My step-grandmother, Rose (PASSABILE) BOCCHIMUZZO, daughter of Teresa CARUSO, does not want to give any information out on the family.She was married to my grandfather Giuliano BOCCHIMUZZO, son of Amalia CARUSO, making them first cousins.But she did slip that her father Frederico's parent were killed in an earthquake in Italy and he was raised by a woman, maybe his babysitter.Also, there are a lot more PASSABILE children.
If any of this sounds familiar, I would love to hear from you.
