      INteresting - we had a Paparello married into the family back in 1784! That was also in Itri - be happy to see if we can find a connection on the Agresti branch! We will have to work on names and dates to see - do you have a tree on Heritage or Ancestry?

I've been doing some research on my Great-Great-Grandmother Giovanina DeSimone who was born in Itri and lived most of her life in Erie, PA. When I try to search posts for mentions of "DeSimone" I get no results, even though I can clearly see that the most recent post was from someone names DeSimone. What am I doing wrong? Also, is there a way to look at the posts I've made to this group in the past? I tried clicking on my username, but it just took me to some pseudo-facebook page. Grr.
