looking for my relatives in Italy

Postby renada » 28 Feb 2006, 00:08

My name is Renada,
I don't know or ever met any of my relatives from in Italy. I am deparately seeking information to find my relatives. Both my parents are dececeased & I would like to know my ancestry & find any surviving relatives.
My father was from Gravina his name was Lawrence Cantore. I believe he & his family migrated to the USA when he was 10 years old to Brooklyn NY. His father's name was Pasqaulino Cantore.
My mother was from Cetara. Her surname was Di Siana. I know she had a brother named Alfonso that was an adopted war orphan. Also she has some cousins still there.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

thank you very much for the lead. I will look through my records to see if any of the information matches up. Hopefully it will & I'll have somewhere to start looking.
