Bongianni and De Vico in Valle di Maddeloni

Postby Drew927 » 16 Mar 2009, 04:58

My Grandfather Andrea Bongianni and Grandmother Francesca De Vico were married in Dugenta. Francesca De Vico was born in Valle di Maddeloni in 1896 and I'm looking for information about Andrea Bongianni. If these name are familiar please let me know. If anyone has advice for me, all would be helpful and appreciated.

Hello!
Did Andrea & Francesca live in Brooklyn?
If you haven’t already done so, you may want to find your US records for your family first.
If you can locate Andrea’s ship manifest & 1917-1918 WWI Draft Registration Card or 1942 Draft Registration Card, they may have his town of origin in Italy.
Once you have Andrea’s birth date and town of origin you can research your family in Italy - Italian records are kept at the comune (main town) level.
Please let us know if you need any help tracking down records.
