Boscacci Family Help

Postby NCJE2910 » 14 Apr 2011, 20:48

Im looking for some info about my aunt, uncle anc cousins. My aunt was Helen Chirico Boscacci. She was born in 1904 and died about 1982. She was born in NY but lived in California (Alameda and San Joaquin) since she was little. Im not 100% sure of her husband's name, although I assume it was William. She had a son William L. Boscacci, born January 1924. Hope someone can help me out and thanks so much,
Nick

1910 (San Francisco) and 1920 (Oakland) US census. In 1910, Helen Chirico was apparently attending a catholic boarding school, so she was enumerated there.

Hi

My Grandparents on my mothers side have the family name Boscacci. From what I have been told the two married brothers immigrated to the US in the early 20th Century (California - Fort Bragg). My grandparents did not enjoy the US and then immigrated to Australia (North Queensland - Townsville/Ingham area). This is where most of the relatives still reside and I was born. I am happy to make contact with any relatives etc.

My Grandparents are Filomena (nee NONELLA) & Enrico Boscacci.
