Looking for information on Frank and Josephine (Sarnicola) Gentile. They arrived in America and lived in the Hempstead area of New York City sometime before the 1930 Census, along with their children. I believe them to be my grandparents.
go to the www.ellisisland.org website for their arrival into the USA and then you will obtain their birth year and where they were destined to upon arrival. The site will also give you their town of origin in Italy. Please get back to me when you have this information and what you want to do next. Peter
