My family came from Italy about 1889. Do not believe they went to Argentina- Port of entry was San Francisco, CA
Great Grand Father opened a Fish Market. Lost everything in 1906 earthquake. My grandmother talked of surviving on fishing boats- eating hard boiled eggs for over 3 weeks-
Relocated to San Jose,CA and opened another fish market. (a few of the relatives had moved to Santa Cruz- 40 minutes from San Jose.(located on the coast) My grandmother also had one brother
Paul-I hear tell he lost the fish market in San Jose in a gameling game. he was a gambler and drank too much.
Relatives that I know locally are the Stagnaros(Fisherman and restrants) of Santa Cruz, Ghios of Santa Cruz, CA (Fishermen) Pestrinos of San Jose,(Lawyers) Chappys of San Jose, CA. all came from the same region in Italy. I took a trip to Riva Trevso a year ago May. Was shocked at the run down conditons in the area. Sestri Levante on the other hand was very nice- clean and seemed to have a good economic - structure - Fishing. and small businesses.

I am still searching family names and will get you my great Grandfather and Grand Mothers names.
Thanks for the reply. will search more.

Best regards, Judy
