looking for zito/petri information

Postby tosani » 15 Mar 2006, 11:00

I am trying to collect some info on my grandparents. I know that my great granparents were born in Italy, Zitos in Naples and Petri in Tuscany, or so I've been told. My grandpas family came to Magnolia, Ohio and had a large family (he has 14 siblings). My grandmas family stayed primarily in New York, her mother passed away when she was 8 and she was sent to Akron, Ohio to live with her aunt, Bianca Petri who was from Pisa. Any information will be so greatly appreciated!

There is more to be discovered for these persons, I did not locate a manifest for Bianca, her husband and Lena Zito......

Thank you for sending once again the letter to Zani, my Aunt Kathrine will be here to attend a wedding in April, she speaks the Italian very well.......perhaps we will call Zani.......
Hugs...

Prospero travels with Carmela Marino, age 26, joining husband, and Michele Pappano Marino, age 2, joining father, all from same town......so I think you are right Suanj, the name is Pappano.

I'm not sure what to make of this, found it at Ancestry, mentions Prosper Zito..............interesting.........
