I'm looking for information about my husband's family. I need information regarding Vincent Rossetti b. 11 Sep 1888 in Italy m. 14 Dec 1919 d. July 1979 in Chicago, Illinois. He was married to Concetta Maria Crisanti. Concetta's parents are Joseph Crisanti and Maria La Nasa. Can anyone help me?

Welcome to the Forum!
Did you need help with US records, Italian records or both?
Do you have any US records (census, military, etc)
Thanks!

Valarie,
I'll take whatever you can give me. My father-in-law (Henry Rossetti) said his dad, Vincent, was sometimes called Jimmy. He also said his dad had brothers who lived in Canada. Unfortunately, that's all he know about his dad.

Cindi,
We'll be happy to help.
It appears there are several records on ancestry. com.
Unfortunately that site has been having problems for a couple of days.
A quick check of the 1930 census indicated he arrived abt 1909 and had
become a citizen by 1930.
Does your father-in-law know the town or area in Italy he was from?
Thanks! Valarie

Wow y'all are awesome! Hank told me that Vincent was from DeMerci. Know that Concetta, her mother, father, and brothers lived in the Chicagoland area. Concetta's father (Joseph) died in 1932 and mother (Maria) died in 1936. I'm not sure what town they're from. I'll have to look at my notes.

Ok. I have a couple of corrections.

Vincent Rossetti was from Bari, Italy.
Concetta Crisanti and her family was from DeMerci, Italy.

Thanks,
