Vinciguerra

Postby JohnVinci » 14 Nov 2013, 02:25

Hello, looking to see where my great grandfather was from in Italy. His name was Daniel Vinciguerra, my grandfather was Joseph Oreste Vinciguerra. Any ideas or help would be great. I'm heading to Italy for Two weeks soon. Thanks

Could this be the family in the 1920 US Census - residing in New Jersey?
And did they ever reside in Massachusetts?

This Daniel is listed as a Blacksmith. Children Michael and Joseph are listed as born in Massachusetts; the other children are listed as born in New Jersey...
Daniel lists his immigration as 1898 and Naturalization in 1910.

They leave Donato/Daniel's mother LUCIA VIESTI in San Bartolomeo in Galdo, Italy :-)
