        My name is Nathalia and I saw your message on Italianside.

        We share the same great-great-grand father. My great-grandfather was Carmine Botti, son of Germano Botti. Luigi is listed as one of the witnesses of Carmine’s wedding in Brazil. Carmine and Luigi apparently immigrated to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

        Let’s share information 🙂


    4. I am planning to find my relatives of my paternal grandfather, Biagio Sarnicola, who immigrated from Agropli to NYC in the late 1890’s. He was born in Agropli January 1889 and died in California in 1989, after moving from NYC. I am taking my first trip to Italy next year and am trying to locate relatives that may still be there. Is there a directory of names I could consult? Thank you.
