    I’ve been trying to do some digging on my great-grandparents because no one knows anything about them before they came to America, even still a little grey until years after they established life here. Their names from what I’ve been told were Francisco Ciarmello Jr. born 1878 and Antionette Sparaco Ciarmello born 1876, which is oddly similar to the girl Alyson’s post from 2013. I keep hitting a brick wall on getting any information on them, even with Ellis island records. So if you could give me any guidance or information it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    My grandfather was born in San Marco evangelista, his name Antonio Sparaco. When he came to Ellis Island they changed his name to Anthony Sparago! He had 4 brothers, Alessandro ,Pietro, Luigi and another, not sure of his name. His parents were Magdalena and Alessandro Sparaco.

  3. Alyson says:

    My great-grandfather was from San Marco Evangelista-Francesco Ciaramella (He was 38 in 1912) and great-grandmother Antonia Sparaco from San Nicola La Strada in the 1800’s. She was 37 in 1913 per the Ellis Island ship manifest. They came to the US in early 1900’s. Thank you for your help,
