Fiore from Altavilla

Postby FeliciaFiore » 31 May 2012, 22:37

I have been making slow progress in the quest for paternal grandmother (thanks for all the help!), and now, I am asking for help with paternal grandfather.
I have discovered my father's father was Luigi Fiore who arrived in NYC in 1904 when he was 24. He traveled with his sister, Pasqualina Fiore (18) and were met by a brother in NY, Pellegrino. The town listed as place of residence is Altavilla, which i have discovered is a pretty generic term. They departed from Naples, and from what we heard, they were from the naples area. Any suggestions as how I could narrow down the "Altavilla" lead??? Thanks so much!
