Looking for Salemmo from Naples, Italy or somewhere near Naples.
Grandfather's name was Prisco grandmothers name was Rosa Valente. I think grandfather came to America around 1914 grandmother around 1907. Planning a trip to Italy next summer and trying to find my family and my husband's family. I think there are still family in Italy.

Hi, I am breathing life into this old post- are you still interested in Salemmo? Your grandfather was born in the same town as my great-grandfather, Giovanni Duonnolo... Santangelo Infirmis. Prisco chose my great-grandfather to be the godfather of one of his children with his first wife, Catarina Farabella, when they lived in Wilmington, so I am trying to find the connection between our families. Please contact me if you would like to talk.
