Busco Family - Cassamassima, Italy

Postby erwinl » 04 Apr 2012, 02:24

Hi
I just recently learned the names of my Great Grandparents Vito Lorenzo Busco and Maria Carmin Borraggine.
I know of four children Vito Santos, Beatrice, Guiseppe, and Domenichella.

My Great Grandparents remained in Italy as did Domenichella who I believe married Donato Fousoditura or he could be her son. Address : via Caracciolo #6 Cassamassima Bari, Italy . This info was found on my Grand Father's 7/24/1963 passport for his last visit to Italy. I was told Domenichella is deceased, I don't know the date. I do not speak or read Italian so I am hesitate to write to this old address (1963)

My Grandfather Joseph ( Guiseppe) born 4/1/1896 died 1965 immigrated to America 6/29/1913 age 17yrs.
Vito Santo (Willie) born 1890 died 1958 immigrated to America 6/18/1906 age 25 yrs.
Beatrice born 1893 died 1985 immigrated to America 2/15/1920 age 26 yrs.
Domenichella ???????????

In 1915 the Certificato Generale Tribunale di Bari states Al nome di Busco Guiseppe di o fu Vito Lorenzo e di o fu Borraggine Ma Carmin nat il 1 April 1896 in Cassamassima Provincia di Bari.

Ellis Island lists Cassamassima as all of their last place of residence.

I would love to know their parents, dates of birth, death marriage and any other information that could be found.
Thank you for any assistance given,
Lorraine
