Francesco Di Santo and Raffaela Pepe in Foggia

Postby KevinO » 23 Jul 2014, 04:19

Hello,

Francesco Di Santo (or DeSanto) and Raffaela Pepe are my great great grandparents and are from Foggia. They had a son named Domenico Di Santo (or DeSanto) that was born on 28/7/1894. I am looking for any documentation or information on Francesco and Raffaela such as death records, a marriage record, and if they had any other children. Domenico died in Chicago in 1964 and both of his children (my grandmother and uncle) have passed away; I have searched and maintained as much as possible but there are no documented conversations/testimonials of Domenico's parents and/or potential siblings (I am not even sure if Francesco or Raffaella stayed in the US).

Thanks to any and all who can lend insight!

His birth record can be found on microfilm. Order from www.familysearch.org and search the film at one of their centres. There are translations and tips on my website.

Hello,

I appreciate you helping me with this!

The Domenico DeSanto in the 1900 census is not my great grandfather; my great grandfather was born on 7/28/1894. Another user help validate some information on Domenico in a different post accessible by the following link.

Thanks again.

Kevin
