Trying to find info on where my family is from

Postby Hkhildebrandt » 03 Nov 2015, 06:18

My grandma's name is Marjorie bell (formerly belluscio). Her father was Lincoln belluscio, mother: Beatrice digianni (spelling? Also later changed). They lived in Rye, NY. I know that Lincoln's father was Michael belluscio from potenza, italy- married to Mary barbero. But we do not know anything about my great grandma's side- Beatrice digianni. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
