Hi, I am looking for Lanza, My Grandmother's mother's maiden name, from Bovino Italy. My grandmother was Antonette (first name on birth certificate Mariantonia) Botticelli, born Oct. 7, 1898. Had 2 brothers that I know of, Giovanni born March 1896; and Louis or Luigi, date unknown, who stayed in italy.
Their father was Nicola Botticelli, Mother Filomena Lanza (married 1886). I think Nicola's dad was Lorenzo, but want more info on Filomena. I would like to hear from anyone with info on the Lanza/Botticelli line in Bovino, and also from relatives in US: I believe we had Botticelli cousins in NYC, and LI, but don't know much about the Lanza line, and would like to make that connection.
(Antonette and Giovanni both immigrated to Springdale, Stamford CT. My Grandmother Antonette Botticelli married Michele deAngelis in italy in Sept. 1920. he was also from Bovino, but naturalized in 1918..)
