Wish I talked to you while we were at Chris's house during the Crawfish boil. I'm the one from Portland, Or. I finally made time to read the message board and have enjoyed your stories.
Was your Grandmother Maria Concetta Rando d.07-May-1890 Ustica. She is my 2nd Great Grandaunt and Antonio is my 1st cousin 4 times removed.
My 2nd Grt Grandfather is Giuseppe Antonio Rando b. 02-Mar-1830 an d my GGrdmother was Paola Rando b. 01-Nov-1863 who married Antonino Palmisano. My Grandmother Rosina Palmisaono married Giuseppe Bertucci and he is from the Giovanni Bertucci - Dominica Cassara tree. My 4th GrtGrandfather was Pietro who married Rosa Calderaro.
My family is a Ustica-NOLA-California connection. I was born in SF.
I was abe to make contact last month with a Caserta and Spano fa mily that we used to visit during the 40's. I had pictures of the families but did not know how I was connected. I found out how we were connected. Will write up the story later.
I'm leaving for NOLA on Thursday for my mother funeral Angelina Picone-Bertucci(Her father was Giuseppe "Dub" Picone and mother Marguerite Palmisano)and return on Monday.
