Hi fiteni,

In order to find anyone in Italy, you need to know the town of origin.

Was your friend, L Candreva or his father or grandfather born in Italy?

Hi Ester,

Does your friend know what his great grandfathers name was? This is a list of all the CANDREVA's coming through Ellis Island..

There are quite a few so without a first name it would be a quessing game!

We'll wait for more from you to continue, ok?
