    My paternal grandmother’s family are all from Aquino, but I can’t find anything on them before the immigrated to American in the early 1900s. They’re names are James (Vincenzo) Cifu (Parents are Anthony [Antonio] Epifanio Cifu b. 1869 and Gaetana Disatto) and Rose A. Capraro (Parents are Francesco Capraro b. 1881 and Angelina Delli Colli b. 1885). On all the census records they list Aquino as their city of origin. Any information you find will be immensely helpful.

    Thank you!
