Fusco Surname

Postby PBLACKMAN » 27 Dec 2009, 20:42

I am looking for my great grandfather. His name was Generoso
Fusco. He was born in 1858 in Avellino, Italy. His wife was Maria Erminione, born in Italy. Might have migrate in 1890 to the United States. Rumor was that he and his family can back and forth many times between 1890 and 1902. In 1920 he was in Washington DC. Any help would be appreciated.

You could review your family’s vital records on microfilm.
If their last residence Montella, is also where they were born, married, etc

Your nearest Family History Center has records for Montella on microfilm.
The cost is about $6 mo (rent), you’ll need to go to the center to order & view them.

I also have a great grandfather name Generoso Fusco from the same area - Montella, Avellino, Italy. However he was born in 1875 (in Italy). He lived Boston, Mass, but had a sister and other relatives in the Washington DC area. His first wife was named Carmela and second wife Concetta.

Possible relation? I have not yet researched Italian records, just the US records on ancestry.com Email me here if you would like to share information. Thanks.
