      Hi,Debra if you do search of last name Mari on Italian white pages all people with that last name are based are of Terracina I was born in Monte San Biagio and do not remember anyone with Mari last name and the town was very small so I would remember that name far as Calderini most with that last name are based in Rome area,by the way Terracina is only a few miles away from Monte San Biagio they could of got married in our beautiful church but probably they did not live there hopefully this helps.

    Hi, my grandfather, Luigi Di Crescenzo, migrated through Ellis Island and arrived on March 2, 1913 on ship named Italia departing from Naples. He was 24 years of age and listed last place of residence as Monte S Biagio. It was stated his nationality was South Italy. He was able to read and write. He was single and then married my grandmother, Blanch(e) Holman and resided in Shamokin, Pennsylvania at the address of 1416 S. Walnut Street. He worked as a tailor. I would greatly appreciate any additional information you could provide.

    Dear Joe Onorata:
    George Aber here, Adelaide, South Australia.

    Thanks very much for the information on the Di Spirito family. Sorry to be so long in getting back to you, but I’ve only recently relocated to South Australia from Melbourne, and getting re-settled has been more difficult than we anticipated.

    Kind regards,
    George Aber

    • Giuseppe says:

      Hi,George i did a little research and found out only one Erasmo DI Spirito came thru Ellis Island, in 1921, but he put down on immigration papers he was from Castelforte which is only a few miles away from Monte San Biagio ,also for your record there a few Di Spirito left in Castelforte but none left in Monte San Biagio,Erasmo could have been born in Castelforte and had moved to Monte San Biagio if you provide a little more info maybe i can narrow the gap,best.

  6. Joel says:

    Hello, I’m researching my family history and it looks like I’ve narrowed it down to the Monte San Biagio area that my fathers side of the family came from. My grandfather Alfred (Alfredo) came over to the us and he was born in 1911, His father was Gaetano Canale and he looks like he was born in 1877, He had a Brother Fortunato that was born in 1885 it looks like. Their Father it looks like is Antonio Cangle and their Mother it looks like was Motestine or Testina Pacione.
    This is where I have not been able to find anything more. I do not know if we still have family over there or how to go any further in my research. If you can help or give me guidance that would be great.

    • Giuseppe says:

      Hi,Joel, Gaetano Canale on the Ellis ISLAND passenger search came to the US in 1903 from Monte San Biagio,also a few Canale and Pacione left in Monte San Biagio when i did a search on italian white pages and if i had to bet they are related to you,hopefully this helps a little.

    • Monica says:

      Hi Joel,
      My great-grandfather is Fortunato Canale, the brother of your great-grandfather Gaetano Canale. The information I have matches yours, so we are certainly cousins! I’m curious to know if your research has taken you further? I have just picked up researching again, and am delighted to see so many more resources available online.
