Galgano-Bellezza

Postby barbaralee1983 » 03 Feb 2014, 05:19

I am trying to find the ancestors of Michele Archangel Galgano and Raphaella Bellezza. I do not know what year that they emigrated from Italy to the U.S. I believe that they may have come from Calitri.They had at least one child born in Chicago, Illinois, USA about 1884. His name was Guiseppe but he went by Joseph.

Any information on these Italian emigrants would be greatly appreciated

Do not know if you have this death record from Chicago.
You can see from his posted DOB that many US records have inaccuracies (transposed numbers in year)

Based on this possible 1910 Census record in Chicago... Giuseppe was born in Italy - AND - he had a sister Lillian :-) They list their immigration as 1890.
Mother is not listed in the census, but Michele states that he is married...
