Hi There,

Here is the manifest for Giuseppe and Angela coming into the USA in 1900 through Ellis Island. They are going to go see Giuseppe's brother, Rocco in New York.

click here for manifest

The manifest states they are from Potenza. Most of the people on Ellis Island with the surname - Vendegna, all state they are from Potenza.

Now the Family History Center does have microfilm for the town of Potenza. The film costs $5.75 a roll. Here is the link for the film numbers.

I hope this helps some,

There are several memebers here qualified to help you with your research or you can choose to view the towns microfilm through the Family History Center closest to you.

In fairness to all our members I choose not to endorse any one person.

If you read through our threads you will find several researchers and genealogists...the only advice I can give to you is to make sure you ask for their qualifications and ask for rates up front before choosing anyone.

I wish you luck in your search and let us know if we can assist you in any other way.

Hi Nuccia,

Thank you for posting the records for me. It will help the poster with locating information on his family.

An example will be that he can obtain the Naturalization records for Giuseppe for Giuseppe Petitioned for Naturalization per the 1920 census.

Thanks again for posting the records.

Hey Ralph! here I am ten years later looking around for the same info, since I'm planning on visiting Potenza in September. Look what else I found http://genealogy.bio/potenza/f836.html
Looks like Guiseppe and Arcangela got married 2/15/1900.
