    1. Looking for parents of Antonio Spadaro, born May 3, 1879 probably in Laganadi, Itay; also his wife Maria DiMiao born around 1883 possibly in Laganadi also. They immigrated to Boston, USA, arrived December 11, 1913, with son Antonio and daughter Guiseppa. They were on the ship Cretic. Not sure if Baiano applies here, but will appreciate “so much” any direction anyone can give me. The family stayed in and around Auburn, New York and are
      buried there. Thanks again!

    2. looking for my grandfather’s parents-he was born 2/8/1885 in Baiano Avellino- His name Alfred Faustino- he may have been adopted- think his birth father’s last name was DePalma Any information is appreciated

    3. Trying to find my gradfathers last name. I have 3 possibilities. 1. Aniello Macca. Dob circa 1876. 2. Masso
      My fathers birth cert. reads Macca. But it was changed to Masi later on.
      My grandfather was born in
      baiano avellino.

      This is about all I have at this point
