Need help

Postby Cndy2012 » 08 Apr 2012, 22:03

My grandfather came to New York from Sicily in 1911 with his mother to meet his father who arrived the previous year. His mother died in childbirth that same year. My grandfather only has information from when he was investigated for being Italian during WWII. Supposedly his father died in 1915 in New York City but a search in the expected district yielded no death certificates for him. We appear to be at a dead end. Can anyone make suggestions where I might look for information next?
