Pizzimenti & Capriotti

Postby tiffanypizzimenti » 29 May 2016, 23:59

Looking for information for my family tree. My great-grandfather was Michael (possibly Michele) Pizzimenti and his family was from Calabria. I believe that his father's name was Frank (Francesco).

My great-grandmother's name was Palmino Capriotti and she was from San Benedetto del Tronto.

Both of them came to the U.S. in very early 1900. I have had a really difficult time finding information on their parents/grandparents, etc.

If anyone has any information that will help me, I would greatly appreciate it. :D

Thank you for all the responses. These are my GGparents and all of the information you guys have posted is correct (or at least matches the information I have). I am hoping to find leads on their parents. I will definitely check with Cook county on the marriage records to see if maybe they have the parents names listed . Thank you so much!
