Re: Looking for Information on Donato Benedetto

Postby mario26@talktalk.net » 10 Mar 2014, 21:47

Hello. I am looking for any information on my grandfather Donato Benedetto. Information that I have places him in Forenza, Basilicata Region, in the Potenza province.He left from Napoli, Italy, his date of arrival in Ellis Island, New York, was the 19th of November 1901, Donato was 26 years old, he had a brother called Rocco in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that is where he went from Ellis Island, I know that Donato Benedetto returned to Forenza Italy (I do not know when)!
He died in Forenza.
I am looking for all Benedetto family members in Pennsylvania or around.

Any information or leads would be greatly appreciated!

Dear Adelfio, Thank you very much for your help,time & effort.I confirm that He is my Nonno (Grandfather) Donato, I did mention all your information to my mum Ermenia (90 years old) and she also told me that he lived for 20 years in Pittsburgh with his brother Canio Benedetto and the other brother Rocco Benedetto (the youngest of the 3 brothers)went to California, Canio Benedetto had 5 children at that time.

My Nonno Donato died in Forenza in 1956. I would like to track my 2 Pro zio (Grand-Uncles) children
that is my challenge, so that I can make my Mum happy.

I appreciate your help.

With my warmest regards,

Mario Iasi
