I am researching Angelina Caputo (Carputo) and Vincenzo Lanza. Not sure when they arrived in the US. They were born around 1860 or before I believe somewhere in Calabria Italy.. They had a daugher named Maria (Marietta) who married a Frank Fabiano. Maria arrived in America sometime around 1900. Maria and Frank had several children. Their daughter Anna married a Michael D'Amore also from New Rochelle. Anna passed away very young and left a young daughter named Consuela. She was raised by Michael's parents, the D'amores Would love to hear from any of the family members &/or friends. Thank you..

Thanks so much Suanj! Most of those facts I have in my ancestry account already. You must have used my Ancestry Tree.. Also, I just discovered that my Maria Lanza may have spelled her name "Lonzo" and that her mother's last name may have been Carputo instead of Caputo. I received her Social Security application form with those spellings. However, I will certainly look into the Family Search items. I will try and go to our local Family research Center and look through them. Thanks again. Please keep in touch.
I am new to this, originally came from New Rochelle and just discovered your earlier post...My mother and father were very good friends with a Pete and Mary Lanza in New Rochelle...I believe they had a son named Joseph...There was a Pete Caputo who worked at Stephenson Elementary School in the 1950s...I don't know if any of this is helpful...good luck with your search
Thanks for your response joegov. The names Lanza & Caputo are in our Family Tree but I don't have a Pete or a Mary. Are you by any chance familiar with the Fabiano's of Kingston NY? Please keep in touch if you have any further info and I will do the same.
