Looking for Leogrande.

Postby russo1 » 09 Aug 2010, 04:00

Looking for Giambattista LeoGrande. All I know is he married Domenica Castronover-not sure if that is right, maybe Costanova? He lived in Utica, NY. His hometown I think was Alberobelo.
Any help would be appreciated.

If this is him, he came over from Naples in 1907 to Brooklyn to see his friend Fillipo _icastro?
He was born in 1881, Ginosa which is about 30 Miles from Alberobello.

Clink the link and then click where it says enlarge manifest. Line 11

Yes, that's definitely him. I cannot view the obituaries suanj, is there a trick to see them. I get the http403 forbidden error.
