Since my last post I have found that my father's family arrived in the USA from Lettomanopello, Italy in 1920. Gervasio (great-grandfather) arrived in 1916 and settled in Maine at first. Linda (great-grandmother) arrived with 5 children in 1920 from Lettomanopello, Italy. Candida (Aunt Katy), Ribelli (my grandfather), Lilla (Aunt Lily), Roverito (Uncle Revy), Liourge (we think this is Uncle John). Eventually the family moved to New York and had one more child, Joseph (Uncle Joe). Uncle Joe was a Lieutenant in the FDNY, Queens NY.
My grandfather Ribelli went by the name Gilbert and married Francesca Aloi who was known as Frances. The Aloi family was from Sicily with my great-grandparents Giuseppe and Brigeda and their four children, Casper (Uncle Gep), Salvatore (Uncle Sam), Marion (Aunt Marion) and Francesca (my grandmother).
I would love to get more information about any of these relatives and would love to hear from anyone connected to the family. Please write or contact me if you have any information.

My grandma (Antoinette DiSandro Siravo) and my grandpa (Edwardo David Siravo) came to Maumee and settled. They are both gone and I had an uncle in Colli Al Volturno (Michael DiSandro) who had children. These children would be my cousins and all of us cousins in the US are very interested in them and how they are. Would appreciate any information we receive. Thank you!
