Friend Of A Friend SGRO Line

Ralph Sgro came to America in 1901 from his beloved and beautiful Country San Vito, Bari Puglia, Italy where he was born on 19 Sep 1890 Father is unknown at this time and the only information we have on his mother is her name Elenora Maria Ciraco. 

Ralph started singing in the choir at church and became  a well known Opera singer.
