I am looking for information for my great grandmother. Her birth name was Maria Ricciardi. She was born on April 2, 1893 in Airola (BN), Campania, Italy. I know for a fact that she had a brother named Antonio who was born on May 16, 1896. I also believe her parents were named Giacomo and Maddalena.
She arrived by ship in New York in 1912. Both she and her brother ultimately settled in East Boston, MA. She was married to Domenico LaCava of Lipari, Sicilia.
What I'm trying to find out is who her parents were, and whether or not they both made the trip to the United States. It seems as though their father made the trip before them, but it's unclear as to whether or not he stayed here, and it's also unclear whether or not their mother made the trip.
I'd appreciate any information. Thanks!
