Thank you so much, Marty! This is a huge find for our family tree! Do you by chance have access to information on Arnaldo Antonio Isolino, Birth 22 Sept 1903 in Lupara, Molise, Italy? He was my grandfather. Fought in WW2 and was in Ethiopia for many years during the war. He married 1930 Age: 27 Campobasso, Molise, Italy to Cremia Amorosi, she died during childbirth, and he married Teresa Amorosi in 1931. (my grandmother), daughter of Antonio Amorosi and Giulia Carmela Niro. I believe Arnaldo Antonio Isolino's mother was Ursula Venditelli, probably of Lupara, Molise, Italy. She had a brother who was quite a character in town, Guiseppe "Pepino" Venditelli, born circa 1870. Thanks so much!!!

I went back and just reread your last reply. I just noticed that you stated that Antonio was a "foundling".Does that mean he was abandoned by his birth mother and raised by someone else? Do we know the name of either mother? or other family? Wow, I never knew that about my grandfather! thank you!
