Welcome to the forum.
Are you looking for American relatives or Italian?

Do you need ship's manifest or census information? If you tell us a little more about the kind of information you need someone can help.

Was Antonio's wifes name Filomenna? Did they live in Philadelphia?

I am planning a visit to Italy June 2009. I would love to find any relatives that still live there.

My grandmothers name was Teresa. Her maiden name was Mercuri.

Here are the listings for Leone's in Nicastro. There are two pages so make sure to scroll to the bottom to go to page 2. You can do the same thing for the surname Mercuri.

This will give you the names and addresses of your possible relatives still there. You can write to them, let them know who you are and find out if you're related.......let them know you're coming.

Biff...thank you for the WWI draft card.

That is Great Grandpa Tony. The birthdate and wife matches.

I never heard anyone mention that he registered.

Thanks again.
Looking for my Italian ancestors: Leone, Mercuri, Butera. They are form Catanazaro, Italy.
