I have been researching my family. Now I have begun on my husband's family. I do not have a lot of info. We believe they came over in the 1900's from Naples to Ellis Island. Settled New York/CT region.
Lucio Salvatore Salerno son of Salvatore "Sam" Salerno & Philomena Tambourino. Lucio married Jennie Reitano daughter of Francesca Crea and Mariani Reitano Their Children: Thomas, Paula, Joseph Antionette, Minerva, Frances, Mary, Jennie. Jennie married Lucio Salvatore Salerno (1910-1977) Children: Carole & Louis Lucio Salvatore Salerno son of Salvatore "Sam" Salerno & Philomena Tambourino. Believe that Salvatore's father was a science professor at a University in Italy near Naples his wife was a dressmaker with a successful storefront (from what I understand, unusual for that period in time).
