    1. Well here it is in 2020—-my first inquiry was (December 15, 2014—see above) I have not heard one word from anyone of this site…..I am still looking and waiting…..

    2. My grandfather was born to Salvatore Lomazzo and Giovannina (Sarni) Lomazzo- –
      These two people had 5 sons and one daughter–here they are.

      Michele born March 14, 1895
      Alessandro D. born April 14, 1886 or 1887
      Leonardo born 1874
      Ernesto born 1879
      Autoro ?

      Maria born 1885

      Unfortunately I do not speak or write Italian. I’ve been working on my family tree for three years. I cannot find out any information from any of the people above because they are dead.

      When I checked the ships manifest (they arrived here in America at different times) they each mentioned three towns they were from –Sorbo Serpico, Voltusaro,and Aviellino. I do not know what is correct. I would love to visit your town, but I am terrified of flying….so that is completely out.
      My guess Salvatore and Giovannina were in their 20’s when they married in the 1870’s……ANY information you can send along would be greatly appreciated.
      Were they from Sorbo Serpico, Voltusaro, or Aviellino???
      I’m truly at a dead end–and need all the help I can get.
      Merry Christmas and a very Happy 2015 New Year….Leigh
