Zanandrea Family from Mussolente Italy

Postby tzan » 06 May 2009, 16:55

I am looking for information, relatives, etc. from Mussolente, Cassone, Italy. My grandfather Eugenio Zanandrea and his brother Antonio came
to the United states in 1913. My grandfather was born 11-27-1895 and Antonio was born on 06-13-1889. I would appreciate any information
on the Zanandrea's that you may have, I have seem to run into a
dead end. Ironically there is a road in Mussolente called Via A. Zanandrea..I would love to have a photo of the road and also know
if it was named after someone in my family.

Wow, you are quick. Thank you so much. This could explain a few things, for awhile my grandfather used Baggio as his last name, he never said why and my sisters first name is Louisa, my grandfather insisted she be name that.
