I going to post the 1930 Census for Louis and family. This includes his brothers Augostino and Savino, but no Ettore or Hector listed. Angelo is not even listed. You've probably already seen it but others may want to have a look.

Thanks. I already have that info. Hector and family lived down the street during the 1920 census. I cannot find him in the 1930 census. I do not have anything on Angelo, except the ship manifest for his visit, because frankly no one knows about him!!!! My eldest aunt does not remeber her father or uncles (Savino and Augustine) talking about another brother.

Yes, I knew you already had that info but its much easier to help when everyone else is able to also view it as well. It also saves everyone a lot of time...remember, each person looking for you has to go through all the info you already have to find the info you need.
Were you able to place Angelo on a census as well? If so, could you post the info or tell us did he also follow the naming traditions? All these little clues will help piece your puzzle together. Also, we mentioned the FHC films...did you ever inquire about them? They will confirm all the info including parents names which is very important. You have some good leads on ages of the brothers so it shouldn't be too difficult.
vj and suanj,
Nice job. Hopefully this is the info the poster needs.
Thank you so much for all your help. I apologize for commenting on the info I already have, as I did not think about it from your prospective. Sorry.
The ship manifest for Angelo Pontecorvo has him listed as a non-immigrant visitor. I am assuming that he came for a visit. Why he never returned is a mystery to me. Maybe he was killed during WWI?
I have been unable to follow-up with FHL due to family obligations. Unfortunately, my grandparents only had girls. My male cousins are named after their fathers. My great-uncles Savino and Augustine never had children. Hector had children, but I never met him.
Thanks for finding the 1930 census for Hector. I am still at a loss to find his ship manifest.
Sorry..didn't mean to come across as rude. Was just trying to explain the more you give us, the more we can do. Not angry or anything...communication is key and no one here is better or worse then anyone else so forgive me if I sounded abrupt.
Don't give up. It will happen. It just takes time. Do you know which films are needed though? Maybe someone can post them (I'm horrible at it). This way someone might check the libraries if they are there and if they are already on loan, they might be able to help with actual lookups. It never hurts to post just in case, right?
