Looking for Info on Pizza Family in Avellino

Postby RinaB » 30 Aug 2014, 02:18

My Great Grandparents immigrated to America in 1910. They were both born in Avellino, Italy. So far I haven't had any luck finding the ship they crossed on, or any genealogical data from Italy.
If anyone knows any info on the following individuals heritage I wouls appreciate the help!

Alex Pizza born in 1888 in Avellino, Italy
Angela Pizza born on April 12, 1888 (1883?) in Avellino, Italy
and their son
John Pizza born in 1900 (1899?) in Avellino, Italy

They immigrated to America and settled in Illinois where they had 5 more children.
Thanks
