Are you looking for the ones in Clarksburg, or a different branch?

If you are looking for the Clarksburg, WV contigent they are from that town.

Totonno,

I didn't realize you were from Italy initially. PM and I can see about getting you in touch with them. As an aside, one of that branch was crowned queen of the WV Italian Heritage festival a few weeks ago.

Hi mr vj and mr fadippides, I am very surprised for the completeness of your information, that illuminate a side of my family which so far I did not know much. As you understand I write from Italy and I am interested in contacting any relatives in America since I plan to visit your beautiful country. Thanks
