Looking for information on Anthony Arbige, my father.

Postby sledhead » 23 Jan 2006, 06:08

[align=justify]Looking for information on my father, Anthony Arbige. I believe that he was born in Naples, Italy in 1900 and came to Providence, Rhode Island the same year. He died in 1940. We moved to Iowa in 1945 when I was eight and have had little contact with my father's family. I have little information as my mother was very secretive and claimed my father's family would not recognize her because see was divorced. About ten years ago I made several contacts but lost all of the information during a divorce. To the best of my knowledge, I am my father's only offspring.
Thanks, Bob

Any clues as to who his parents were??

I know your info is limited... but we've researched many people who's info was limited... and managed to do... just fine... this forum has a great team.

Do you think you were named after your Grandfather?

Maria has asked questions to help find on-line information about your fathers past.

Have you tried the on-line phone book?

There are several Arbige listed in Rhode Island. Perhaps some phone calls will help you find cousins or other living family member.

Heres a couple of census I saw but the dates are off. They were the only ones I could see and perhaps can help you. Could be family!
