I am glad to see such a forum for the Rubano family.I have been compiling data for my family for a couple of years now but I get stuck at the trip from Italy to New York - the information gets real skimpy there.I would love to share with any other Rubanos.
My father is Patsy Rubano, 4/12/1922 - 4/30/1991. His father was John Rubano, born in Roccadaspede, Salerno Italy and his father was Pasquale Rubano, also born in Roccadaspede, Salerno Italy. Pasquale's children were John, Carmela, Archangelo, Julius, Sinfarosa, Giovannina, Antonio, and a 4th girl whose name I don't know.
If anyone can offer some advice on how to go about researching decendents within Italy I would appreciate it.
