The Albert J. Saporito Family of Sacramento, CA

About Our Family Research

As second generation Italian Americans, we have found it difficult to trace the roots of our family back to Italy because of language differences and the general lack of verifiable source materials. We do not speak Italian and the names of ancestors have evolved from the original Italian to the Americanized version which often do not provide specific evidence of a match.

Due to traditional European lifestyles, it would seem that we should easily uncover the roots of our family in some small village in Italy but the tiny initial links to our past are missing except for the names of the towns listed below we believe our ancestors emigrated from. Perhaps those Italians with the same surnames in these towns or regions will make the effort to contact us with information on our heritage.

My wife, Angelrose Magliocco, and I understand that we are the last generation of all Italian ancestry in our line because three of our four children have spouses of various other ethnicities. It is our hope that this venue will be successful in helping us discover our past and the people responsible for giving us the opportunity to live in this wonderful, incredible free society which continues to offer the promise of a future inherently better for our children than anything our great-great grandparents in Italy could ever have imagined.
