Guarascio/Guarashio/Wash Ancestry Help

Postby jjk_16_21 » 24 Feb 2006, 13:11

I am trying to find information on my Great Grandfather that came over from San Giovanni in Fiore, Calabria on December 01, 1913. I sent ut a FOIA request for his Immigration papers. I know that in the 1920 Census, his family is under Tom and Mary Wash in Clarksburg, West Virginia. My Grandfathers name is Giuseppe Guarascio. All of his records in the USA have him listed as Guarashio. His parents are Thomas Guarascio and Anna Maria Secreti. Giuseppe was born on May 23rd 1904. I was hoping someone can do a search under the 1930 census for Tom Guarascio and Anna Maria Guarascio in West Virginia and Detroit. And then for Joe Guarashio in WV and Detroit. Thanks alot!!!!!

Guarascio was also changed to Warash. Be sure to search for this variation as well.

yourTommaso was born in 1874 and this is the ship's manifest of 1903

Anna Maria Secreti wife and Salvatore and Giuseppe children cames in 1913

also I found:

I think this also interesting... but since this moment no luck for 1930 census in WV or MI... regards, suanj

(sorry suanj... looks like we posted at the same time!)

Please note that there is mention of a step brother Audia Luigi... (can check further if you wish)

looks like he's travelled with other people with a connection to Audia..

(surname Audia is common in the town of S. Giovanni)

Giuseppe's wife name is Rosie Scarcelli. She was born in West Virginia in 1911. Her Parents are from San Giovanni in Fiore and are Giuseppe Scarcelli and Barbara Laquinto??? I am not sure on the correct spelling of the maiden name. Giuseppe Guarascio, is my Great Grandfather. I already have their Ship Manifest. I am just trying to make sure my G-Grandfather did not get Naturazlized before my grandmothers birth. I know in the 1920 Census the family is under Tom Wash and Mary Wash.
