For the past few years, my sister and I have been (trying to)research our family history; and while I am only 18, I have been quite interested in the whole process. We haven't been too successful up unitl the past few months. Here is what we have found:
My great-grandfather was Anthony Narducy-he came from Italy(we don't know what region), he was placed in an orphanage in Chataqua, NY. He then moved to Chicago, where he married Josehphine Kennedy, and had 4 sons-Miles, Richard, Jack, and Leo; Miles was my grandfather. Thats the gist of it, here is the longer story. Anthony had two siblings, Augustus and Victoria. We have found-through another Narducy my sister and I found over the internet- that on Anthony's birth certificate, the last name was spelled Narducci; why it was changed, we don't know. They all, one way or another, made it to Chicago. This is where it gets sketchy- Apparently, Anthony and Augustus had a falling out, and split, but they both kept tabs on eachother, and they both lived on the south side of Chicago. Victoria married a Mangan(?) and had a few children, two sons(?). We think she died at a young age, and Anthony took her children in-our next door neighbor remembers the Mangan children moving in with Anthony and Josephine(f.y.i., we still live in the same house Anthony and Josephine lived in). Recently, we have found the children and grandchildren of Augustus, and my sister met with them this weekend. We have yet to find the Mangan side of the family. I guess the reason for this post is to find out who Anthony's parents were, and where he and his siblings came from, and also, if we have any cousins out there! I would like to find as much info as possible about my family, and my culture. ANY help will be much appreciated. I hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks so much,
