About Our Family Research

I started research on my family history a bit late in life. I
am the youngest of ten children of Michele and Maria Antonio , who imigrated to Brooklyn, N.Y. ,from Pignola, Potenza,Italy, in 1907. Being the youngest,(70 years old), I know very little
about my family history. Anyone who would have any personal
knowledge of my family has long been deceased. I do have three
sisters still living, but their knowledge and memories are
clouded by time.

Happily, my wife and I had the pleasure of visiting Pignola
for a week during the summer of 2000. We were able to see the church where my parents were baptized and stand on the altar
where they were married in 1906.We were able to obtain a copy
of their marriage certificates (Civil and Church). Everyone was
very helpful, considering our communication was limited by the
language barrier.
