Looking For relatives of Giuseppe Procopio in the US

Postby parretta » 06 Jul 2007, 20:09

I am looking for relatives of my uncle, Giuseppe Procopio. he immigrated to the US in the early 1900's. he was born in Isca Sullo Ionio. I know that he had a grand child who was born either in 1959 or 1960. i know that he passed away in the 1970's in or near philadelphia. If you know someone who's last name is a Procopio, let me know.

Andy,

Many library systems have a version of Ancestry which you can access at a branch location as long as you have a valid, local library card. Likewise, many systems have Heritage Quest which can be remotely accessed via the system's website. Give your library a call to see what might be available.

Hey guys,

My father gave me a picture of my uncle, his wfi, and their grandchild. It was taken in 1960. Maybe this picture can help me locate my uncle's family. The grandchild wouldbe about 47 years old now.

Anyways, let me know how I can use this photo to find his family.

Andy.

I don't know if this will be any help but my great grandmother was Catherine Procopio. She married Dominick Gidaro in Isca Sullo Ionio and than immigrated to Kulpmont, PA. I am in the middle of researching my family and I found her obituary which stated that she had a brother living in Kulpmont also named Vincenzo. I don't know very much about him and neither does the Gidaro side of the family that is still living. I hope that maybe this little bit of info will help.

1930 Census of Vandergrift Heights, Westmoreland, Pennsylvania

Household Members: Name Age
Tony Procopio 32 year of immigration 1898
Taressi Procopio 31 year of immigration 1909
Joseph Procopio 11 year of immigration 1909

The age is right for Giuseppe Procopio (Joseph). I will check on the Ellis Island sight for his manifest.

Hey Guys,

I don't think the death record matches the person I am referring to. My uncle emigrated to the united states between 1900 and 1920, between the ages of 18 and 21. I guess he was born in the late 1880's , eaely 1890's. It is not possible that he was 11 years old in 1909. Also, He was single when he arrived in the united states. I know that he got married and had children because I have a photo of him and his wife, along with his grand child taken in 1960. Therefore, I know that the grandchild was born in 1959 or 1960. This grandchild qould be about 47 years old today.

Thanks,

Andy

After further resaerch, I have found out that Giuseppe Procopio emigrated to the United States at the age of no older than 20 years old. Also, his father's name was Andrea and mother's name was Rosina.

Birth: unknown - between 1880 and 1890
Father's name: Andrea Procopio
Mother's name: Rosa Procopio
Immigration age: <20 years old
Immigration state: Pensylvania
Death Date: between 1973 and 1975

** In February 1960, I have a picture of this man holding his grandchild. I can't tell whether it is a boy or a girl. However, the baby in the picture cannot be more than a few months old. Therefore, if we assume this child was born in 1959, it is possible that it carries the name Procopio(If this child's father is the Giuseppe Procopio's son). **

With this new information know, how can I get in contact with damily members.

thanks,
Andy

My g grandfather married a Marie Teresa Procopio. She was born around 1882 in Italy. His name is Antonio Rosati. Her parents are most likely John and Marianna - any thing match?
