Biango

Postby biango2 » 15 Jan 2008, 05:02

Hi everybody,
I just joined and was hoping anyone out there can help in my search. I've been doing a little research on my grandparents names and I'm a little stuck on my own last name. My last name is Biango and I'm pretty sure it was modified from Bianco. I am pretty certain my great great grandfather immigrated from Italy and was born roughly around 1875. His name was Giovanni and I have a feeling he was from Calabria. I know there probably was a few Giovanni Biancos, but is there any way to find out what town my family came from?? I am going to Italy to study and would love to visit my roots. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Jon

Welcome to ItalianGenealogy!!
By providing a few more details members can better direct your search.
Where did the family immigrate to? City in which they resided? Full name of wife, known maiden name? Date of marriage? Where were they married? Full name of any known children? Where were the children born? Known birthdates?
All these little details will help locate the info you need!!

OK
After doing a little more research I found that my relatives resided in Weehawken, NJ. I believe that my great great grandmother's maiden name was Lillo. Also, my grandfather's name was John Biango and he was born on 9/21/1928. He had a sister Dorothy Biango. If anyone can help I would truly appreciate it.

Hi Jon,

Would you happen to know your great great grandmothers first name? It might help in the search for a manifest. I checked Lillo and there are only 250 manifest for that spelling, so maybe we can get lucky with a first name.

Regards,
Elizabeth

Hi vj, wonderful! this is the right Dorothy...! married at Pagano...! wonderful! I believe that the Giovanni "Joseph" Battista Biango, was really Giovanbattista or Giovanni Battista Bianco, and I believe that he was born in the area of Carbone town(Potenza province) some common near carbone, because a aunt of Giovanni Battista was married in Carbone town, so the family was resident in or near Carbone town... .. maybe we can find him ship's manifest... kisses, suanj

I am the granddaughter of Nicholas Biango and it is good to see familiar names. My grandfather was married to Grace Montemurro and they had three children, Marie (my mother), Catherine, and John. When I was 10 years old, we moved from Union City into my grandparents home at 487 Morningside Ave. I remember Great Grandma, she had Parkinsons Disease and died when I was 10 or 11. I remember Uncle Joe, Aunt Mildred and Aunt Camella, as well as Cousin Dorothy and John Pagano.
