Seeking Genovese Family Information

Post by kilgorechi » 29 Jan 2009, 07:48

My husband's grandmother is supposed to be a sister of Vito Genovese and had a sister as well. Her name was Pia R. Genovese and she was born October 27, 1895 in Italy, came to the US from Genoa, Italy and died in 1971 in Lake County, Illinois. She married Giorgio Leone, then Adelindo Orsi in Chicago. Adelindo ran a restaurant in Franklin Park, IL for many years called Lindi's. Any information regarding parents or siblings would be appreciated.

Any information on the Orsi family would also be great. Thanks.

If your husband's grandmother was born in Genoa...then most likely is only distantly related to Vito...if at all. Vito was from southern Italy, more specifically Napoli.
but that's not to say that she didn't have a brother named Vito...just probably not THE Vito.

Thank you for that information, sadly, there was never much said about Pia's parents so we were going on rumor alone. Now I can start looking outside that family, and hoping that brother Vito and others came to the US as well.
