The Spirito's; from Avellino, Italy to Trenton, NJ USA Updated May 8, 2001
About Our Family Research
I am just beginning my search in hopes of finding ancestoral information as it pertains to my surname Spirito, originally DiSpirito. As far as I know, my father's family came from the province of Avellino, and possibly from one of two towns, Montemorano and Castleforte. My great grandfather Spirito immigrated to Ellis Island in the late 1800's and it is there that the name was changed from DiSpirito to Spirito. The family moved to the Trenton, NJ area and my grandfather Steven, was one of several children including, brother Pasquale and Sister Tina.
