Hello, well there surely is a connection, but I'm not sure what yet. As I mentioned, my GrandFather's name was Anthony. The information I have is that he had brothers, Andrew, Vincent, and Salvatore. Apparently their father's name was Michel, or Michelli (sp). I do see that Salvatore had a son named Michael, but don't have any further information. I know from what my father had told me that there were relatives in Canada, and in the UP. I also see a Frank listed as a son of Vincent, but I don't know who would be who.
There apparently was another 'Joria' who went back to Italy in the 20s. As I understand it, Rende is not that big a place, so there must be some connection. We have to keep digging.
