Valluzzi or Papa from Potenza

Postby jvalluzz » 29 Aug 2009, 23:16

My Grandparents are suppose to have come from Potenza. The family settled in Chicago, Illinois and we think they came to the USA in the early 1900. We think my Grandfather's first name was Giovanni but it may have been Giambattista and my Grandmother's name was Filomena Papa.
