FRANCESCO GIULIANO & ANNA TOMAINO
By: Rachel Smith

CATANZARO

My great-grandfather, Francesco Giuliano came to the United States as a young man in 1904. He settled in Long Branch, New Jersey and became one of the first Italian immigrants to settle there. He worked as a gardener and farmer for large family estates in the surrounding area. He walked to work in the extreme heat and bitter cold, making more money than he ever would've back in Italy. He sent for my great-grandmother, Anna Tomaino in 1906 and they were married at Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church in Long Branch, September of that year. They had 8 children, the youngest being my grandfather Sam. Frank and Anna created strong family values that are still evident in our family today. There are 19 grandchildren, 35 great grandchildren, and we are now into the 4th generation. Although the neighborhood has changed, their story hasn't. It's up to us to keep their stories alive, as a way to honor them for their courage, sacrifice, and opportunity they created for all of us
