Researching following names:

From Calabria - Caterina Fuga

From Venice - Vincenzo Crisalli
From unknown area Italy - Faillacci; Gaetana LoRe; Restivo

Many emmigrated to New Jersey turn of the century. Would like to find connections back further.

Interested in any and all information on all Surnames listed.

Most records in Italy are housed in the town of origin. Tracing surnames would be very helpful to you if you know this. Go to www.ellisisland.org and try to locate their entry into the USA at NYC since New jersey makes it reasonable to suppose they were admitted to the USA there. When you find the towns then you can trace the information back since ellis island records will also give you year or date of birth and other helpful information. Peter
