orphanages in calabria

Post by temperinomaryann » 20 Nov 2013, 11:02

Have heard of a St. Lanza in this area. I am looking for info on my great grandfather. He was given the last name Temperino upon leaving the orphanage. Have also heard Abruzzia mentioned. First name Vincent.

Welcome to the forum! :-)

Do you have US documents for your GGF - or his decendants?

We can help you search backwards to try and establish his exact comune (town) of birth in Calabria region...

Can you provide some details? Name, approx date of birth, names of children, spouse?
If came to US - where did the family settle?
