    I am trying to trace my Italian roots on my father’s (Joseph) side. His surname was Trupiano (Michael-his Dad). His mother’s maiden name was Buino (Frances). Both of his parents were born in the USA. My Dad’s paternal grandparents were born in Italy, Rocco Trupiano & Anunziata Gallo. His maternal grandparents, I believe were born in Italy or, at the very least, Europe. Their names were Matteo Buino & Mary Faheu (?). My father’s paternal great grandparents were Michele (Michael?) Trupiano & Celestina Pellegrino. I have reason to believe that my ancestors are from Naples (Trupiano)and/or Calabria (Buino). Any help you can give would be appreciated.
