Valenti/Valente's in Cosenza

Postby ktladybug08 » 25 Sep 2016, 21:59

Hi there! My great grandfather was Carmine/Carl Valente (b. 1901) and married to Pasqualina Imbrogno (b. 1899). He moved to the Cleveland area along with his siblings Eugenio, Pasquale, and Frank. His brother Michele (Mike) and sister Louise moved to Canada, while his sister, Chiara (Clara), and brothers Mariano (Mario) and Oreste stayed in Italy. They lived in the Calabria region (Zumpano, Lappano), but most of the family is now in Turin or Rovito, Italy.

Their parents were Giuseppe Valente (b. 1874) and Divina Imbrogno (b. 1878). Giuseppe had a sister, Gelsomina Nigro (b. 1882) and brother, Giorgio (b. 1890) who also moved to the Cleveland area, while he stayed behind in Italy. He also had a sister Maria, who I have no information about and a brother, Nicola, who I believe was born in 1880 and moved to the Allegheny region of Pennsylvania.

This is a lot of information to process, but if anyone has any leads (or think we might be related), please message me back. Thank you.
