The surname was FORGIONE but was changed to FORJOHN. My father in law gave me the following information and this is the generation that would have changed to FORJOHN.. due to jobs.
My paternal grandparents had the following children - my uncles and aunt: Philip - chemical engineer
Peter - lifelong career at Philadelpia Ship Yard
Ralph - had a bar in west Philadelphia
Henry - chemical engineer, headed Allentown for major US insurance company
Horatio - artist: Pennsylvania Museum & School of Industrial Art (My father)
George - insurance
Josephine - my Aunt - a little person 44 inches tall.
A male child who died about age 12, I don't know his name
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to find my wifes family history, her father and mother were born (We think) in Macchiagodena.
Her father was Michele Carile (dec) born May 6th 1921 and her mother is Domenica Carile (Palermo) born June 18th 1920. They have three (3) daughters: Angela Born in Macchiagodena, Maria Born in Macchiagodena, Lucia Born in Western Australia (This one I married). They left Macchiagodena in the late 1950's dad first then mother in 1958 on the SS Neptunia.
We have very little information about their history in Italy and of the family
and would love to hear from anyone that knew of them or could direct me to where I could obtain birth, marriage certificates for them or of their parents, grandparents etc.
Thank you in advance for any information
Ciao a tutti,
Grazie per avere un grande sito web.
Sto cercando di trovare la storia familiare di mia moglie, il padre e la madre sono nati (si pensa) a Macchiagodena. Suo padre è Michele Carile (dicembre) nato il 6 Maggio 1921 e sua madre è Domenica Carile (Palermo) nata il 18 Giugno 1920. Essi hanno tre (3) figlie: Angela nata a Macchiagodena, Maria nato a Macchiagodena, Lucia nato in Australia occidentale (che io ho sposato). Hanno lasciato Macchiagodena alla fine del 1950 il padre prima, nel 1958, poi la madre sulla SS Neptunia.
Abbiamo pochissime informazioni circa la loro storia in Italia e della famiglia
e vorremmo contatti da chi li conosceva o che possa indirizzarmi dove ottenere certificati di nascita e matrimonio per loro o dei loro genitori, nonni ecc.
Ringrazio in anticipo per qualsiasi informazione. Saluti

I am also looking for more information on family etc. I see some Carusi's went to the stated, some even of the same name.
There are many Carusi's in Australia and all seem to be related, from Darwin to South Australia. Ciao

My father was born in Montreal (1921-2003) the family moved west to Hamilton area, my grandfather started a lumber business however, shortly thereafter developed tuberculosis at age 28...He was quarantined for 5 years until his death. By necessity they moved east to Trenton area.
Any information would be helpful and obviously contact by Colasante(i) in the Pescara district would be great.

Meus avós paternos (Bozzella Amalia e Nicola Francesco) casaram-se e formaram sua familia nesta cidade. Não tive a alegria de conhecer meu avó, uma vez que o mesmo faleceu na 2ª guerra. Estou tentando fazer a nossa arvore genealogica e gostaria de saber se ainda existem parentes do meu pai Celestino Ulacco e ele veio para o Brasil no ano de 1916. Eu tenho muita esperança que um dia ele possa retornar a cidade de Villa Alfonsina e rever sua estoria. Ficaria muito feliz se houvesse retorno. abraços
