Thank you so much for all of this information.
Could you tell me what does it mean beside Howard name 5/12 (maybe 5 months old)?
So does this mean all this information relates to Joseph G. Tornese and Ida Tornese?
When a number is listed beside the naturalization record, petition #, etc. can I do more research with those numbers.
I will show my family the information and try to put all of it together. I will also check out the website you listed.
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you again for this information

If you go to your local Family History Center you can order the film for the Philadelphia marriage application.

Hello, I have a few questions? If you are unable to answer them I understand. In the information you sent my you stated that another son died in 1913 that was Joseph. Who and when did the another son die? The one site I went into is in Italian, any suggestions on how to get it in English? Any suggestion on how to find Guiseppe Tornese parents information in English if they were born in Italy. I am not sure where to go for this info?

Thank you
