Hi all... first post here.I found it completely by accident.. by Googling my own name in fact! :)
Here is what I know of my family history-- maybe some of you out there can help me put some pieces together.
My name is Richard Louis Aiello, Jr.(12/12/1970).My father is, of course, Richard Louis Aiello, Sr. (01/07/1938).His brother is Rev. John D. Aiello (11/28/1940) and their sister is Rita Aiello (Seliga) (05/04/1946).
My grandfather's name was Luigi Aiello.He was born in Italy in 1903 and died in 1969.He emigrated to the United States on October 14, 1922. (I have seen the Ellis Island manifest of his arrival.)
His father's name was Gaetano Aiello (unsure of birthdate).He reportedly had many sons and daughters with more than one wife.When my grandfather came to America he stayed with his brother I do not know any of my relatives outside of my immediate family.I know I have distant cousins from Italy to California to points in the world that I could never even imagine.My grandparents and my uncle have traveled to Italy and California over the years and had some relationship with these extended family members, but my father never had the opportunity to do so.
Sorry for the long-winded question... I'm just looking for some of my extended family-- wherever you may be!Hope to hear back from you soon!
