Looking for Persico ancestors

Postby persicoseeker » 17 Apr 2012, 04:51

Hello,

I have been trying to track down my great-great grandparents in Italy. I only have the names of their son Guiseppe Persico. He arrived in New York on July 21, 1913 from Italy aboard the SS Mendoza. Guiseppe ( Joseph ) was born around 1898, we think they may be from St. Agnello Italy. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You.

Hi JoAnn,

from the 1913 arrival manifest you can see that Giuseppe's father name was Luigi because he stated that his nearest relative in Italy was his father in Sant'Agnello... He stated also that he was joining his brother Luigi in the U.S.

There's another interesting arrival manifest...

13 june 1912

Persico Rosa, age 17, single, place of birth and last residence in Italy Sant'Agnello, leaving in Italy her father Luigi, joining her sister Maria in NY

Maybe a possible sibling?

Thank you Laura! This really helped me put more pieces together. I hadn't thought about siblings so thank you for including the information about Rosa.

Sant'Agnello, comune of ELICE - province: Pescara - region: Abruzzo
Sant'Agnello, comune of Sant'Agnello - province: Napoli - region: Campania

Is there any other information about Luigi who stayed in Italy. Maybe who he was married to and when they were born and died?

Thank you,

J. Persico(seeker)
