I am researching a family from Santeramo de Colle, Bari, Apuglia, Italy. The family emigrated to America in 1920, but there was a family scandal which led to the husband being deported back to Italy. Supposedly he had committed a felony (possibly robbery) and was wanted in the courts in Italy prior to his leaving. Reportedly, his case was dismissed in one court, but then reopened in another. He went back to Italy in 1927, and within two months told his family that things had been cleared up for his return to America.
