Help please

Postby StefJo » 18 Nov 2005, 13:49

I am trying to find any living relatives still living in Italy. My Great-granfather changed his surname when he immigrated circa 1890's

It was either Stefe, or maybe Stefano

His family was from Novara I think.

Hi StefJo,

As Suanj pointed out we need more information to help you. Have you found this ancestor on the 1930 census? It will give a year of immigration and naturalization status. If you need help locating this record please post the first and last name of the person, date of birth, and city and state they lived in 1930, along with names of children. From there we can also look for a passenger arrival record.

Genealogy is best done starting with the know facts and working backwards. It will be a difficult search without knowing where in Italy they were from or the original surname.
