Looking for information on my maternal grandfather Anthony Laterza.
He had 4 brothers and One sister. Dominic,Vito,Michael and John. His sister 's name was Joanne she married a man named Michael Lupo. I would like to find out his mother and fathers name. Maybe someone knows of them. My living relatives moved to Modena, and are living there . I have written several time but they are not interested in :) finding out about their American Cousin.

Hello and welcome to this forum.

In order for those of us on this forum to better help you, we need to something more about your ancestor. Do you know approximately when he was born? did any of these people immigrate to the U.S.? where did they settle?

do you have any kinds of records such as passenger lists, census records,etc. Do you know what town in Italy they were originally from?

any of this information would be helpful to us in helping you.

I already said:
"my idea is that Genevieve maiden name was CESARIO changed in Chesrow..."
if you read the Antonio naturalization, the witness was Eugenio Chesrow, same address of Antonio Laterza, and I believe brother of Genevieve Chesrow;

better: I am sure abt that...

well:
-Eugene J Chesrow was born in Chicago, IL, son of Francesco Chesrow and Francesca Passarelli;

-Francesco seeming born in 1868 in Italy; the Francesco Chesrow father was Giovanni Cesario ( 9 feb 1833-1862) and the mother Anna Concetta Asta both of San Fili, Cosenza, IT.

this data by a genealogic tree on ancestry.com

so by this infos, Francesco Cesario/Chesrow was born abt in 1860 and not in 1868...


but by Cosenza Archive:

Codice SIAS IT-ASCS-F680817
Stato Civile, Comune di SAN FILI. Registro numero 53, atto numero 48 di pagina -
Francesco Cesario nato/a il 11/04/1859

da Giovanni Cesario, bracciale, 25 anni e da Anna Asta, contadina, 23 anni


really Francesco Cesario- father of Genevieve Chesrow- was born in San Fili the 11 apr 1859, son of Giovanni 25 old, handman, and Anna Asta farmer, 23 old


so you can be very sure that
Genevieve/Jennie was the daughter of
Francesco Cesario( becoming Chesrow in USA) and Francesca Passarelli...
