    My grandfather Carlo Aufiero came to the USA in about 1894 from Santa Paolina. He sold fruit and vegetables in Newport, RI. His brother’s name was Antonio and his father’s name was Pasquale Aufiero. Any information would be most appreciated.

    Hello – My grandfather emigrated to America in the early 1900’s from Santa Paolina when he was young. Attillio DeMarzo. He had some brothers and a sister who probably didn’t travel at the same time (unknown names). When I visited in 2014, I was introduced to a lady who was married to a doctor in town, who was a DeMarzo. Can you help? Thanks.
