Looking for Dondero/Servo in Genoa.

Postby Jan202044 » 20 Apr 2012, 06:27

I need help searching for anestors in Genoa. This is all of what I have so far. My grandparents, Louis P Servo DOB 08/23/1898 and Mary E Servo DOB 03/05/1900 along with a 11 mo old child (my aunt)Gloria Servo left on SS Colombo from the port of Genoa on 06/26/24 to Ellis Island, NY. The ships manifest shows parents of Louis P Servo, mother Catherine Dondero (widow)and showing her DOB 1864, no father name listed. I am guessing Catherine Dondero stayed in Genoa as she was not listed on the manifest. They had 3 more children in the US, Louis P Servo Jr in 1926, my mother Dorothy M Servo in 1928, and Charles Servo in ?? Any help would be greatly appreciated !!!!

I want to thank you for all the help and information you have found in such a short time. I am soaking it up. Not sure why the older generations are not so informative to pass on genealogy history to the family. I am so interested in my italian ascestors and wondering do I have living realatives in Italy. I never knew my g-father Louis P Servo had a younger brother named Andrew Servo here in the US which no one ever spoke of...wondering if any living family on that side. Now also wondering if I have any living family in Italy from Catherine Dondero in my g-mother side and/or from Carolina Valinotto mother of g-father side. Keep in info coming if available....it is GREATLY APPRICATED!!
