    My maternal grandma was Terese Grossi who came to the USA in the early 1920’s. Her father was Andrea or perhaps Giuseppe Grossi. They owned a business that grew olives in Castro dei Volsci. In fact the business may still be operating. I wish only to make contact with any relative to discuss my family history. Please pursue this for me. I deeply appreciate your help.

      Hello. My paternal grandfather and grandmother were from Castro dei Volsci. My grandfather migrated to Sopris, Colorado in 1907. His name was Angelo Garofali. He had an arranged marriage with Lucia Leonetti, who came to Colorado in 1910. She has a Rosa Rossi in her background. I think she may have been a grandmother. Not sure.
      I do know that many of the Castro dei Volsci immigrants were miners for Colorado Fuel in Sopris.
      Feel free to communicate with me. Maybe we can help each other in our family search.
