    I am looking for my mother’s mother’s family. My grandmothers maiden name was Ernesta Sarno born in 1901, March 7 in Cuisano san domenico. Her fathers name was Nicola Sarno and mothers name was Adele DeMeo. She came to America between 1917 and 1918 with her older sister Michelina. Their father was a warden in a prison. I know she had a brother that died and a sister that died in childbirth. I would like to know if there is any family still there.

    Visited Chuisano San Domine in 2012. My great grandfather Luigi Caporale immigrated to the North end of Boston in approx 1880. On a return side trip while I was doing business in northern Italy, my wife and sister spent the day there. Amazingly they met family. It turns out my grandfather married Jenni Dela Russo in the North end and they also were from the same place. They ended up settling in Revere, MA.
