      Evening Kathy,

      No...I only wish.  I was born in Providence, RI.  My grandparents, Giuseppe Fornaro and Rachele Cannella arrived in RI from Itri in1893. 

      My Grandparents must have been about the only family from Itri that DIDN'T settle in the Knightsville section of Cranston, RI.  For reasons I'll never know, they chose the Italian section of Providence known as Federal Hill to live, work and raise their family as did my Grnadfather's brother Bennedetto who came over several years later.

      I often wonder who of the families that settled in Knightsville might be close relations to me.  With the gap in the records that the LDS was allowed to film, from 1865 forward, I've not been able to find siblings or other family of either of my grandparents beyond Uncle Benny.

      Thank you, Linda.
      I feel like I've found the right group!  Joseph Agresti is really the star here.  Most of the surnames you have listed, he knows.  Especially, de Luca (his maternal grandmother' s name) & Soprano.
      Were you born in Itri?
