    Hello, Looking for any information about my ancestors. Domenico Cimino (born approx. 1883) was the son of Bartolomeo Cimino and Angela Maria SantaCroce. Domenico came to America in 1905 at age 22 with his mother (Angela Maria SantaCroce, who was then aged 42) on the ship Hamburg to Ellis Island. Bartolomeo was at this time already in New Haven Connecticut. Sometime thereafter, Domenico returned to Italy (Caiazzo) where he married Maddelena Marcucci (born January 14, 1889). Together they returned to America (on the ship Kaiser Auguste Victoria in March 1912) with twin infant daughters. I am looking for any information on Maddelena Marcucci (who were her parents?) or on Bartolomeo Cimino and Angela Maria SantaCroce, all from Caiazzo as far as we know. Thank you.
