Notes for Ambrogio Domenico Nangeroni
“ Ambrogio was one of the earliest to immigrate to the US (late 1800s) & worked as a chef in NYC & Boston.
- Ambrogio returned to Italy to marry Teresa (in 1900) & bring her to the US & start a family
- Ambrogio and Teresa’s home became a hub for family members to stay when coming to the US
- As the eldest child, Josephine had much responsibility, including caring for younger siblings, working at Teresa’s store, & providing translation services for the Italian community in Boston.”
Carol Varnerin Levandowski - 2012

Ambrogio, age 24, and Teresa, age 19, married, are shown arriving at Ellis Island on March 11, 1900. It is apparently her first trip to the US while he is listed as having spent 7 years in the US. They are from Brebbia, Italy and he is identified as a cook, and as having spent his time in the US in New York.

On Oct. 7, 1905 Ambrogio, age 29, married, a cook, is shown arriving at Ellis Island. He is listed as having been in the US from 1892 - 1905 in New York. This time he is listed as coming from Besozzo Como, Italy. Besozzo and Brebbia are about a mile apart just east of Lake Maggiore, north west of Milan and not far from Switzerland. Both the Peroni and Nangeroni names are still found in the area (2003) and are relatively uncommon elsewhere in Italy.

On Feb. 20, 1909 Alfredo Nangeroni arrived at Ellis Island, age 16, unmarried, going to New York to join his brother, Ambrogio, at 143 W. 17th Street. (The 7 is clear, the 1 is not) He is listed as traveling from Brebbia.

His occupation is shown as “cook” on his daughter’s 1913 birth record.
