Beyond to having "genealogy" information I am also trying to trace the relatives still while still alive.

Ciao Silvia, sembra che Anna de Pilla e Raffaele De Pilla fossero zio e nipote, infatti la prima è figlia di Ernesto il secondo è il fratello di Ernesto...
nel 1920 questa era la famiglia:
1920 United States Federal Census
about Raffaele Dipilla

dalla data di nascita e andando allo stato civile di San Severo puoi controllare se era effettivamente lo zio( in seguito marito) di Anna come sembra....
Invece Irma De Pilla immigrata nel 1913, sembra fosse la cognata di Raffaele e figlia anche di Ernesto... 8O il viaggio è cancellato e quindi è partita effettivamente dopo qualche tempo....

si è l'unica discendenza di cui sa qualcosa... ma penso che sia interessata più o meno a tutto ciò che riguarda la famiglia....

Hi Laura and suanj.......

There is a phone number for Michael in Chicago but it's a personal number and I don't want to post it. I would be happy to call on Monday and find out if he is related or not. And give him the site address here so he can talk to silvia. Can you ask Silvia what her relationship is to the people that sailed in 1910 and 1913 so I can relay that information to Michael. Also tell her that Dominic, who is 92, I believe is still alive. There was info but was listed as private so I have no access to it. This Dominic could be the Dominic that married Adelina.

Let me know. Thanks

Hi

Just to let you know.......I called the Michael that I found and had posted about.......apparently Silvia had already emailed him.......so suanj and Laura no need to translate the first message I posted, someone must have already given her the information.

If he was born in Cortale (located in Catanzaro Province) the real surname would have probably been Frontera. In local dialect it is pronounced Fronchera. There were a huge number of people from Cortale who immigrated to the Chicago area.
