Zavettieri surname from Roghudi, Calabria

Postby lavettre » 28 Nov 2005, 07:36

My grandfather, Angelo Bruno Zavettieri, was born in Roghudi in 1892, and came to North America around 1907. He came as a stowaway to New York, worked his way to Canada, joined the military and served in France & England during WWI. By 1916, he was in Lakewood, New Jersey. He had four brothers who remained in Italy. Although, we understood that one brother may have immigrated to South America. I would apprecaite any information that is available about the area, the surname, possible relatives, etc...

The surname was changed - reason unknown - to Lavettre, during Angelo's time in Canada.

Thanks.
