I am helping a friend that has his maternal grandfather coming from some place in Sicily Italy. However He does not know where in Italy their Ernesto Victor Rossi family acturally comes from. His grandmother Laura Avella burned the papers, when he was 4 years old, when she departed from the family. Ernesto Cictor Rossi is said to have entered USA via Canada, with his Wife Laura Carmen Avella.
Here is what he knows. His Mother is Maria Catherine Rossi Born 17 aug 1907 Los Angeles, California Died 18 April 1995 San Jose, Santa Clara, California
Married 17 March 1934
Maria was married to Leonard George Baptist Born 14 Sept 1905 San Jose, California Died 5 July 1975
Marie Rossi's father is
Ernesto victor Rossi Born abt 1877 Where? somewhere in Sicily.
He wa smarried to Laura Carmen Avella Born abt 1872 Died abt 1950 California Lisbon, Portugal
The family says that Ernesto Rossi came to the United States through Canada, and was married to his wife out side the USA.
My friend Don would greatly appreciate someone to help him find his Italian ancestry and where in Italy Ernesto Victor Rossi comes from.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
