    My daughter and her husband will be visiting San Stefano, Reggio di Calabria in May 2014. Daughter wants to link up with descendants of Stefano J. Romeo b. 1871 d. 1950 of San Stefano d’Aspromonte, Reggio di Calabria. Daughter is a great granddaughter of Stefano Romeo. He died in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada in 1950. One known link is a brother James Vincenzo Romeo b. Italia 1880 d. Canada 1957. Possibly .. Stefano is a son of Stefano Romeo and Pasqualina Zappolo but not positive. Stefano married a Maria Romeo born San Giorgio, Reggio di Calabria (is she his Romeo cousin or other name?) Think, but not sure, they married in 1908 in Tazewell, W.Virginia, United States but not positive. Grazie por favore, Marilyn
