My great grandfather's name is Giovanni Vanacore, born Feb 25, 1885 in Grumo Nevano, Napoli, Italy.
He married Cleonice Mauzaia , born 1883 in Civitanova Del Sannio, Molise, Italy.
They had 1 daughter named Matilda followed by a son Michele (he's my grand father).
Giovanni abandoned Cleonice before Michele was born.
He traveled to Montreal, Quebec & the USA, he worked as a miner. He began another relationship with a woman from italy, she followed him on his travels to Canada. He had 2 more children with this lady, a boy & a girl. After many travels to Canada & the USA, his last documented entry to the USA was in 1910 on his way to visit an uncle (Di Tomasso) in Pueblo, Colorado. Sometime in the late 1940's -early 50's Giovanni wrote his son Michele for the first time asking for help in retrieving documents from the commune of Napoli for his pension. The letter was sent from Vancouver ( unknown if it was B.C or Washington ) He may have died in Vancouver, Alaska or elsewhere in the USA.
