My grandfather's mother and father are originally from Fragola near Naples. I am looking for relatives. He is 89 years of age right now and his parents passed young so we are looking for any possible relatives. He is very curious and i am helping him out. His mother was named Elizabeth Capasso. Her father was Ralph Capasso who came here in the late 1800's. His father, was James Russo, who immigrated to the US alone in approx. 1918. He is also from the same town. Any information or possible relatives out there??
the town is AFRAGOLA in Napoli province.... by LDS Mormon's microfilms you can find all genealogic tree because it are the microfilms from 1809 to 1953(!...great!)

I found this on Ancestry in the 1920 Census in Amherst, Lorain, Ohio. I believe the youngest member of this household is the grandfather you say is now 89 years old. James Thomas Russo.
