    Lynn, my Grandmother, Antonia Natale, was from Liberi or Meramgeli, Caserta , Italy.
    She settled in Mahoningtown, Pa. about 6 miles away from Edinburg. I, also, am searching for Natale relatives. I did obtain her birth certificate from the commune when I visited Liberi earlier this summer.
    Her father was Gaetano Natale and mother was Camille Vastano.
    I believe some of the Natale family from Edinburgh relocated to New Jersey many years ago.
    I believe they were distant cousins but there was never any mention of it.
    There are also Natale families in the city it New Castle which is also very close to Edinburg. If there is anything I can help you with, feel free to email me. Dennis
