Hi, I am trying to find out where my grandfather came from in italy and to try and trace his roots over there and find out something about the family. His name was Francesco Ruocco and I know he came over before 1910 as that was the year my father was born. My grandfather was a confectioner and worked in High Holborn. Looking at old records I know of a Vincent Ruocco who had a shop in High Holborn so I'm wondering if they were related and worked together. Any help, or contact with any living relatives, would be much appreciated.
