Need helping finding my Italian heritage!! :)

Postby collmacob » 19 Jan 2014, 21:41

So, I've always been told that my family, McMahon, was from Irish dissent. However, after researching we have found that we are also Italian!! I've been searching and searching to find where my relative is from but I don't know where else to turn. His name on the 1920 US Census is Tony Scaberdine. We know that he was born in 1882, married a woman named Mary (from illinois) and they had 6 children. He immigrated to the US in 1890. How can I find him?? Any suggestions?? THANK YOU!!
