Hi

Are you looking to trace your family? or
Do you just want info on surname origin and about Salerno?

If the first, we will need more information. First names, birth dates or year,death info, marriage info, where family lived (USA?), immigration information> port of arrival? year?

What documentation on your family do you have?

Supply as much as you know, so we can look for existing records online or try to point you in the right direction.

Lots a wonderful people here with expertise to help! :) :)

Hi, My last name is Farina also and I was always told we were from somewhere around Naples, which is not far from Salerno. My great-grandfather's name was Francis Farina and was married to Philemona Caruso. I believe they were married in Italy then came to the US. I'm not sure when they came to the US, though. I'm pretty sure they did not come through Ellis Island. They first settled in Pennsylvania, then on to Detroit, Michigan. They had 7 children, 2 boys (one of which was my grandfather, also named Francis) and 5 girls.

I just found out today that my great grandfather was killed in Pennsylvania in a fireworks accident. I was also told that he had a brother named Joe. This is possibly an Americanized version of an Italian first name.

Please let me know if any of this applies to your search.

Hi Chris,

This maybe the 1910 census for your ggrandparents. Not sure 'cause of the name of his wife.

Let us know what you think.

Also, please provide birth year information.

There are 40 listings for Francisco Farina @ Ellis Island database.

Hope this helps.

Sorry, I can get to the page you sent the link to, but I cannot read it, it is not legible on my screen. The resolution of the document is too low. Any suggstions?

Also, I am very early on in my research so I do not have birthdates on my great grandparents, only grandparents birthdates at this stage. All of my older relatives (grandparents-great aunts or uncles) who would have that info are dead. I will be speaking to my aunts on this side of the family this week.

I'll post new info as I get it.

Thanks for your help!
