Birth records for Cristofaro Spano and his wife, Anna (Maggione) Spano

Postby scipriani » 31 Dec 2015, 15:35

I have been at this for years even sending to Italy for help but since I can't speak or read Italian I can only assume it said "records not found". I assume that because it was in letter form and not any thing that looked like a document.

These people are my Great Grandparents.

before America Cristofaro Spano (after arrival it became Christopher)

Cristofaro Spano
B: 30 Jul 1873
D: 5 Jun 1943

According to census records he comes from Trapani Sicily and arrived in the U.S Jan 27 1908

My Great Grandmother is Anna Spano
B. 19 Mar 1882 in Alsace-Lorraine (according to census records)
D: Jun 1966 in Rutherford NJ

she, along with their two children arrived through Ellis Island on 4 Nov 1908.

I have not been able to find anything before they stepped off that ship at Ellis Island. I have tried to find a birth record but I'm up against the wall for a long time.

Please help!!??
