DeSimone, Aburzzo, Italy

Postby cynannwood » 02 Jan 2010, 19:47

My Great Grandfather's name is Liberato DeSimone born in Abruzzo, Italy in the late 1800's. His father is Stefano DeSimone and his mother is Mary Rosa DeBiaso. That is as far as my cousin has went. What can we do now?
He married two women from Italy. His first wife is Anna Silvani, which he married in the early 1900's and his second wife is Livia DellaPena he married in the late 1940's.
Are these common or uncommon surnames?

Have you found his ship manifest?
