At a dead end... with Giovanni Martino

Postby brendamartino » 09 Feb 2015, 15:12

Good morning. By chance yesterday I found my grandfather's brother, who I have not had anything on, except his birth record from Calvi Risorta.
He came to the US sometime after 1900, got married in Boston in 1907, then has just disappeared. :(
I know this:

Giovanni Olindo Amilcare Martino b. 27 June 1887 to Giuseppe and Assunta Palmieri Martino, in Petrulo, Calvi Risorta.
Married Assunta Nazzarro- aged 17, on 18 August 1907.

My grandfather and his older sister also came over to the US later on, but didn't stay in touch with Giovanni, and I would like to find his descendants.
Any ideas on where to search? Thank you.

Thank you, that more than likely is him.... I believe I transcribed the birth record from Italian myself, so may have got the birth date wrong. Everything else fits though...sadly, divorced and unemployed, I wonder if I'll ever find out what happened to him.
Thanks for looking for me!

Thanks, that's exciting! I gave up my Ancestry membership though, so I can't access it, is there anything else I should know, or is there somewhere else I can see it? Thank you so much, I haven't been able to find anything about him!
