Di Martino from Pollutri & Giannone from Vasto

Posted by Jennifer Gorczyca on February 15, 2010 at 03:44:52:

I am trying to research my family and would greatly appreciate any information provided. My great grandparents are from Pollutri. My great grandfather Filippo Di Martino came to America in April of 1909. My great grandmother Grazia Giannone, who came to America in September of 1912 with three children Antonio, Giovina, and Giuseppe Di Martino. On their passenger manifest through Ellis Island the closest relative remaining in Italy was listed as Grazia's father Giovanni. Filippo was killed in an accident on the New York Central Railroad in 1923, my grandfather was only an infant at the time. Any information would be useful. Thank you.
