Di Pace family from Naples

Postby ldipaci » 28 Jul 2008, 02:50

I am trying to locate any information regarding Leo Di Pace or his brother Fernando from Naples. Leo was born about 1881 and emmigrated to the U.S. about 1900. I know that Fernando lived in Genoa at some point and had a daughter named Giannetta. I have very little information and
I'm not sure where to start looking.

Thank you for any help.

THANK YOU all for your help. I will look into these leads. VJ, I do believe you have t he correct information. I am only confused at the date of emmigration for Leo. I guess that is to be expected though. If anyone has any thing to add, I'd appreciate it.
