Bruno Immigration around 1896-1898

Postby aabruno » 26 Oct 2006, 19:22

Experts:

I need help in finding Immigration information of my great grandfather. I cannot find him in EllisIsland.
Name: Michelangelo Bruno
Born: 1862
From: Bella, Italia (Potenza, Basilicata)
In the 1920 and 1930 census (Conshohoken, PA) he goes by the name of Michael and it says he emigrated on 1896 and 1898, respectively.
I have not found him in the 1900 and 1910 census.
He might have come with his brothers Vicenzo (1860) and Antonio (1875).

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks
Anthony

Thanks for the help everyone. The 1910 census: yes, that might be him. thanks for finding the brothers. Any chance of finding the brother Antonio in 1910 and 1920? He married Carmina Iannarella and had a daughter Angela. I show him widowed in the 1930 census in Conshohoken, PA but I cannot find him before.

Thank you so much.

Anthony

Yes, I had him in the 1930 census. I just cannot find him in the 1920 and 1910 census although he came to the US in 1901.
Thanks!

Thanks nuccia, but I had the 1920 Michelangelo. And I don't think that is Antonio, his wife was Carmina and daughter was Angela.

I wonder if we can find his daughter Angela in 1920. Her husband is Biagio DeMedio. So she would be found as Angeline DeMedio and would have a son called Samuel V DeMedio. They might be in Conshohoken.

Again, thanks.

Anthony
