Looking for Cascianos

Postby MCas86 » 31 Dec 2009, 04:55

I would love to find out if I have any relatives in Sicily yet. All I know is my father was an only child to Gasper and Mary Casciano. However, I don't know if Gasper had any siblings or if any before him. I know none of my relatives will be of close relation but it would be great to find out. I have the Ellis Island records somewhere at home that I may be able to find and provide more information as to when they arrived in the USA and how old they were. Thanks.

If your grandfather Gasper Casciano was born in the U.S. on 1922 so, maybe this is the 1930 census for his family: :?:
