish to know the census in 1910, 1920, 1930 for Vincenzo Romeo and Letterio Romeo (brothers), and for Placido Romeo. May be they moved from Brooklyn to Little Italy.

Placido Romeo (the child), went in New York to live whit his uncle Russo Antonino.

Is it possible to have information about Us Naturalization for Vincenzo, Letterio and Placido Romeo.

Then, is possible to obtain military document for Placido Romeo. I think he was a soldier in WWI or in WWII.

I'd like to know if are still live Vincenzo's and Letterio's sons.

Last question, is possible to have information for these men from Sanitary Insurrance or from Pension Plan?

Thanks in advance for your help.
