    Looking for information about Giovanni Giordano born Nov 1869, his wife Maria Del Pezzo (Pizzo) born Feb 1864 and daughters Teresa (Feb 1891) and Anna (10 October 1892). The family arrived at Ellis Island on 18 December 1898 from Naples aboard the Tartar Prince. According to the ship manifest their last residence was Angri, Salerno Province. Giovanni and Maria married about 1888 but I don’t know the town. I assume Angri. The only other information I know us Giovanni was a carpenter by trade
    I am hoping to find Giovanni and Maria’s marriage record and birth records of all, especially for Anna and any other information of the family time in Angri.
    Thanks
