My Grandmother's maiden name was Benetti. I found them on the 1900 census. Her father was listed as Joseph, a grocer in Jersey City. It just gives the date, but not the hometown of on the census. I know from verbal info that they were from northern Italy. Another hint I have is that they were blue-eyed and some blond. My grandmother (Mary on the census, Maria on her marraige license)was the daughter of his second wife, Genarosa Guglielmo, although on the census it appears that whoever gave the information made her the only wife. The marraige certificate for my grandmother also gives her father's name as Guiseppi, not Joseph.
Do you know what town of Italy I should be looking in? I hit a dead end.
