Diane,

You might check the Italian Genealogical Group's database for naturalization and/or marriage information. I located a couple of possibles but do not have enough information to post.

Do you have a year of birth for Giovanni Nappi and/or a year of immigration? Years of birth and place of birth for his children?

Found this on the IGG site under Military Naturalizations.

Surname/First Name/Year of birth/Vol#/Petition#/File/Country of Origin

Nappi / O'Neil / 1894/ 26 / 6369 / WW I Camp Upton / Italy

I know Aniello was 8 when he came here so he may have come here about 1903 or so. Thats all I have :( . I was told Giovanni was a shoemaker. in Brooklyn. I'll check out those postings and see what I find Thanks

it is possible that Giovanni Nappi has married with Francesca or Chiara Gregorio and has had sons with she? In my family I find Iolanda Nappi, or Violanda Nappi.
You know Orlando Arlotta, Ferdinand Arlotta?
I apologize for the intrusion, but I am researching my family tree and I found your name on Google.
I am Giuseppe Romeo and I live in Perugia, Italy. I am originally from Librizzi, Sicilia.
My grandmother, Rosaria Gregorio, had several siblings who moved to America in approximately 1900. They were Gioacchino (Jack), Francesca (Frances), and a sister, whose name I do not know, I think Chiara (Claire?). Claire Gregorio has married with a man called "Serraino". Francesca (Frances) Gregorio has married with a man called "Arlotta" end, after, with a man called "Nappi".
Francesca has had sure two sons: Alfred Arlotta and Ferdinando Arlotta and, I think, Jolanda or Violanda Nappi
I believe they lived in Brooklyn and in Newark until the late 1970's. I want to learn more about these relatives and their descendants and, hopefully, restore contact with them.
Do you happen to know them or their whereabouts? Any help or information you might have would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks for your time and attention.
