My Grandmother's name was Franca, and my Grandfather was Joseph. My Aunt Sandra was born in Italy and so was my Uncle Gianni, my father was the first born here in the US Robert, then there is Cindy, and Lisa, last Lori. I was trying to see if any of the family is still alive in Italy since my Grandparents have passed. I am unsure of when they came here, and the only reason I know anyhting about where they were in Italy is from tales and a DVD my Aunt Lori created.

vj,

If Giuseppi was born in Detroit, his parents would have emigrated earlier. Can you check these census entries?

Thank you for the information. Yes Guiseppe Martellini was born in the states then went back to Italy. I confirmed it with my dad. How do I find family over there?
