My name is Nicole Massaro and I'm searching for any American relatives I may have.
I live in Australia and have always been curious as to how many Massaro's ventured to different countries after leaving Italy.
My grandfather's name is Angelo Donato Massaro, born in San Marco in Lamis, Foggia, in 1916 and was son to Nicola and Arcangela Massaro. Don't know much else, other than he had a brother - Antonio who also came out to Australia to live. My grandfather married Maria Soccio, also from San Marco, Foggia and migrated to Australia in the early 1950's. They gave birth to 3 children - Arcangela, Teresa (born in San Marco) and Nicola (my Dad - born in Australia).
I have a cousin, Peter Massaro, who lives in New Jersey, USA. His father and my grandfather were first cousins. That's as far as I know my American connection extends!
My Dad married my Mum, Luisa Villani (also from a family born in San Marco, Foggia), in Australia in 1976 and have 2 children - me (born in August 1980) and my brother Paul (born in May 1984).
If there is anyone out there who may be related to me (or even if you aren't and just want to say hi!!), drop me a line - I would love to hear from you.
