Veletri's from Fondi

Postby joev1234 » 17 Nov 2010, 02:50

My grandfather, Pasquale Velletri, was born in Fondi around 1855. He first came to the US in 1906, though can't find manifest on Ancestry.com. He married in Italy to Carmela Mastrofrancesco. She came to the US in 1914. They both traveled through NY then on to Providence, Rhode Island

I am looking for his birth certificate or other information or other family info (brothers and sisters). Thanks for any help you can offer.

Thanks so much - i guess Pasouale Velletti is not that far off from Pasquale Velletri. But, yes, this is my Great grandfather.

My great-grandmother was Maria Velletri from Fondi. She married Libero Mastrangelo and my grandfather Raffaele Mastrangelo was born on 30 Jan 1885. He married Maria Assunta Massarella on 2 Oct 1913. She was born on 11 June 1892, the daughter of Luigi Massarella and Francesca Mastrofrancesco.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? I'm stuck.
