    I recently found out I was adopted. My paternal father’s parents were from Casoria. Their last name is DeAngelo or D’Angelo. I am not sure of the spelling. I would really like to gather more information. According to the census they immigrated to the United States in the 1920s.
    Thank you for any information you can give me.
