Francesco D'Amato was the oldest son of Giuseppe and Giuseppa LaBarbera.

I do not have a birth date, but G & G married in 1903, so I assume he was born soon after.

I have a photo of the family circa 1925 and Francesco is not in it, he had left to go to America by then.

I am told he went to find his mothers relatives in Chicago, so I assume that is John and/or Anthony LaBarbera that he went to.

I am looking for help in locating Francesco and his descendents.

I am sure he became Frank when he lived in Chicago. He was married to Cira, I do not have her surname or any other info.

I made a few runs searching Ellis Island and Ancestry but nothing jumps out. He was born in Bagheria, Palermo, Sicily.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ciao!

Great work, Laura Very Happy !!

In checking the 1930 census I saw that there were likely Ciro relatives of Frank's wife Cosima living at the same address.
