LOOKING FOR RELATIVES RUSSO/Capasso near FRAGOLA

Postby merusso4 » 22 Mar 2007, 16:47

Hi everyone-

My grandfather's mother and father are originally from Fragola near Naples. I am looking for relatives. He is 89 years of age right now and his parents passed young so we are looking for any possible relatives. He is very curious and i am helping him out. His mother was named Elizabeth Capasso. Her father was Ralph Capasso who came here in the late 1800's. His father, was James Russo, who immigrated to the US alone in approx. 1918. He is also from the same town. Any information or possible relatives out there??

I also found your ggrandfather's WWI draft registration card and it shows that he was married to Elizabeth at that time. It also states that he was a quarryman and his birthday was October 6, 1885.

Use this link to locate possible relatives in Italy.

http://www.paginebianche.it/index.html

Insert the surname and province and see how many hits you get.

As for the images of the WW1 Registration Cards, I would be happy to link the images here if you like.

Thanks John,

I was just noticing that! :oops: I haven't read through the replies but are we answering in only one thread or are we answering both? If you've posted more info on the other thread then I will follow your lead and post there.

mjones,

Great finding of info! Are you able to link any images? If you are interested, heres a tutorial I wrote on how to us Imageshack to upload images.

http://italiangenealogy.tardio.com/Foru ... shack.html

Let me know if you find it helpful at all! :D

Nuccia,

I've been posting on the other thread. I posted a link to the image of the 1920 census that mjones found. Valarie has posted the WWI Draft card for Jame Russo.
