    Looking for geneology on my Great-Great Grandmother Lucia Sacco, Zambrano. She was born 1884 in San Pietro. She Married Raffaele Zambrano in San Pietro, and had her first Son Paul B Zambrano in 1901, In San Pietro. She immigrated to New Jersey in 1906 with her son Paul. Raffaele was already in New Jersey when they arrived at ellis island. They Left from Napels on the ship Republic. She died on March 11th 1968, In Long Branch New Jersey.
    I know of her life and family once here in the US, but since losing my Grandfather, whom she raised, I was not able to learn more about her life in Italy. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
