Her last name was Colello and she was born in Vieste, Foggia, Italy in 1912. She and her parents came to Boston, MA in 1913 (NOT Ellis Island as I originally thought!) I was able to get her father, Michelo’s, naturalization papers. Thanks to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, I was able to get microfilm from the town she was born in to locate her parents birth certificates. Since I don’t speak Italian, they were very difficult to read. Still trying to decipher everything! I ordered a book from Amazon by Trafford Cole on Italian records and it has helped a great deal. I will be ordering more records on microfiche soon once I read Trafford Cole’s book!
