Thank you! Looking up this book has led me to a few others that also sound like good reads.
Researching surnames Nappo, Naples, Napoli, LaRosa, Sorrentino, Gambino. Also searching for info in Poggiomarino.

I would like to know the deep history especially form the area my family came from and perhaps see if there were reasons they left when they did.
