De Francesco name

Postby italia742 » 09 Apr 2012, 19:00

I have been researching my family history for the past year. I have found a lot of records for my great great grandfather Ettore De Francesco but have gotten stuck when I hit Naples, Italy where I believe he is from. I have him immigrating from there in 1889 on the Furst Bismarck and arriving in Boston Sept. 25, 1889. If anyone could direct me on where to go from here I would be very greatful. Thank you for your consideration.
