Looking for information on my grandfather Thomas Capurso. I know he was born in Feb of 1889 in Italy. I believe he came to America in1910. He served in the American Army. I also found a Nicholas Capurso living at the same address 210 Flushing Ave in Astoria about 1917.

Great gets T. :)

Our poster kat should be very happy. There's another thread on her grandmother Maria Urgo's side. I've been trying to locate Tommaso and Maria's marriage record since they both were from one of the boroughs in New York, but no luck. Same goes for 1920 census information on her or Tommaso.

Yes, I saw that thread, but like you had no success finding marriage or census. :(

while searching ny marriage records I found Mary Urgo and Vincent Azzalo cert.#6643 fro 14 Feb 1915 also cert.# 2856 for 21 Jan 1915 both from Manhattan, NY. Don't know if this is my grandmother or not. I do know it could be another Mary Urgo.

In order to determine if that is your GM you will need to request it from NYC Vital Records for a fee... I think it is about $15
