lorenzo mattia, calabritto, italy

Postby gooditaliangal » 10 May 2012, 22:18

My grandfather, lorenzo Mattia, from Calabritto, Italy was born 9/26/1888, arrived Ellis Isl. 1/28/1914 and was single. He moved to Washington, D.C. and his occupation was a street gas lamp lighter. I understand he had multiple relatives in Italy. He married "sophia" (date of marriage and maiden name unknown). Childred listed in the 1920 Washington, D.C. census are: Alfanso (first born), Maria, Thomas, & Joseph Bernard (my father). The D.C. 1930 census added Frank (it might be) and a daughter something like Genavia? Both names hard to read. Some of the off spring moved to Maryland area. I am a beginner at trying to find out family history but on a real mission now. Thats all I have - H E L P if you know something TY:)
