Hello Cynthia! All of the records are from ancestry (manifests from Ellis Island) One record lead to another starting with your information and Nicholas and Mary on the 1930 census. Since both surnames were hard to find, I searched using first names and approximate birth dates in Luzerne County. The naturalization records were found after the 1920 census stated that Luigi was naturalized abt 1911. I searched directly in the Ancestry. com. U.S. Naturalization Records - Original Documents, 1795-1972 database for "Luigi" born 1881 +/- 1 year in Pennsylvania. Valarie
Re: Luigi and Concetta, they could have been married in Manhattan, but I'm not sure. My father doesn't give me any information as we are estranged from each other. So, it's hard. My mother's side is not Italian.
Yup. I have found Granteed, Granted, and Grunted. My grandmother's maiden name was Granteed. They were from Pittston/Hughestown. I also found out that it's not spelled Granitieri, but Granatiero. Not sure where in Italy they are from, but I believe it's Vico del Gargano. I have recently made a connection with someone who does genealogy on the Foggia region. Thanks for your help.
