I don't seem related to the existing Miale stories--or is their a connection in the old world? My grandfather, Gaetano--a barber, and his wife, Maria Ciccarone, came to the US in about 1908 with 3 small children--Peter, Portia (later Rose) and Joseph. They came from a small town outside of Bari (Aquaviva della Fonte?), and left the youngest child Lucia because she was too young to travel. Peter is my father, he married Gizella Szalay and I have a brother, Peter. Joseph married Julie and had Barbara and Judi. Rose never married. T I do not know anything about Gaetano's or Maria's families, whether there were siblings or other family members who came to the US. Does my family sound familiar to anyone?
