Annuciata Foundling Home/Hospital c. 1883

Postby DIAMOND925 » 04 Aug 2014, 20:48

My grandfather was born in 1883 to parents unknown and I believe in the Naples area ... he talked about the Annunciata Founding Hospital and that is where he believed he was born and/or left and given the name Donato Garofola (when he came to the US (Newark, NJ) coming through Ellis Island his name Garofola was changed to Carofola ... I know he also had a foster sister named Marie who married my Grandmother's brother, whose last name was Cicalese, and they lived in Nocera, Italy ... would love to find out any information about his birth, foster mother, sister and any family ... my grandfather died in Newark NJ in 1973 at the age of 90. Also any Cicalese family ... anyone on this website.

Erudita why do you duplicate the initial inquiry?? its very distracting and disturbing since you swallow space for no reason?
