Looking for the parents of Simone Costanzo

Post by denmother4 » 20 Feb 2014, 14:50

Simone P "Sam" Costanzo was born in March 1892 in Pedivigliano, Cosenza, Calabria. He was naturalized as an American citizen in 1947 in the state of Washington. Later his wife, Fiorita Cesario, and their three children joined him. I am looking for the name of his parents. I believe they were Constantino Costanzo and Concetta Pontier but would like confirmation and hopefully some more information on Constantino and Concetta.

Here are the Naturalization records for Simone Costanzo, born in Pedivigliano.
First is dated 1937 and the second 1945
In the second one, he identifies his wife Fiorita's place of birth as Pediviigliano in 1899.



And this one has his PHOTO! :-)
