I am doing family research too. My grandfather came from Serino, Italy and his name was Pasquale Di Zenzo, he also settled in Conn. Got to be related. If I run across any of the names you posted I will be sure to let you know. My great grandfather was Emilio Di Zenzo, he was born in Serino in 1881 and came to Conn. later as well, could possibly be cousins or even closer with your grandfather.
