Trying to find relatives of my grandfather, Carmelo Orlando. He came from Curinga, Calabria. Was born in 1887 on July 16th. I don't know anything about his siblings or parents, except that his father's name was Bruno.
He came to the United States in 1909 on the S.S. Bretagne, port of Le Havre. The ship manifest says that his final destination was Wilkes-Barre, PA. He was going to stay with Guiseppe Tripedi, his cousin. Wilkes-Barre is where he lived until his death in 1937. He was accompanied by cousins and friends according to the ship manifest. These cousins and friends were listed as:
Francesco Curnado (son of Guiseppe Curnado)friend of Tripedi
Francesco Gigantino ( husband of Elizabetta Bianco)nephew of Tripedi
Francesco Tersano ( son of Nicola Tersano)cousin of Tripedi

This man was from the town of Tersale. His father-in-law was R. Salvatore and he lived on 117 State St. in Wilkes-Barre, PA.
