Thanks Peter! I have already been to Ellis Island, and I do have the passenger records for my great great grandparents, which is how I know they came from Furci. I also have the 1910, 1920, and 1930 census records on the family as well. I have the baptismal and marriage records (from the church) on each of the children. It's kinda of a pain because I have two different last names to check up on. In Italy, the surname was Cianciosi...but after a few years of being here, it was shortened to Changose. It was changed somepoint between 1910 and 1920. Thanks for your help, and I'm off to check the mormon family search website.
