I am looking for a relative that went to south America in the 1850s. My GG Grandfather had several brothers and my family says one of these brothers went to South America but we don't know where.

These borthers were born in Colosimi, Cosenza, Calabria Italy. Their names were Giuseppe Greco born 1861, Saverio Greco born 1855 and Steffano Greco born 1852. The parents were named Filippo Anthonio Greco and Angela Ferraiuolo.

My Great Great Grandfather was named Rosario Greco and was born 1857. He moved to NewYork in 1892 then Canada in 1894. He lived in atown called Fort WIlliam. Fort William is now called Thunder Bay. He or his wife Santa Cristiano or their daughter Angela Greco was writing to the brother in South America but they lost touch. In Canada my GG Grandfather Rosario called himself George Ross. His wife called herself Santa or Mary Ross and Angela called herself Ann Ross.

Hope that I will one day find my relatives in South America. Any long shot is worth checking.
