Just starting out

Postby Crash » 17 Oct 2015, 20:34

Hello everyone,

I apologize in advance if this is located in the wrong place. I'm just starting out working my way up my family tree. I BELIEVE that I've made to my great grandfather. It's kind of hard to get information as my grandmother who knew a lot passed away before I started this project, and no one else really remembers or knows. I've hit a roadblock, I think my great grandfather's name was Peter Cardone born in Naples, Napoli, Campania, Italy June 1st 1893. My grandfather Ernest was the only child I could find who was married to my grandmother Mary. Not looking for free handouts just some help or a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


Tommy

by marriage record, seeming he had a middle name also:
Nome: Pietro A Cardone
Sesso: Male
Data matrimonio: 10 Jun 1917
Luogo del matrimonio: Kings
Coniuge: Amelia Phillips
Numero certificato: 7798
Membri del nucleo familiare

Nome


Amelia Phillips
Pietro A Cardone

maybe his full name was Pietrantonio ( Pietro + Antonio) Cardone..
just a suggestion,

Thank for all the help and information. So if I'm reading this all correctly. Then Pietratomo Cardone from Pietrelcina Italy is my great grandfather Peter? As for the wife/wives? Is Amelia Mary? Or did he marry twice? Lol sorry it's all a bit confusing. But thanks again for all the help

Hi, I believe that Amelia and Mary was the same person, just she changed her first name in Mary...
