Hi Mariana, My great grandfather Amedeo Torcaso came to the US from Catanzaro, Italy (unsure of date) and settled in Pittsburgh. He and my great grandmother, Isabelle Laface Torcaso, who came to the US after him, had 3 children Albert, Carmella and Frederick. My mom is Frederick's daughter. Albert, Carmella and my grandfather are gone now so getting info about the family is difficult. I have just begun to research the Torcaso family myself so perhaps as we each discover info we can share it with one another. Regards, Sandy Fleming P.S. My mom says that my grandfather was also known as TURK, too!
