My name is Larry Romagnino. Both of my parents were born in Delianuova. My father was Arcangelo Natale Romagnino, b 23 Dec 1884. His parents were Lorenzo R, b 7 April 1854 Paracorio and Caterina Battista, b 19 Feb 1858 in Castellace, Reggio Calabria. I have the Romagninos and the Battistas going back into the late 1700s.
My mother was Grazia Maria Rechichi, b 2 Jan 1896 Delianuuova. Her parents were Domenico Antonio R and Grazia Maria Messina, b 10 Sept 1869. On her side this is as far as I am aable to go . Domenico Antonios parents were Franciscantonio R, b 10 Oct 1818 in Pedavoli,and Grazia Maria Demarte, b 2 April 1823. Franciscantonios parents were Giuseppe R, b abt 1791 and Maria Giuseppa Carilli b abt 1791. His parents were Francisco R, b abt 1763, and Antonia Vocisano, b abt 1772. Maria Giuseppas parents were Giambattista Carilli, d 1814 and Caterina Attisano, b abt 1762.
Both Paracario andd Pedavoli, as you may be aware were merged in the late 1860s or early 70s to form what is now Delianuova.
I am connected with other names in Delianuova but so far no Orlandos.
As a child I was taken to Delianuova by my Uncle Agostino Romagnino, when he went to back, in 1924 to Delianuova to marry Giuseppina Leuzzi.
Would like to hear from you about your trip and maybe we have some connection.
I was born in Kane. Pa,on 4 Dec 1919. My wife, Annelies Imhof,and I live in Garden Grove, CA. Were do you live?
