      my father;s whole side came from sant eusanio forconese going all the way back to Poalantonio Digiovanni in the 1800’s. My grandmother was born there, she was an Eusanio in 1899. My father was born there in 1923.I was born here in America and did my family history going back 6 generations.Iknow my grandfather had a number of brothers and sisters but I do not read Italian so my research had been limited to immediate family. They settled in New York City where I was born.I do know I am related to the Carosone’s, Grilli’s, Butti’s,Eusanios and my maiden name is DiGiovanni.Feel free to communicate.
