Giovanni D'Antonio

Postby jcravi » 30 Jun 2016, 10:09

I'm looking for information on Giovanni D'Antonio born Jan. 10, 1885 in Angri, Italy. He married Elvira (no last name) on 9/09/1908 in Angri, Italy. Elvira was born on 6/02/1888 in Utiona, Italy. I cannot a record of that town but assume it was close to Angri. They emigrated to Brooklyn, NY 1910. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

No, but he filed a Petition for Naturalization which gave this information. I found it on Findmypast.com. Elvira's mat have been Columbo but I'm not sure.
