MY FATHER SIRO VINEIS CAME FROM ITALY 1920.HE WAS BORN IN
BORGO SAN LORENZO,MONGRANDO NEAR THE CITY OF BIELLA.HIS PARENTS WERE REGIS VINEIS AND ANGELA VALLIVERO.THEY MARRIED IN 1893.MY FATHER HAD 3 BROTHERS. LEON, LINO AND BRUNO. LEON STAYED IN ITALY,LINO AND BRUNO WENT TO LIVE IN FRANCE (NEAR CHARTRES)AND MY FATHER,SIRO CAME TO THE U.S.IN APRIL,1920. HERE, IN THE U.S. HE MET AND MARRIED TERESA COSSAVELLA IN NOV. 1922. MY MOTHER CAME FROM THE SMALL VILLAGE OF ZUBIENA, A COUPLE MILES AWAY FROM MONDGRANDO.
MY PARENTS HAD 2 CHILDREN ,MY SISTER EMILIA(MILLIE)AND I BRUNO VINEIS. MY SISTER AND I WERE BOTH BORN IN NEW YORK CITY ON THE WEST SIDE ,37 STREET NEAR NINTH AVE.

WE WENT TO SCHOOL IN MANHATTAN ON THE EAST SIDE IN THE EAST HARLEM NEIGHBORHOOD. I REMEMBER WE LIVED RIGHT OFF FIFTH AVE, AND MAYOR LAGUARDIA LIVED UP THE CORNER. CENTRAL PARK WAS OUR PLAYGOUND AND WE SPENT MANY HAPPY HOURS THERE BY THE LAKE. DURING WORLD WAR II WHILE I WAS IN THE ARMY MY PARENTS MOVED UP TO THE BRONX.. AT FIRST WE LIVED NEAR THE BRONX ZOO BUT YEARS LATER WE MOVED TO THE PELHAM BAY SECTION OF THE BRONX. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL AREA.

MY SISTER, MILLIE VINEIS MARRIED WILLIAM AMATRUTO AND HAS 2 CHILDREN ,BILLY AMATRUTO OF MANCHESTER, VT. AND DENISE AMATRUTO HALLORAN OF PHOENIX,ARIZONA.

BILLY AND JENNIFER AMATRUTO HAVE 2 GIRLS,LAURA AND SARA.NOW ATTENDING SCHOOL IN VERMONT
DENISE AMATRUTO HALLORAN AND DONALD HAVE 2 GIRLS ALEXIS AND LAUREN.BOTH HAVE GRADUATED FROM COLLEGE IN 2001.ALEXIS IS MARRIED AND LIVING IN BATON ROUGE,LOUISIANA AND LAUREN IS WORING IN CHICAGO,ILL.

WHAT I HAVE RESEARCHED,IS THAT, "THE VINEIS'S" ARE A VERY SMALL GROUP. THE MAJORITY LIVE IN THE NORTHERN ITALY AREA OF PIEDMONTE. THIS IS THE AREA THAT INCLUDES THE CITIES OF MILANO AND TORINO ,I HAVE FOUND ON THE INTERNET THAT 143 "VINEIS" FAMILIES LIVE IN ITALY . THERE ARE SOME 38 "VINEIS" THAT LIVE IN FRANCE, 2 "VINEIS'S" THAT LIVE IN SPAIN AND QUITE SURPRISING ABOUT 43 "VINEIS" FAMILIES THAT LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES. IN THE SCOPE OF THINGS THIS IS A VERY SMALL FAMILY , APPROXIMATELY 220 IN THE WHOLE WORLD
WHERE THE ORIGIN OF THE VINEIS CAME FROM I DO NOT KNOW FOR SURE. BUT, THE CONVERSATIONS I HAD WITH MY FATHER AND MY UNCLES WHEN I WAS A YOUNG MAN, THEY ALL TOLD THE SAME STORY.
WHAT THEY SAID, WAS THAT MY GRANDFATHERS REGIS HAD A BROTHER WHO LIVED IN ROMANIA WHO HAD A GENEOLGY SEARCH DONE IN THE LATE 1890 EARLY 1900. ACCORDING TO THAT GENEALOGY SEARCH,TWO BROTHER CAME FROM SPAIN SOME TIME IN THE 14,15 OR 16 CENTURIES AND SETTLE IN PIEDMONTE. HOW THEY CAME OR THE REASON WHY IS UNKNOW. THAT IS THE GENEALOGY HISTORY MY FAMILY TELLS. AS TO IT'S ACCURACY I HAVE NO FACTS OR PROOF OF THAT.
ONE VINEIS I HAVE MET ,BELIEVES,THE VINEIS CAME FROM THE AREA OF AUSTRIA .
BEING THAT WE VINEIS ARE SUCH A SMALL GROUP IT WOULD BE GREAT IF SOME HOW, WE COULD HAVE SOME SORT OF FAMILY RESEARCH AND COMMUNICATION.I REMEMBER AS A YOUNG MAN IN NEW YORK CITY GERCA 1946 .THAT THERE WERE PIEMONTESE SOCIETY,ONE WAS CALLED "THE BIELLAESE". THIS SOCIETY WOULD HOLD A YEARLY DANCE AND NEWS WAS CIRCULATED VIA A NEWS LETTER.


IF ANY VINEIS HAS ANY INFORMATION ON THE ORIGIN OF THE VINEIS OR ON THE HISTORY OF THE VINEIS IN ITALY OR AMERICA I WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO HEAR FROM YOU . BRUNO VINEIS ,7851 TRAP WAY ,WILMINGTON , NORTH CAROLINA ,28412 910-799-4962 . vineisb@bellsouth.net
