Family of Vincenzo A. Briscuso from Altofonte, Sicily

Postby sailorman43 » 26 May 2012, 10:24

Trying to find my fathers roots in Altofonte. Althought he was born in St. Louis, MO, (May 13, 1916) he moved back to Sicily with his parents when he was about 5 years old. I know his father's name was the same and his mother's madian name was Carmella Strano.

He returned to St. Louis alone on August 21, 1935 on the Italian ocean liner REX.

I have some of his old documents like his original US Passport.

Thanks
