Researching the Crisi Family

Posted by Susan Sliwa on June 28, 2011 at 18:02:25:

I am trying to track down any family members that might still be in Italy. My Grandfather was Joseph Crisi (born in USA) and his father was Luigi Crisi (born in 1885). Luigi came through Ellis Island numerous times at the turn of the 20th century. My G. Grandpa Luigi married Angela Nicole Leone. My Great-Great Grandfather's name was Agostino Crisi (born in 1858). From the Ellis Island records I found that Agostino had at least 3 other sons: Antonio, Giovanni & possibly Stefano (in addition to Luigi). On a few of their trips they were coming to stay with someone named Figurelli. My grandfather and his father (Luigi) settled in Windber, Pennsylvania. According to their records they were all from the Abruzzo region - mostly from L'Aquila.

I'm sure there are alot of Crisi's in Italy and I am just getting started on this so if anyone has any info I would be very thankful.
