Searching my relatives in New York

Postby ivana60 » 10 Sep 2011, 09:33

Please help me to find my relatives that arrived in NY in 1917. My grandmother's sister,CAROLINA AMATO,married (I believe..) a boy named GIUSEPPE RAPPAZZO: they came from Italy, from CANICATTI', Sicily.I remember also that an other relative was CALOGERO GIARDINA, that had a brother named PASQUALE GIARDINA.My mother was ROSARIA ZAGARA (died in 2007), daughter of FILOMENA AMATO and SALVATORE ZAGARA. FILOMENA AMATO (my grandma) was the CAROLINA AMATO's sister. The parents of FILOMENA AMATO and CAROLINA AMATO were ROSARIA MONCADO and CARMELO AMATO.I would like to know: CAROLINA AMATO had daughters or sons?? If yes, who are they? And these boys or girls had kids? What's their names? Thank you for all in advance, Luisa :)

Welcome to the website. Looking on the ship manifest for Carolina Amato she was single when she came over in Jan 12 1917 leaving her dad Carmelo in Canicatti going to see her aunt Carmela Moncado in New York. So Giueseppe Rapazzo and Carolina where married in the states. Did they settle in the New York?
