Hola, mi nombre es Ariel Sanfrancesco, vivo en Balcarce (Buenos Aires, Argentina). Ayúdenme, por favor, estoy buscando información acerca de mis parientes en Italia y Chicago en principio. Mis abuelos son Giuseppe Sanfrancesco (1898-1982) y Donatella Cantore (1900-1995) nacidos en Muro Lucano. Mi abuelo vino a Argentina en 1925 y mi abuela en 1938 con sus hijos Pedro y Carmela, luego nacieron aquí Antonio (mi papá) y María. Los hermanos de mi abuelo Luigi Sanfrancesco y otro que no recuerdo fueron a Chicago. Los hermanos de mi abuela Luigi Cantore, María Luisa Cantore y María Jesusa Cantore fueron a Chicago en 1916 o 1917 aproximadamente. Los hermanos Francesco Sanfrancesco y María Gerarda Cantore se quedaron en Muro Lucano. Tengo una foto de Francesco Sanfrancesco en 1945 y otra de sus hijos Pietro, Giuseppe y Felicella. Le agradezco cualquier información.

Laura I just found the comments by a Marc Moccia. if his ancestors are from Castelvetere Su Calore, Province of Avellino, than we have a link. Recently i have been tracing my Pagliuca- Tosto ancestors from Castelpagano and Colle Sannita Italy in the US and found that they moved around a lot by reading a 1900 and 1910 census, a death certificate , and a ship passenger list.

My grandfather Giuseppe Lero was said to be the son of a man named Di Napoli, in Potenza. He was born 1884-5. The mothers name I don't know yet, but it was not Di Napoli's wife. Where the name Lero or Lara came from I don't know. He came to the U.S.A. around 1906 with his wife following with their two girls in 1907? The wife's name was Rosa Bulfaro.

Hi! My fathers family is from Muro Lucano. I'm told that an American citizen can obtain Italian citizenship if he/she can prove his lineage to grandparents from Italy. Do you have any suggestions of tracing the name Zariello or Carbornara from Muro Lucano?

Hello! I am finding out a lot about my family and have had some great success stories too. We even had a re(union) with my mother's first cousins in Italy and I think it was successful thanks to one of your relatives. We traveled to Scanno and asked a woman in the tourism bureau if she recognized any of the names on a list we had. One of the names was FUSCO. She said that this was her aunt and that her aunt and my grandmother were best friends. She then showed us where we could find my mother's 1st cousin and it was the MOST wonderful experience!!!
Looking for any one related to the Zaccardo or Cassies of Orange NJ.

Hi Laura--what a nice site--I'm happy for you that you have had good success in your search for family. I tried for many years with very little luck and finally hired a professional researcher in Italy for the info I was looking for. Then last fall I visited there and had a wonderful time. I'm still searching for relatives in the US--no luck so far. Again, Laura, nice to see your page--stay well and God bless---Michael G
Ciao Laura! it's Giulio, how are you? Just find your GREAT site. I'm leaving to Calabria in a few days and I hope to visit Pignola and Muro as well. Greetings to all the friends.

I was searching for Muro Lucano (ML) and found your great web page. My Father and Grandfather and Grandmother immigrated from ML in 1912. Apparently no DeLurgios (or DiLurgios) in ML but possibly near by. Thanks for a great site. Steve

Siamo agli inizi del' 900. Tre gionani fratelli, Michelangelo, Francesco e Maria Rosa decidono di lasciare il paese natìo, Rivello, i loro legami d'affetto, per emigrare in Brasile e costruirsi lì un futuro, altrimenti negato dalla povertà. Un discendente ne racconta con passione la storia, addentrandosi anche nelle vicende storiche di Rivello. Sito in portoghese, in previsione le versione italiana ed inglese.

Hi: Just cruising the web looking for Pagliaroli ancestors and came upon your site. Nice work! My grandfather (Antonio) was born in Italy and came to the U.S. via N.Y.C. where he lived and raised his children prior to moving the family to Rahway, N.J. where I was born and raised. I remember him well as a good family man. He passed on when I was seventeen. Best of luck and good wishes to you and yours. Barry Pagliaroli
Nice Site! I am looking for Fusco & Rapone from L'Aquila.
