Hi my name is Bob Giagunto, I am trying to find information on my grandfather.. His name is Pietro Giaquinto born on Jan 6, 1896 in Naples, Italy i believe. I don't know is mother or fathers name, but I believe he had a brother named Russell.

Hello and welcome to this forum-

Do you have any records for him? from your post, I am gathering that you do not.

I don't see him listed in the social security index which would have been one way to get a document which would have his parents' names and town of birth.

Naples is both a city and a province, so we need to determine which it is. Finding him on a passenger list might help us determine his exact place of birth. Also, where in the U.S. did he live, if he did, in fact, emigrate here? Finding census records for him may help us determine his year of immigration and help us locate him on a passenger list. Also do you know if he married here in the U.S. ?

That is all the information i have on him. His wife is Theresa Clouse. They lived in West Virginia and he served in the first world war. Then moved to NJ . Died at Veterans memorial hospital in Phila, Pa. May 24, 1956 Letter from hospital named him Petro Giagunto. When he died the my fathers brothers and sisters that were over the age of 18 last names are Quinto. My father and younger brothers and sisters are Giagunto. It is very frustrating because the names are alll different.
