Finding Descendants of Great Grandfather's Sister

Postby EMTLP » 16 Apr 2015, 17:29

I am interested in finding descendants of my great grandfather's sister listed in his obituary as a Mrs. Paulo LoRusso. Her maiden name would also be LoRusso as her parents were Francesco LoRusso and Carminella Nardozzi.

My grandfather Vincenzo Lorusso was born 7 Sept 1873 and d. 8 Oct 1952. The obituary states that he left a sister Mrs. Paulo Lorusso in Italy. Unfortunately I have no idea what her first name might have been. My guess is that she was born about 1870 if she is the oldest child because her parents were both born in 1850. She died after 1952?

Open to suggestions to research this further.
Thanks,
Eileen

Yikes, Yes my grandfather was born in Avigliano, Potenza, Italy. I don't know how I omitted that fact. He died in Waterbury, CT.

Any chance that her name was actually Paola LoRusso and the final vowel in her given name was just a typo?

You might look in the year indexes of birth for children of Francesco Lorusso.
The problem is that birth registers seem to be out of place.
