Gasperina MARTELLO and AGRESTA

Postby bura » 24 Apr 2009, 18:51

I am searching for family members of Giuseppe Martello, b. 10 April 1896, and his wife Marianna Agresta, b. 18 October 1898, both from Gasperina, Catanzaro. Giuseppe immigrated to the United States in 1912. He returned to Gasperina to marry Marianna on 28 October 1916, when they both returned to U.S. to Pennsylvania. Some of his siblings also immigrated to U.S., but contact was lost. If anyone has any information on other family members, and living relatives, I would be most grateful.

Have you searched thru manifest to make connections between the siblings?
Often the person they are leaving and joining is listed depending on the year of travel, as well as the destination, sometimes including address.

As stated above by Peter, if you could state your research goals more clearly, members can provide you with better direction.
