    I am looking for any information on my Grandfather Adolfo Santini born in 1901 and came to the US (Detroit, MI) with his family friend/relative Joseph Recchia. Joseph passed away in 1930 from an accident at the Ford Plant. We were told that my Grandfather was an orphan, he actually used Joseph Recchia parents names (Antonio Recchia and Pasqua Catallo) on all the paperwork for marriage and immigration. We are traveling to both Casalvieri and Atina (my Grandmothers hometown) at the end of September 2018. Any information would be appreciated.

    My great grandparents were both born in Casalvieri. Onorio Colangelo(born January 10 1896 or 1895) and Maria Colangelo (nee Marelli born August 3 1897) Onorio came over to the US in 1920 for 4 years then returned to Casalvieri for his wife Maria. She stayed with her mother in law, Theresa, while she waited. On April 15th they boarded the SS Presidente Wilson in Napoli and came To NYC. I have drawn dead on info on either of their or their relatives before they came over to the US and could use some help.

    My father was born in Casalvieri in 1921. My grandfather, Donato Tamburrini, came to the United States shortly after. My Grandmother, Loretta (Recchia) Tamburrini, came to the United States with my father around 1927. Somewhere along the line the spelling was changed to Tomburrini. I would love to know if I have relatives still living in the area and hope to visit sometime in the next two years.
