first time here- looking for DeMarco's and Morasca'

Postby demarco36 » 18 Jun 2010, 19:07

Hello, this is my first post here. I have just begun looking for family and figured this would be a good place to start. I have no more family living that can give me any answers into my past so i am starting with very little info. All i know is my grand father was Frank DeMarco, born in 1900 in Italy (i believe sicialy). He married Frances Morasca also from Sicily who was born in 1902. they both came to America and were married in Detroit Michigan February 18, 1922. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
