The families I have the least information on in my family are the Zimmardi's and the Autorino's. If anyone has any information, please let me know. This is what I have:
My grandfather, Gaetano Zimmardi (b. 1882 d.1971) married Vincenza Noto. Gaetano had two sisters, Grace and Pauline. Their parents were Santo Zimmardi and Maria Lombardo. Gaetano "jumped ship" and came to NY illegally around 1908. He came from Palermo, Sicily. As for the Autorino's, my grandmother, Adelaide (b. 1900), was the youngest child (and only one to be born in the U.S.) of Salvatore Autorino (b. abt. 1854) and Pauline DeLuca (Adelaide was a "change of life baby"). Adelaide's brothers and sisters were Francesco, Dora, Ralph, Carmella, Josephine, and Salvatore. Family says they came from Naples but I have found that "Naples" can mean any village in the general area of Naples. I would welcome any information on either of these families.
