I'm Trying To Determine Where My Family Came From

Postby Thomas1968 » 13 Jan 2015, 06:54

Angelo James Rinaldi (1938-1998) - Born and lived in Cleveland , Ohio

Salvatore Rinaldi (1912-1952) Wife - Victoria

Angelo Rinaldi (?) / Wife - Elizebeth Della Ci*Pa ( The spelling is of Salvatore's Death Certificate )



I am trying to determine where the family came from....I was told Sicily , but I'm not sure....Angelo and Salvatore are listed as being born in Italy , so I assume they arrived in 1912 or later....I would be thankful for any help that could be provided....Thank You !

I didn't realize that this had posted twice - Apologies....I do Greatly Appreciate the help....This family appears to have moved around a lot....The Angelo above appears to have been born in Camigliano in 1874....He was married in Vitulazio in June of 1904 and had a son Antonio born in Pignataro Maggiore in 1910....I still am uncertain where Angelo's other son , Salvatore , was born in 1912 or where Angelo's Father Giovanni was born....I'm trying to find the Family's Ancestoral Town where , I assume they spent at least a few generations .
