Looking for Alderucci Family Members.

Postby DebbieMum » 14 Jan 2009, 02:43

Hello.. I am beginning a search for Italian family members that might be related to my grandparents, Francesco and Santa (Ferlito) Alderucci who came to the US through Ellis Island between 1908 - 1930 from Palermo and Siracusa . Any information would be helpful to get started.

Welcome to ItalianGenealogy!!
I'm Lee, moderator here at IG. We have a great team here, and hopefully one of our other members will get a chance to do some research for you!!
It certainly helps to have more than one perspective!

In the meantime, can you tell us in what US state did they reside?
Did they have any children and their names if known? Do you have any birthdates or death dates? No detail to small in order to track down the right family and help members provide accurate direction.

Best of luck in your search!!
Lee

If Francofonte, Siracusa is correct, this may help you locate family currently living in Italy.

Thank you so much for helping so quickly...Yes, the information that was found is comprable to what I was told as a child...What I don't know is who my grandfather's relatives are...He came to the USA (NY) earlier in 1908...he came on the Rosa...I have a photograph of him on the ship..I wsa able to find addresses through the Italian White pages, and I will write letters to the Alderucci's that are listed..

Where would I post a letter that could be translated?
Thank you again for the help so far...I apperciate it so much!
