This is a picture of my 2nd great grandfather, Michele Boccamazzo. This picture was taken in 1892 in Buenos Aires, Argentina where he worked on a ranch farm for a while before he went back to Italy. Then him and his family came here to New York City.
Not much is known about him and my grandfather doesn't speak much about him. This is only picture we have of him, unfortunately. If it wasn't for this picture and for my grandfather keeping every family picture I wouldn't have this.
So thanks grandpa for keeping this and every other family picture.
PS. He's the father of Nicholas Boccamazzo who is in another post called Happy Birthday.
