Forgione of Avolino?

Post by kgl » 03 Dec 2003, 17:52

Looking for any information on the Forgione family from Torella,Avolino. Michael, Frank, Nicholas, and Joseph emmigrtated to the USA from Naples in the early 1900's and settled on the north shore of Long Island NY. They left behind a sister named Lucy. My mother in law had only oral family history, so my spellings of the towns may be off.
If you have any information on either the family or the town, I'd love to hear form you!

Thanks! This is the first time I've been able to get any info on this name. My mother-in-law's parents emmigrated in the early 1900's, and I found some info at the Ellis Island site. Are there any churches that would keep records?
