Hi Joe, I've been doing this for quite sometime now. Have my line back to the mid 1700's. My great grandfather Salvatore came here from Caposele, Avelono, Italy in 1887. He lived in Newark, NJ. I have living relatives in CT to this day, an uncle and all his family. I suspect that somewere way back we may all be related, but have not found that common link as yet. I'd be happy to help you in your search anyway I can.
