I have just started looking for our family's ancestors. I am looking for the family of Thomas (Tomasso) Capraro born in 1882 and emigrated to Utica, NY in the early 1900'S. His wife was Josephine ( Pepina) Flori, daughter of Serafino and Angela Menna Flori. Aquino is the area we were told to look in. Can anyone help? Thanks

Hello,
here there is Tommaso Capraro ship manifest, from Aquino,leaves at home wife "Peppina" Capraro

page 1

page 2

If you need to know the right date of birth, and parents names of Tommaso and Giuseppa write , in Italian, a request to obtain their birth certificate to Aquino civil record office

Comune
Ufficio di Stato civile
Piazza Municipio
CAP 03031
Aquino (FR) Italy

or write to Archivio di Stato di Frosinone

http://wwwdb.archivi.beniculturali.it/S ... OSINONE%22

or rent Aquino civil record microfilms to FHL (mormon church)

Here's a partial obituary of their son

Thursday, September 23, 2004
John T. Capraro, Sr. of Utica
Mr. John T. Capraro Sr., age 82, of Utica, passed away on Monday, September 20, 2004, at St. Luke's Memorial Hospital Center. His family tended him with great love and compassion during his illness. Born in Utica on June 24, 1922, John was the son of the late Thomas and Josephine (Flori) Capraro. He was raised and educated locally....


I liked this part the best...

Sharing an inseparable relationship characterized by their love and dedication, John and Mamie have created a life filled with happiness, dancing and devotion to one another and to family.


It is a detailed Obituary.... I will send it to you by private message...

note: on page 2 of Riccardo's found manifest - Tomaso was joining brother Francesco in Utica.
This Tomaso appears to be too old to be a match tho.
Also Tomaso (1882) didn't arrive until 5 May 1910,
this census page was taken on April 19th.
This Tomaso may be a cousin?
