Grandfather links

Postby roccosbambinas » 22 Dec 2008, 09:59

Hello,

We are searching for information on our grandfather's family.
Grandfather - Rocco Antonio (Anthony) Lanzo born in Chelsea, Mass, USA to Stanzilaro (Stanley/Stanislas/Stanislaos) Lanzo (B.1885) and Mary Fiore Lanzo (B. 1887)
Stanizlaro and Maria are both from the Grottaminardi area of Avellino.
We believe that Stanizlaro's father is Alfonzo Lanzo, b.1860
If you can help, please let me know

Just so we don't duplicate research, can you tell us what records you
have located so far?

Hello,

I joined Footnotes and also, Ancestry.com before posting here. There is a lot of information, though I am still looking. My great-grandfather's name does not appear with the same spelling twice: Stanislaro, Stanislao, Stanislau, Stanislavo, and Stanley.

The bottom line is not only interest, our daughter is a recent college graduate whose boyfriend is an Italian. We hope to find the necessary documents to repatriate so the marriage is not a pressure upon them. She is also working on the VISA process, though we would all love to renew our Italian roots through dual citizenship.

Thank you for the tips on searching and I will continue to search and enjoy this community rapport.
