relatives in Pollina

Postby grem » 28 Nov 2006, 22:14

:roll: [b]My grandfather's name was Giovanni Battaglia and he had one brother, that I know of, named Francesco. My grandfather was born 8 Feb 1898, in Pollina I think, and he came to the US in approx 1910. I am searching for relatives of both the Battaglia family and the Serio family, my grandmother's maiden name. Any help is so very welcome! Thanks

Link for 1920 Census for Frank..

1920 Census

Census resized:

Larger 1920 Census for Frank and Family

His mother and siblings are not listed at this address in the Census. Family could have moved or have been out of town..John lists in the 1930 Census that he married when he was 23 which would be about 1920 and by 1930 he owns the very house that Frank is living in.
