Bernardo Marino Family

Postby lyma18 » 24 Jan 2009, 21:44

My husbands grandfather Bernardo Marino born in Bisacquino on May 20, 1886. He was married to Francesca Colca born March3,1881. They came to America @1901.He had a sister who was a cloistered Nun by the name Madre Maria Rosaria. We have a post card from her dated 1958. She is with her cousin Palmer Marino. Does anyone know of their family? I can't get much info but looks like came through Ellis island. Bernardo came to Ensley, Al and owned a grocery. Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.

My daughter is getting married in Feb and wants a family tree. I have done great on all but my husband's father's family . If I can get records from there maybe I can track down Bernardo's parents names, or more abot Francesca. He also had a second sister that also was a nun but have no other info on her. I have a ship's log where he came through Ellis Island but nothing on Francesca. So we are really seeking info records we can share with our kids and it looks like it will need to be from there as we have no where to start looking.Thanks
