Hi!!My name is Maria Galeone, I'm 22 years old and,of course and I live in Italy.Last week, while I was chatting with my aunt, she told me her grandparents ' story: they migrated to USA during the Second World War to seek their fortune! In fact, my grandmother was born in Boston, but she returned in Italy when she was only a baby and she never came back.Now, my grandmother is here not more, so she cannot give me some information, so I just have some photos and an address of Everett, MA.But I have a problem...I cannot understand the name of the street!!!! It may be " Jerry street"?? "Terry street"?? "Ferry street"? or what?? There's here anyone that can help me to understand the address??I don't know if they live here nowadays...I just know that ten years ago, there was some of my family still "alive" here!!From then....nothing!!
So, if anyone can tell me the right name of the street, I would be grateful...4ever!!!!
I'll wait for you answers...PLEASEEEE!!!HELP MEEE!
Kisses
Maria

Ps. my mail address is maria.galeone@alice.it
thank you

Hi!
First of all, I would like to thank caseyB and crazyworld for their disponibility and kindness..you really helped me!!! Now, I'll try to explain you my relatives' story in few words.
I know that many years ago, my great-great-Grandparents migrated to Boston, but I don't know exactly their names. Just know my great-great-Grandfather's surname: SANTORO.
Then, I know that they had sons..the name of one of these is Florence (so Florence Santoro, I suppose), who married a man whose surname was VESTULLO.
In fact, I have got an old registered letter headed to FLORENCE VESTULLO and the address is : "80, Ferry Street, Everett Mass., USA, 02149".
Besides,my aunt told me a little curious story: when Florence's mother was 98 years old (!!!!!), a local newspaper (i don't know its name!) published the notice with her photo!
Last news that we have are about Florence and I know that she had sons and nephews.
In reality, I would like to reconstruct my grandmother's story, because I really loved her and Florence may be her aunt!!
I know that probably Florence could be dead, but I would like to meet my "far relatives", because maybe they are thinking to their "italian relatives" too.
I hope you could help me and if you want you can also write me an email (maria.galeone@alice.it) or send me a private message.
Don't you think this is also a whim...it's very important for me and my family!
Thank you!
Maria

I wish you luck in your journey to find your family. I will tell you before you begin that Santoro is a very big name on the North Shore (the area you are looking at). Start small and I bet it will lead you there.

Using a free geneology search site, I did locate someone by the name of Florence Santoro, b. 17 Jan 1930 d. 15 Oct 1997, but the age seems too young

Maria, I am going to move your inquiry to our "people search" forum. There are some very helpful posters there who are good at tracking down people.

Good luck in your search, it would be fun to locate some "cousins".

There was a Florence and Nicholas Vertullo at the Ferry St. address. I know the spelling is not exactly the same, but I bellieve they are the people you are looking for.

This link is for the obituary of Phyllis (Santora) Votta of Saugus MA. She was the sister of Florence Vertullo as well as Jenny & Arthur Santora.

Phyllis A. Votta - Saugus, MA - Saugus Advertiser

Her daughters are Carol Scourtas (age 62) and Donna J Keene (age 58) of Saugas MA. I found the following:

Carol Scourtas
386 Central St., Saugus MA 01906
Phone: 781-233-6723

D.J. Keene
6 Granite Ct., Saugus MA 01906
Phone: 781-233-4221

These ladies would be the nieces of Florence Vertullo and Jenny & Arthur Santora. Perhaps they can provide you with the family history.

Good Luck Maria!

Liz

Thank you caseyB and crazyworld, it's beautiful to know that so far from me there are people so kind and helpful like you!!!
I spoke with my aunt and she told me that "Florence Santoro" had several brothers and sisters. One of these is Giovanna Santoro (my great- grandmother), another is Antonio Santoro, but anything more.
I think it's possible that Florence was born in the 1930s, because maybe she was the little one...(at least, here my relatives remember this!).
I'll continue to looking for more information and i hope I can still count on you!!!
I also posted my request in the conversation you linked me..it was a precious advice!!!
Just waiting!!
Kisses
Maria
