In Reply to: Ohio and New York Monaco family by J. F. Monaco of 132

hoping this email isn't an old address, but I was browsing for the Monaco last name (there is none here just the country) and read your post. I can't give you any specifics but just a hint. Your age is the same as mine so your father was probably born in the 40's. That's too late for the online census's. Without grandparent names it's nearly impossible. But your father's birth cert should have parents names. If he is deceased try the death cert, and if you don't have one, try calling the funeral home that held the service. I found my grandmother's death cert that way...and they offered to copy it and mail it for free! So first try these, if you haven't alreay. By having the grandparent's names, you can then start searching the US census's.

I am searching here because our Leo side had Monaco cousins. The Leo's Migrated from San Fili, Italy in 1910 and lived in New Rochelle, NY for a time before moving to Plainfield of NJ. I just received an old box of family items including hundreds of photos, some quite old.

One album has a Monaco family's christmas greetings that look to be from the 1950's/60's from an Alex, Camilla/Carmilla, and Butch (the daughter isn't named on two of the photos so I don't know it.) I found it in my great-aunt's photo album. Her husband was Rocky the Monaco's may be related to the Grievo side or even Cavaliere side (I still haven't found anything about the Cavaliere's-was just told that they were cousins)...There is also an old soldier photos labled Rigo Monaco...looks to be from one of the World Wars. I have no idea who he is.
