        Giulia,
        I am doing a family tree for my uncle Tom Monaco. I have come across the marriage of Donato Monaco to Celeste DiRe. They had a daughter named Pia, born January 7th, 1860. Donato’s birthday was June 7, 1828, just for historical reference. If you have any information on Celeste DiRe, I would appreciate it. Looking for her parents and grandparents, if possible. Celeste is the maternal grandmother of my grandfather Antonio Monaco. Thank you

      My maternal great grandfather is from Cantalupo. Mariano di Re. He died working for the railroad in Needles California during the influenza epidemic in 1918. I visited Cantalupo in 1996 and the parish of my ancestors. Our family name was also memorialized in the town square at the War Memorial. I have official documents of di Re’s in Cantalupo in the 1700’s. I don’t see your ancestors in my direct line, but your grandfather and greatgrandfather are likely cousins to my ancestors from Cantalupo.
