    Hello:
    Here in western Pennsylvania, (United States) it is around 3 o’clock in the afternoon, March 22, 2018. I can say that I am in the process of wanting to find any information about my grandfather and grandmother who I have determined that they are from Sperone, Italy. My name is Michael Sorice, my father, who passed in 1995, was the youngest child of Sabato and Maria Autilia Pantalone Sorice. They were both from the town of Sperone. They were married in 1897. I believe my grandfather’s father was Sabato Sorice, born in 1836, his parents were Raffalo Sorice and Victoria Catanna. Should there be any person that I could contact, I would appreciate the reply, and would try my best to proceed further. Thank-you, Michael

    Michael,

    You and I are related. My grandfather was Delfino (Delphio) Sorice and my great-grandparents were Sabato and Maria Autilia. Any information that you may have obtained, I would certainly be interested as I am looking to complete and add to the ever-growing family tree.

    Hello: My name is Michael Sorice, having worked my entire life, and retired, I have time to search for the family living in Italy. I live in Pennsylvania, and I am in need of help in this venture. I am interested in the family background of our family, Pantalone / Sorice.
    All I can understand is that both families came to the United States around the same time, or were married and arrived together. My information is as follow’s:
    Sabato Sorice, born April 19, 1836. His Parents were Raffalo Sorice and Victoria Catanna. My Great Grandperants are Sabato Sorice, born Dec. 2. 1872 and Married Maria Autilia Pantalone, born 1872.
