The Colaianni branch settled in Pittsburg and worked for the railroad except for my grandfather who came ot CHicago. My grandmother was a Frazzini from SPA. Her brother, myUncle Fred was a Frazzini in Chicago. He had three sons (one set of twins and a first born son, also Fred). These cousins still live in CHicago.Arthur "Ron" Colaianni_____________________________________________________________________

Hi, my name is Raymon O Frazzini,I would be glad to be a member of SPA, my grandfather Roger Frazzini came to America back in 1902 he got a job on the railroad, one year later he brought his wife to America her name was Virginia D'tana Frazzini, they had 12 children together, my father was Orlando R Frazzini, he was a P O W from WW2. he also worked gor the railroad for 45yr's. I always wonder what it would have been like for my grandparents to come from San Pietro Avellana, I often wonder what things would be like if they would have stayed in Italy. Thank You!
