I am attempting to secure dual citizenship and satisfy my curiosity about my Onorato grandparents. Geremia Onorato was born on 12/27/1879 possibly in Lacedonia, Campania,Italy. His wife, Mary Proto was born in Lacedonia, Campania, Italy on October 15, 1886. They emigrated to the US around 1906 and settled in Montclair, NJ. Geremia was a tailor by trade and a local band leader. He had a tailor shop on Bloomfield Avenue and lived on Bloomfield Ave and 88 Pine Street. His son, Vincenzo Raffaele Onorato graduated from Columbia University, then received an M.D. degree from the University of Naples. While in Italy, he visited with relatives in Lacedonia. Vincenzo married Ida DiBella, daighter of John DiBella, paving contactor, in Verona NJ. I need the place of birth for Geremia and his date of death, as well as the place and date of marriage (likely Lacedonia) for Geremia and Mary as the next step in my quest for dual citizenship. I am very proud of my grandparents and parents and would be delighted to communicatre with anyone swho knows them or knows of them. Please email me at Ciao, Vincent Onorato Alfait
