Pandolfo ancestors

Postby chrisdamato » 05 Aug 2010, 17:53

My great, great grandmother was named Madelene Pandolfo, according to my great grandfather's death certificate. In the 1900 census, he was living with his uncle, who was listed as John Andolfi. I haven't found him on other census records. In checking other websites, it seems that the name may actually be Pandolfi instead of Pandolfo. I don't know why the P was removed on that census.

It would be nice to find more information on that side of my family. Does anyone have common ancestry that may aid in my search? They are from Sant'Arsenio, Salerno area of Italy. John (Giovanni) came over with his wife Mary (Maria) supposedly in 1878, but I cannot find any records from that year when using SteveMorse.org.

Do you have a birth year for John?

Is this him? Note - wife Mary residing in Naples...

[edit] Actually, this one says birth was in 1881. Where was John Andolfi located in the 1900 census you mentioned? [end edit]

Yes, that's the census I was referring to. Not sure who the other guy is that was born in 1881. It's not one of the children from the census though.
