Bressi roots

Postby Bressi1 » 12 May 2010, 20:08

Hi! I'm new and I'm interested in finding ANY information that anyone may have about my grandfather. This is what I know... His name was Domenico Bressi... he was born on November 28th 1885 or 1883. He arrived on Ellis Island in 1904, and his name was changed to Dominick Bressi. I know that he was from the Calabria region of Italy and I believe that he had an older brother that practically raised him and maybe 2 sisters also. He met and married my grandmother Elizabeth Fraugepane in New York and they had 3 sons... Francis, Philip, and Paul.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Thank you!

Ok, if he was born in the town where he was resident, Roccella Jonica, you can order a copy of his birth record from FHL microfilm (mormons)

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/library ... occela+J++

Nati 1883 FHL INTL Film
1800669 Item 4

Nati 1885 FHL INTL Film

or you can write a letter only in italian to Roccella Jonica civil record office

Comune Ufficio di Stato civile
Via XXV Aprile
CAP 89047
Roccella Jonica (RC)
Italy

I hope it helps
bye Riccardo
