My name is Robert Feraco. I am a lawyer in Edmonton (Home of the Oilers). I was born and raised here, although my family originates from (surprise, surprise)...Italy. My parents, Nicola and Edda (nee Pino) Feraco were born in Italy and immigrated to Canada in the late 1950's. My paternal grandparents (Guiseppe and Teresa Feraco)are from Terrati (near Lago) in the province of Cosenza. I did not know my great grandparents, however, I understand that they were also from Terrati.
My grandfather, Guiseppe Feraco, passed away a few years ago in Terrati. My grandmother, Teresa, still lives there.
Guiseppe and Teresa had 5 children, of which my father, Nicola, is the oldest. He was followed by Carmine (also of Edmonton), Maria (who passed away in Edmonton about 10 years ago), Franco (of Cosenza, Italy) and Lina (now an Alto-Italiana living in Veneto).
My parents have 5 children:
Cathy (in Edmonton, born 1959)
Joe (in Edmonton, born 1962)
Robert (that's me, born 1964)
Sandra (now a Floridian, born 1969)
David (in Edmonton, born 1973).
I am going to get some information about my Great Grandma and Grandpa Feraco from my father and will post the same later.
