Portante family

Posted by Katie Felton on May 03, 2012 at 06:29:11:

I am trying to locate information on my grandfather and his family (siblings and parents). My grandfather's name was Sericio (Serice), born 15 Dec. 1877 in L'Aquila. He immigrated to the United States (New York City) in 1910, and subsequently married Leonilda Conte in NY.

From Passenger Ship Records, I have found two brothers -- Ciro, b. abt. 1884 in Italy and Americo (Amerigo), b. abt. 1890 in Italy. Those same records show they all came with their mother, Elvira (I have found several other spellings and am not sure of the correct one) b. about 1859 in Italy. There is no mention of a father. And, they were all living in Barisciano prior to their leaving for the US.

Based on naming patterns, my grandfather's first son was named Peter (Pietro) and then came my father, Amerigo Silvio Vittorio.

Any ideas, information or assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
