Newbie needs help with Memmo from Lanciano, Abruzzo, Italy

Postby elmemmo » 23 Apr 2009, 16:53

Hi,
I am new to this site and I have just started researching my husband's family. Unfortunately we do not have alot of information or relatives to go to for help. I am looking for information on the following family:

Giuseppe Antonio Memmo
b. 25 Nov 1880 Lanciano, Abruzzo, Italy
d. 11 Jun 1947 Welsh, W.Virginia USA

I believe he came to America in 1907 but not positive. I know he was living in West Virginia by 1910. On his WWI Draft Card it lists his closest living relative as Angela Memmo Lanciano, Abruzzo, Italy.

If anyone has information about this family (sibblings, parents ect) or advice on how to proceed I would love the information. This is my first time researching anything in Italy.

Thank you,
Ellen Memmo
