looking for any information on my grandfather Vincenzo Busardo who emigrated to Kings County in 1903 from Palermo, Italy.  Vincenzo stayed with his older brother Calcedonio Busardo who owned his own home on Henry Street.  Calcedonio was a doctor with an office on Piedmont Street.  Calcedonio housed many of his relatives including his sister Anna and many of his cousins on his mother 's (Gianni) side of the family. His younger brother,  Guiseppe (Joseph) Busardo emigrated in 1906 and stayed with him as well. Both Calcedonio & Guiseppe eventually returned to Italy. Guiseppe was the US Consulate to Italy and died in 1968 in Italy. Vincenzo married Mildred Noethiger around 1907.  They lived on Homecrest Avenue near Grave's End.They had five children-John, Grace, Rudolph and Richard who were born between 1909-1913.  A younger daughter Mildred was born three month after Vincenzo died on April 6, 1923.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.
