Berardino Renzella

Postby SteveDiGi71 » 09 Aug 2013, 03:35

Hi!

I have just started to recently trace my family roots. My Grandad passed away before I was born, he passed away in 1961 in the USA. My Grandpa is Berardino Renzella born in 1901 in I believe Castiglione. I'm trying to find the names of his siblings, His parents were Carmen and Carmelle Renzella. I know he had one sister who came to Italy, Maria Renzella DiBatista. My mom believes he had 7 sisters and a brother, Pepine (I may have the spelling wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated or any hints to lead me in the right direction!! Thank you so much!!
