Gagliardi Genealogy

Postby seatbeltblue » 10 Dec 2008, 00:08

I'm trying to find information about my great-grandparents Gaetano and Ida Gagliardi, both of whom would have died in New York. Their daughter was Alice Gagliardi Visaggio, who married Michael Arthur Visaggio, son of Prospero and Julia Visaggio.

Thanks so much!

Does anyone have the faintest idea why the family name is here as "Gagliardo," but that whole branch of my family goes by "Gagliardi?"
