Capristo family

Postby mikecapristo » 14 Jul 2012, 22:34

My father, his brothers, my grandfather and grandmother immigrated from a small village named Bocchigliero to the Pittsburgh area around 1900. My father's name was Michele. His 2 brothers were Fracesco and Guiseppe. His father's name was Nicola Capristo and is mother's name was Liberata Bianco. I am trying to find information about our family ancestry. Can anyone help?
