Joe Sperlunto`s FamilyUpdated October 9, 2001
I have been researching my Family for two years.So
far I found nine cousins that I dident know were in
Taranto Italy.The family got it`s start in the pro-
vince of Basilacoto,Potenza.My Grandfather ran away
from home after finishing an apprenticeship as a tai-
lor.I have searched the records at Ellis Island,but
I cant find him I think he came to this country befor
they kept records.His name was Francisco Sperlunto.He
married my Grandmother in South Philadelphia.Her name
was Grace Grazziano They had nine children.I think
they lived around 7th and Cathryn Sts.
