My name is Bonnie Noe and I am researching my Italian/Austrian heritage. I am having the worst time finding any information as it is believed by my great uncle Guiseppe (Joseph) Falgione that the spelling of the last name was changed (Americanized) upon immigration. Uncle Joe has traveled to Italy and searched, but with no results. I would ask for you to look over what information that I have and share some feedback.
Andrea FALGIONE was born in 1857, Italy.
He married Madalena (Unknown), born 1854, Austria.
Two children were in Italy: Dominick George FALGIONE between 1885-1890
Thomas FALGIONE about 1894
When Andrea immigrated to the USA - he came alone leaving Madalena behind with one small child and pregnant with Thomas.
My Great Grandfather Joseph FALGIONE was the first born in the USA - 1896, Pittsburgh, PA. This would place his immigration before or about 1895.
Other children of Andrea and Madalena: Phillip(b. 1899) and Mielina(d. 1909)
There are only two FALGIONE families living in Italy today: Northern in Emilia-Romagna
Southern in Puglia Region
I have also located the following on IGI records at the Toledo Public Library, Ohio:
