My family originated from reggio calabria. Cosimo Argiro, my Dad and family moved to Turino Italy at age 15. Foursisters and 3 brothers started there families in Turino. Cosimo decided to move to Canada leaving the rest in Turino. He started the rest of his family three sons in Toronto Canada. We all still live here happily.
My Dads graqndfather imigrated to the USA in the 1920's. He beagn working with the railroads where he supposedly was killed according to a letter received back home in Calabria to his wife which Cosimo took under his wings for the rest of her reminaing life. No other documentation was sent to them. We all still keep in touch with the family in Turino.
This story is quite ironic due to the fact that the imigration was in the 1920s.There is no one with this last name in Calabria any longer. They all live in Turino and Canada and as I can see now in the year 2007 also inthe United states of America. in the Valle of Sussa the outskirts of Turino. Where the winter olympics were held.
