I believe my grandfather and his family was from Ripacandida.They settled in Altoona PA.
My grandfather was Donato Antonio. He married Sara Theresa Fusco in Chicago, they had 15 children between Chicago and Altoona. He had one brother who went to Argentina.Some of the family shortened the name to Giosa. I put my grandfathers name on Ellis Island with the original spelling. My e mail is email@example.com
