Hi, I don't know if anyone here can help with this one. Looking for my great grandfather's family. His name was Francesco Marotta, born in Italy May 4,1879. He came to America around 1893 (although I have no proof, just what it says on the 1920 census) He married Pasqualina Milone in 1904 in NYC. (I have that record)(I also have all the records on the Milone's thanks to people here) He died in Jersey City, NJ in 1948. I have his death certificate. I also have his WWI & WWII draft cards. His parent's names were Antonio Marotta and Maria P (can't read it) maybe paollela. I have no idea where they came from. I'm trying to find his birth certificate. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
