senese from afragola

Postby kup181 » 24 Jun 2010, 01:57

hello,
I'm looking for information regarding my grandmother. She was born Teresa Senese in Afragola about 1900. She came to the United States in 1922 with my grandfather Pietro Fioti. They came on the ship Aquitania to Ellis Island. I suspect that she arrived earlier than 1922 from some documents that I found,but my uncle insists that 1922 was the first time she arrived here.
I would like to know if there are any relatives here and back in Italy. Also if there is any way to find out her parents and grandparents names. Please help!

The only way to verify is to match info you know. What was Teresa's mother's name?
Did she have sisters and brothers?

on the line n. 13 for Teresa Senese there is a naturalization mark:

the first number 2 is the INS naturalization office of southern NY, I believe your Teresa Senesa lived in PA...

Hello,

After the information that I wasgiven I questioned my uncle again. The only thing that he remembers is that he thinks that his grandmothers name was either Elizabetta or Concetta. He was right in that his mother came over for the first time in 1922. If there is any way to research the marriage or birth of Teresa Senese.

Thak-you
