Fillipo LaFratta born 1876/7 in San Guiliano

Postby april2579 » 11 Apr 2010, 04:51

I'm looking for information on my Great Great grandparents

Fillipo & Philomena (Fannie) LaFratta, they both immigrated to the US in 1916 & 1919 respectively along with their children, I believe they were all born in Italy; Raefele, Nicolena, Carman & Philomena.

I'd like to know ,if I could, Fannie's maiden name and information about their births and marriage.

Thanks to anyone who can help or point me in the right direction!

Thanks Valerie!! Yes I have most of my US records... I'm also trying to get ahold of my Great Uncle whom I think ended up with the photo albums and marriage licenses after my great grandmother's death...

I was hoping to jump the pond so to speak :)
