    My grandfather came to America from Treglio in 1901. His name was Carmen Santeusanio (which became Santasania here in America). All I know is that his father was Tomaso and his mother was Vincentina. I know that his mother died prior to 1901 and that he had at least one brother, Berandino, who came to America with him. I am trying to find out which church he belonged to, or any other information possible. I know that there was still some family still in Treglio as recently as the 1960s because my Dad’s cousin Vincennes used to go over to visit. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
