Passante family from Salle to Astoria NY

Posted by Joe Passante on December 13, 2008 at 22:28:01:

I have been trying to find out more about my family. I know my family is from Salle, Abruzzo. My Great grandfather was Rosario Passante. His father was Nicolo Passante.
I know that when they came over they moved to Astoria. I live near Philadelphia and I would like to learn more about my family and if anyone can help that would be great.

My great grandmother's name is Daddario. I just have too many questions!! :)

Update from Forums' Editor

Since the civil records have been made available online at it is now possible to ascertain that:
  • In immigration records, port of Philadelphia, 26 febr 1921, one Rosario Passante (father Nicola), is recorded as born in Salle in 1904, directed to uncle Ruffini Michele in Astoria NY
  • A marriage is recorded in 1900 in Salle, N. 13, between Passante Nicolò of Robertantonio and Bellonica Sarrantonio of Giorgio.
