RICCHIO Family - Calabria,Tetizan, Italy

I know this may seem redundant, but I am also looking for connecting lines of family. My spelling is 'RICCHIO' There has never been a change in the spelling from Italy to Ellis Island to here-Racine, WI. I have as far back as my Great-Great-Great Grandfather Luigi Ricchioalthough, all we know about him so far is that he was born in Italy. Next we have his children: Ralph (my line), Alesandro,Giovani and Giocchino. All boys. Ralph was married twice - his first wife was Fortuna Presta,they had 3 children:Bruno, Anthony and Josephine. Fortuna passed away and he remarried to Aquila Tenuta who bore him 8 children: Serafino, Alesandro, Angelo, Giocchino, Maria, Rachella and a set of twins, namely:Francesco and Gabrielle. (Francesco is my line)Francesco (Frank) was my Great Grandfather. He had ten children:
1.Oscarino Filberto Arturo Ricchio
2.Linda Isabella Ricchio
3.Tristano Anthony Ricchio
4.Rinaldo Ricchio (stillborn)
5.Asunta Laura Ricchio
6.Etero George Ricchio
7.Mario Augustino Ricchio
8.Alesandro Oscarino Ricchio
9.Francis Theodore Ricchio
10.Rose Ersilia Ricchio
Alesandro Oscarino is my Grandfather. He has always gone by the name of Almondo Ricchio. Just recently I found the Naturalization papers to show that his actual given name is as stated in number 8 above. He didn't like that very much! Old world Italians-what to do!!! haha
Anyway, I can find no other documentation as far as famliy. I do know that some went to Chicago (we know what that means!) some stayed here in Racine, and some migrated to California. It sure would be nice to hear from someone who is related. I hope the information I gave above is helpful to someone. Oh I forgot dates:Francesco was born September 27th,1876. and died January 8th,1955. I have more if need, but only of Francesco forward. I wish I had Ralph and Luigi's!
Happy Hunting,
