Interesting! I don't think it is him, but cannot be sure. My great grandfather was born in 1867, I think, and emmigrated to New York City (Scaffardi with 2 "ff"s). Some additional info might help. His wife's name was "Janelle"? and he came with two sons. My grandfather, Victorio, was born in New York in 1894.


How did you find this record?!

Do you know of any good geneology services in Italy that can help trace his birth certificate?

I think that you may have found him. The census record is definitley him.

There was an odd thing in one of the census records showing a later born child being born in Italy, which may indicate he came over more than once.

My materials are at the office, but I'll check tomorrow. Thanks!

Stoney, you're very welcome.
Added another record for your grandfather above
(record of birth).
For your g-grandfather Pietro's Italian records,
need town of birth - all records are kept at the
local level in Italy.
Perhaps some of the above records may reveal that
information?

The right spell is Scaffardi, and Albano is a hamleth of Varsi town, so really the record found by vj is right! Regards, suanj
