Hi ddiger:
I am a DiGeronimo also, born and raised in Montclair, NJ. If you are from there - or know people who are - you know that our family name is a very popular one in that town and in Essex County in general. My great-grandfather was also Angelo, though unfortunately not your Angelo. Anyway, all of our extended family are from Lacedonia and it's environs in Avellino and have been settling in Montclair as far back as I can see, in the mid-nineteenth century.
I'm not sure exactly what you are looking for, but if I can be of assistance I would be more than glad. I was going to suggest to Nuccia that she link the 1930 census that she found with Cristina because it sounded like she was in the hospital there and I wanted to take a look - but it seems you figured that out. But, seriously, I may have information. Feel free to send me a private message, if you'd rather.

Hi, I'm Donato DiGeronimo. Someone from this forum contacted me a few months ago and I'm sorry to say that I lost the email. It came around the time my mother passed away and got lost in the shuffle

I'm 59 yrs old and I have worked on the Montclair Fire Dept for 30 yrs. I was raised in Montclair, NJ and have over 800 relatives in North Jersey. My father's mother, Rose Sandora (Santoro) was born in Newark, NJ. Her family emigrated from San Fele, province of Potenza in Basilicata. She had a twin sister, Mary. The sisters married two DiGeronimo brothers and had 15 and 13 children. Most of the DiGeronimos' in this area were generated by these two couples.

Since 1996, I've traveled to the DiGeronimo home town of Lacedonia, province of Avellino in Campania. I have some knowledge of those who immigrated. I also have relatives there that may be able to help research some ancestors.

Both sides of my mother's family were also from Lacedonia. She was a Pelullo and her mother's family was Festa, related to the Giannetti's in some way.

I have been involved for the past 5 years in a history project about the Italians of Montclair.

I can be contacted at Donato48@aol.com or 973-857-1489.

Hi there

I wasn't the one who contacted you but my great grandmother, Rosa Santoro lived in San Fele. I don't believe she ever immigrated but married Pietroangelo Lorenzo and had a son Sebastiano who left for NYC in 1898 and later lived in New Jersey with his wife Maria Romano. I wonder if there is a connection.
