I am searching for my relatives in Italy. My Grandfather, Giovanni Piccirillo was born Sep 29, 1888. He came to America in 1902 at the age of 14. On the ships record it stated his home was Colle Sannita, Italy. He was an only child and his parents were Michele Piccirillo and Mary Pozzuto. He had an arranged marriage to Carolina Zappa, born Dec 5,1885, who came to the USA on Aug, 1902. Her parents were Angelo Zappa and Rose Marian My grandfather, Giovanni, and grandmother, Carolina, had 11 children here in the USA. My father was the first born and he was named after both grandfathers. His name was Michael Angelo Piccirillo, born here on Apr. 29, 1908, and died on Dec. 8, 2000. Unfortunately this is all I know. If anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate it. I am returning to Italy in Feb 2005 and would like to meet some of my relatives.
Thank you in advance for you information.
