Who knows a Martinelli?

Postby mgonzales » 07 Aug 2006, 23:31

I have been working on a family tree and trying to locate any relatives in Reggio Calabria. My great grandfather Joseph Martinelli and his wife Rose Pecoraro came from there. Can anyone help?

Have you identified the exact town of origin? Located ship manifest?
Any documentation or records? By providing more detail, full names, dates of birth, children's names.......records can be located to help you further your search.....in which US state did they reside?

My family tells that my Great Grandfather Joseph was Murdered by the Mafia in Pueblo. But all I know is that he came From Reggio Calabria. Does anyone have a census of Pueblo With his name and family? Thanks
