Di Benedetto, Lattanzio, and Passante

Subject: Di Benedetto, Lattanzio, and Passante

My grandfather, Agostino Di Benedetto, was born in Salle, in 1901 (Sept 14). His parents were Franceco Di Benedetto and Anna Lattanzio. I am unable to find any earlier info on them.

My grandfather immigrated to the U.S. in 1913 and lived in Queens (Long Island City?). He married Elena (Helen) Passante (D.O.B. Feb 7, 1907) in 1926. She was the daughter of Dominico Passante and Santa Acosta (?- difficult to read the certificate). Their marriage was witnessed by Joseph De Donato and Carmela Coletta.

Their children were Eleanor (my mom) and Frank (my uncle). My sisters and I were raised in northern New Jersey. My cousins grew up in Hicksville and Centereach (Long Island), New York.

I just recently discovered these wonderful Abruzzi/Pescara/Salle websites. Any suggestions on how best to further my research would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
