    My grandfather, Luigi Vincenzo D’Angelo was born on Mar 11 1884 in Buonanotte and died on May 14 1949 in Baltimore Md. He was the son of Luigi D’Angelo and Columba DiLullo. On Sept 7 1924, Luigi was married to Pasqua Matilda D’Angelo who was born Apr 22 1905 in Buonanotte and died in NYC Apr 19 1993. She was the daughter of Chiriaco and Julia D’Angelo. They had one daughter, Clara, before immigrating to the U.S. I am looking for more information about my great grandparents and their families. Except for my grandparents I have no other dates. I would love to visit Buonanotte but I do not see that being possible in the near future. My father, Louis (Luigi, too) has visited often and I have video of the old town. Wish I could walk those streets myself. Grazie!
