  1. Hi Susan,
    My grandfather was named Joseph Lacirignola and lived in NYC. There is a good chance we are related. My father is John L. Lacirignola (resides in NJ).

  2. I am sorry I missed your comment on my mother’s photo. My grandfather was Vito Lacirignola born around 1879 in Fasano, Bari, Italy. He came to NYC in 1907. I was not aware of any siblings of his who came to the United States, but we recently found a sister of his named Isabella who came in 1911. So there may be more. I would love to hear if you know anything else.
