Italy: Help finding my great grand parents
« on: Wednesday 06 January 16 00:38 GMT (UK) »
All the resources I've used have yielded no results.

My Great Grandparents are:
Carmine Cermola
b 10 Sept 1877 Amorosi, Benevento, Campania, Italy
d 22 March 1954 Hartford CT USA
e Immigrated 12 Apr 1901 New York, New York

Letizia Adamo (Leti) (D'Adamo) (Adams)
b 24 Sept 1889 Naples, Italy
d 20 February 1986 Hartford CT USA

Thank you!

Have you gotten the marriage record or death certificates for either of them?  These may have parents' names.  Also, you could try to order the original Social Security application for Letizia, which would typically include parents' names including mother's maiden name.  The information on doing this can be seen here - http://www.legalgenealogist.com/blog/2013/05/31/ordering-the-ss-5/

Carmine's immigration record indicates he was going to join his uncle.  If you could find that uncle, it may lead back to the previous generation.

Hi Tocco42,
I am the one who has a posting "Italian Research" on the forum and I try and help with Italian research as I live here.

If you do not have the BC, which would show the parents name and other info I can obtain them for you.

In replying it might be an idea to re-post on "Italian Research" so I can keep an eye on my searches here in Italy.
