Seeking a connection from my mother's family. Her family name was Di Gilio. My grandfather, Dominick Anthony Di Gilio was a pharmacist in Marsicovetere and immigrated with his wife, Teresa Viggiano, and 3 daughters Ita, Elisa and Maria Raffaela in about 1912. My grandfather's father was named Michael. I think my grandfather had a brother named Giuseppe who died in WW1.
I am the only one left and would love to tell my son's something about their heritage.

Thanks for the information, it has given me a place to start. The biggest problem is the way they named the children after grandparents. The same names pop up. I shouldn't complain thanks to Michelle66, Princessbubbles, and sarge I have found out a lot more than I knew.
Hello, I wish to formally thank sarg,bubbles and Italian Geneology for the info on my grandparents. My wife and I will be visiting Italy in September 2014 and have a place in Amalfi; we willbe visiting Marsicovetere and plan to go to the church and do more hunting on the family. Thanks again Yank
