    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!

    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

    Thank you
