Just trying to design my family tree. I am curious about my family on the Russo side. My great grandfather and grandmother came over from Italy with my oldest great aunt, Olivia when she was very young. They came through New York around 1922 and settled in Wisconsin. They had nine children in all, four girls and five boys. Mario (died when he was 21 months old due to pnemonia) , Olivia, ( Mario and Olivia were the only ones born in Italy.) Jerry, Alfred (my grandfather), Carmela, Adeline, Robert, Jr. (Bob), Richard (Dick) and Rita. While in Italy Grandpa Russo served in the Italian army. He and Grandma Russo had a farm in the mouintains of Southern Italy. (they lived by the boot.)
