Lepri

Postby mtballard » 14 Sep 2004, 03:19

Need help in locating g-grandfather info. His name was Giuseppe Lepri. His alien registration papers list Senia, Rome, Italy as his place of birth. I can't find Senia. I'm thinking maybe it should be Segni. He was born in April of 1890. Came to America approximately 1906. He went to Lake Village, Arkansas as a farmer. He married Maria Massanelli and they moved to the Pine Bluff, Arkansas area. He died December 1979 at the age of 89. I can not find him through ellis island. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Trish

Go to Family History Library of Mormon church for micorfilm of Segna civil records 1815 to 1911 and see if he was born there and, if so, you can trace his entire family back to 1815. The other route is to go to social security detah indiex and pay $300.00 for a coipy of his oorignal social security application which wiull contain the vitals as to place of birth. Peter

Thank you peter and suanj! I am going to get the local LDS branch to order the microfilm. Maybe I can find out who his parents and siblings were.

As there are no Lepri's now in Segni, please let me suggest you to try Siena. May be at the time it was not easy to explain where one was from, and the area was very approximated, so it might be worth try.

well: for your question, my reply, always is: the just town is Segni, why are wrote Senia, Roma, and means Senia(Segni) in Roma province.
Now: Siena town is also very ancient province itself(Siena town in Siena province).
Just not are currently lepri persons living in Segni, but are many(162 families)Lepri people living in all Roma province
