Eugenio Benti

Postby Rita4 » 17 May 2014, 15:35

HI! I'm Rita and I'm looking for the brother of my granmother.

His name was Ermenegildo Benti and he went in the U.S.A. around 1904/1905.
We was born in Italy, in Cenate Sotto - Bergamo.

He sent letters to his family for some years, than nothing any more.
He had an argument with his big brother...that is also the reason of his leave.

Can you help me?
Thank's

Welcome :D

Is the given name EUGENIO or ERMENEGILDO? Your post lists one and the title lists another.

Can you tell us a bit more about him?

WHERE were the letters posted from in USA? - Can you give us a name of a state?

About what year was he born?
Do you know the names of his parents?

T.
