Arriving in 1885, I believe Vincenzo was our founding family member here in the states. His wife would join him in 1887 and together they had 12 children, 6 lived through to adulthood with 1 unknown. Starting out in Pennsylvania, they made their way to Delaware settling in Johnston, Rhode Island by 1900 where Vincenzo was working as a farmer.

In Memory of Nicoletta Civitano

As 2019 was approaching, I  spent some time thinking about the direction I wanted to go with my family research. After some thought, one of the things I would like to do is highlight as many family members as I can with a memorial mention on the anniversary of their passing. My first post turns out to be for my beautiful Aunt Coletta.
