Bingo where did it originate?

We are having a family argument to where bingo came from and when it was originated, could someone let us know?

To keep a long answer short; Bingo originated in Italy in 1530 known as "Il Gioco del Lotto d'Italia" and formally became "Bingo" in 1933 by Hugh J Ward of Pennsylvania.
