Fortugno - Any country

Postby lorr42no » 05 Feb 2008, 21:44

I'm trying to locate and find info about my grandfather, Arcangelo Fortugno's family. He was born in Delianuova, Reggio Calabria, Italy in 1894. His father is Alfonso and his mother is Dominica Battista. Any info will be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi and welcome to the forum.
What kind of information are you looking for? I don't know if you have his Ellis Island manifest already, but this might be it.

If you got to www.comuni.it and bring up Delianuova (RC) you have an opportunity to e-mail the town fathers and ask them about the dates of their civil records avilable to the public since the Mormon church town records for Delianuova are not in evidence on the internet.=Peter=

Hi Lorr,

I found another arrival in August 1913 for Arcangelo Fortugno, joining his cousin Alfonso Fortugno, maybe in the family there were two cousin with the same first name?

Thank you, I have all this, he is my 'Nono'. The other Alfonso is a cousin, because it said so on one of the manifest. I've written to people and am waiting for a reply.
