Hello, According to a 1910 census, Rose, Nicola and Giacinta came to the US a couple years after Clemente. A possible 1900 ship manifest for son Nicola, traveling with mother, Rose and Giacinta (line 2,3,4)
First Name: Nicola Last Name: Berardi Ethnicity: Italy, Italian Last Place of Residence: Trivento Date of Arrival: Jul 06, 1900 Age at Arrival: 5Y Gender: M Marital Status: S Ship of Travel: Christiania Port of Departure: Naples Manifest Line Number: 0003 http://postimage.org/image/1uapxc3pg/
Thank you for your replies so far. I am trying to find out the pertinent dates for my Grandparents. I never had the pleasure of knowing my Granfather Clemente. Rose was my Grandmother with Berardo being her married name. She lived in Yonkers, N.Y. which is where I am originally from. My Mother, Christine Veronica Berardo, was born 3/3/26 in N.Y. When I get home I will double check on that year date.She had either 7 or 8 sisters & brothers. I am trying in vain to contact a cousin who can hopefully provide me with dates & info.
Thank you for the good clue about your Mother, Christine Veronica Berardo, born 3/3/26 in N.Y. Here are three possible census for your family if you haven't seen them.

This 1910 census is what led me to the ship manifest I posted earlier. First Name: Nicola Last Name: Berardi Ethnicity: Italy, Italian Last Place of Residence: Trivento Date of Arrival: Jul 06, 1900 Age at Arrival: 5Y Gender: M Marital Status: S Ship of Travel: Christiania Port of Departure: Naples Manifest Line Number: 0003 http://postimage.org/image/1uapxc3pg/
Trivento is the name of the comune they are coming from. They are going to visit husband and father, Clemente in Yonkers.
Paul, thank you so much!! The first census listing from 1930 is my family! With my Mother, Christine being the youngest @ 4 and listing my Aunt & Uncles also. Awesome! I am so happy to finally know what part of Italy my Grandparents were from. Where can I go from here? Was your main source for this the census bureau? I am new to all of this & unfortunately none of my Aunts, Uncles, or dear Mother are no longer living. I beat myself up for not knowing about my Italian heritage. My other half is Polish which I do have dates for my Grandmother but none for my Grandfather. I did not ever have the pleasure of knowing him either as he died very young in a mining accident in Pa.
Carmine, Tessa and others on this forum can offer good advice. I would suggest you first learn all you can about your family after they arrived in the US before you look for them in Trivento. You and your cousin will make a good research team.

Laura, Thank you so much for these links! I cannot express my joy in seeing the wedding photo of my Grandparents in my hometown newspaper! Priceless ♥ Also for my Grandmother's obituary listing. I remember that day, and I was 9 yrs. old. I will go onto the site that you mentioned when I get home from work. Thank you again, all of you, from the bottom of my heart!
Most people start with information around the home: family bibles, letters, passports, naturalization papers, school records, even notes on the backs of photos. You seem to be based in NY. Try going to the National Archives in Manhattan to check Census records & Immigration Manifests. They also have City Directories and Citizenship info. If they lived in Yonkers either a main library in Yonkers or Westchester (probably White Plains) could have information. Also if they had a house in Yonkers property records are in White Plains Land Records office in the Courthouse. There is a LDS Family History Center in Westchester.
