This picture was taken in the mid to late 1800’s somewhere in Italy. The man’s name was Domenico Burdi, the father of my mother’s mother. He never moved to the USA, but stayed in Italy with one of his sons, also Domenico Burdi. My maternal grandmother, Filomena, immigrated to the USA coming through Ellis Island and living in the Bronx, New York.
I found this picture in one of my mom’s (Evelyn Teresa Caruana’s) old passports.
Merry Christmas 2011 to all my friends and family. Also thank you to my grandmother, Filomena who took the huge risk of leaving Italy in the search for a better life in the United States of America.
