Re: Michele Caschetta, Melfi (Potenza) from Cascketta family.
Our of sheer curiousity I tried googling "cascketta" just to see what I would find.Most all of the information was related to my immediate 'Cascketta' family.Then for grins, I tried "caschetta" and the result set included your posting.
Now that you know HOW I found your posting, let me introduce myself and our side of the family.We were told by our elders that there was a mistake that occurred in the Immigration and Naturalization (INS) when my grandfather Alexander Caschetta immigrated to the US.For whatever reason, they wanted the official name to be changed - substituting a "K" for the "CH" in our name.The result was they screwed it up royally by making it CASCKETTA.Leave it to bureacracies to screw up any thing.
Years back, I spoke with my father's brother Maurie Cascketta about our family tree - he specifically mentioned Michael Cascketta and Christina Moccia.The son named Alessandro I believe is my grandfather known as Alex Cascketta.He married Nancy Mundo and their son Michael (Mike) Cascketta was my father.We all lived in a neighborhood called Roseland in Chicago Illinois.
I know I've already given more information than you may need; but I just wanted to let you know our side of the family exists.My family now lives in a suburb of Phoenix Arizona called Gilbert.We would be happy to chat with you about our families.
