My maternal grandfather's name was Michael Credidio. He was Albanese (northern Italy)but he had at least one brother who lived in Brazil. He came to New York with 5 dollars in his pocket in the early 1900's, during the European immigration period. He married a woman from Avellina, Italy (Naples) and had 3 daughters. He died in 1967. Two of his daughters have passed away. My mother, the youngest, is 81 years old now and still alive.
