We need alot more information to answer that question. Was he born in Italy? If so do you know the name of the town?

Normally abandoned infants were presented to the mayor or offical of vital records and "given" a name.

Try and give us some more information.

he was born in Soglinano....Parma. He was fostered out to a family named Gabella. he had the opportunity to look for his mother and he declined.....and, sadly, now he is gone.

his name is either Massimo or Michele Mazziotti and he was born
May 29 1865. He was raised by a family named Boselli. and many of them emgrated to the united states. he considered them to be his family.

Hi leann,

Not sure with the info even if this is your grandfather.

http://www.ellisislandrecords.org/searc ... 2234060392

Michele Massimo, age 42, arrived 5/23/1906 Ship: S.S. Indiana
POD: Napoli
Going to his borthor's in Coatsville, PA. Sorry, can't read brother's name

This is Ellis Island, which is a free site, but must register.

Let us know if this is him. If yes, we can look for census records
Researching in San Vitaliano, Napoli, Italy & Armento, Potenza, Italy.

Hi I can across this website and though what the heck might as well see if i can get any info that i didn't know about my family, my last name is marzziotti which is quite close and i also remember my father told me when his grandfather came over from Italy it was originally mazziotti or marziotti but he also said my family is from Calabria so i dont know if that helps
