I am 2nd generation born in America. I have a copy of my grandfathers birth certificate and his travel records. He was born luigi Morena March 3,1889
to Giovanni Morena and Bruno Maria Carmela he left Italy August 7,1911. his sister came to America as well I don't know anything about her if they traveled together or not. i believe her name was Margarete, she married Tony Gallucci they settled in New York he was a tailor, my family settled in Minnesota
My grandfather and his sister were the only two I am aware of that left Italy, as always I am looking for more information. thank you
Hi, Margherita Morena with little daughter Rosa Gallucci travelled in USA in 1920 and joining at husband Antonio Gallucci in NY

I found this census:
1930 United States Federal Census about Antonio Gallucci Name: Antonio Gallucci Home in 1930: Peekskill, Westchester, New York View Map Age: 42 Estimated birth year: abt 1888 Birthplace: Italy Relation to Head of House: Head Spouse's name: Margaret Gallucci Race: White Occupation:

however MORENA Margherita Raffaela( full name) was born in Marsico Nuovo on 29 jun 1896, daughter of Giovanni Morena( son of Michele) and of Maria Carmela BRUNO (daughter of Luigi); in the bottom, the marriage note: married in Marsico Nuovo on 5 March 1914 at Antonio Gallucci son of Teodosio Gallucci

tailor, wife and 1 children in Italy.
really by Genzano di Lucania births, Antonio GALLUCCI was born on 1 jun 1886 and not in 11 aug 1887, son of Teodosio Gallucci and of Rosa Martino
Name: Margaret Gallucci Birth: 5 Jul 1894 Death: Jul 1980 - Hollywood, Broward, Florida, United States of America Civil: Florida the birthdate is a bit wrong and by Florida deaths, the same person was born in 14 jun 1896
Name: Margaret Gallucci Birth: 14 Jun 1896 Death: 14 Jul 1980 - Broward, Florida, United States
your Margherita Gallucci nee Morena was born on 29 Jun 1896; I believe that is the right death record...
