    Hello, my grandfathers name was Cesare Scaramuzza. We think his middle name was Julius. He was born on Jul 21, 1879. He arrived in New York City on Feb 14, 1920. Based on arrival documents he originated from Strongoli and departed from Naples. He served in the military in the first world war. Family stories says that he attended Seminary for a year before emigrating to the US. I am wondering if there are any records such as birth, baptism, etc. Also, if there is a record of his family that remained in Italy such as his parents or siblings. Are there any descendants from the Scaramuzza family living in Strongoli.

    My grandfather’s name was Sam Rocco, born in1878. My grandmother’s name was Domenica Monica, born in 1879. I think Sam came to the United States in 1902 and brought his family over in 1909. Are there any Roccos still living in Strongola?

    • Mario says:

      My mom’s grandmother was Domenica Monica, but her grandfather’s name was Saverio Rocco (he went by Sam). Saverio wrote Vincenzo and Felice as the family members he was staying with in Brooklyn when he arrived from Strongoli. Saverio also had a brother Francesco who arrived in NY in 1919. In 1940, Saverio was living in a suburb of White Plains, NY, and my mom’s dad Peter and his siblings were in their late teens, early 20s in 1940. So try looking for Saverio, Francesco, Vincenzo Rocco in your search in Italy. Hope this helps.
