I hope this will be helpful. My grandfather came here from the Naples area in the early 1900's via Ellis Island with his wife Candida. I know that there were family members left in Italy at the time, however I have no further info at this time. My grandfather's name was also Joseph Mele (Giuseppe Mele). He settled in Patterson N.J. area and had 9 daughters and one son, my father. My father Joseph M. Mele Married my mother Ileana Lauri. He speaks often of cousins that came from Italy when he was a young boy around the late 1920's or early 1930's. I hope this is a start.
