My grandfather Arcangelo Damiano arrived in the USA in May 1905. He was 7 years old. The ship manifest says the his last place of residence was S. Lorenso Benevento. He came with his mother Concetta, and siblings Andrea, Pompilia, and Laura. They went straight to Philadelphia to meet up with the father Giovanni Damiano.
Arcangelo passed away right before i was born, but I have many photo's of him. I would love to know more about the family and why they came to the USA. My mothers memory is fading and can remember little that far back. I do know quite a bit on what happened to the family members once here in the USA of course, and could be source of information for the Damiano's in Italy.
