Bruno/Marrazzo

Postby lamanfre » 02 Aug 2011, 21:01

I'm researching my family history but I can't find anything about my Italian ancestors. My grandfather Stephano Bruno was born in Montecorvino Pugliano in February, 1892. His father was Vito Bruno and his mother was Teresina Marrazzo. Stephano came to the United States in 1911 but I can't find any immigration record. Family lore says he had half-brothers named Gallo. Any suggestions on how to proceed with my research is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Lee

Hello and welcome to the forum! :-)

What records have you already located?

Can you tell us where in US Stephano settled? Names of wife and children?

Any details you can provide will help our search.

If you can get his naturalization papers, you will have a copy of the "Certificate of Arrival" which will give the ship name and port of entry.
