JERRY:
I AM OF ITALIAN DESCENT, MY GRANDPARENTS CAME
FROM COMPABASSO AND CASACALENDA ITALY. THEY SETTLED IN FALL RIVER,MA. YOU MAY FIND INFORMATION YOUR LOOKING FOR IN THAT AREA. THERE WERE MANY PEOPLE OF PORTUGESE DESCENT FROM THE AZORE's IN THAT AREA. THERE WERE MANY TEXTILE MILLS AND A GREAT DEAL OF COMMERCIAL FISHING IN THAT AREA, ESPECIALLY IN THE NEW BEDFORD,MA AREA. THESE CITIES WERE
CLOSE TO EACH OTHER.
