I believe that you already got an email or 2 from my uncle, Louis A Rigali. My father's name was John Peter Rigali. My grandfather, Emilio A Rigali was born in Fornaci De Barga and came over to Holyoke, MA with his father, Louis Anthony Rigali. My grandfather had 2 sisters, Suzie and Mary Jane (who died just last year), both of whom moved to Holyoke and then one to Northampton. Suzie married a Luchini. I was struck by the number of people that answered your email that have the same first names as many of my relatives (e.g. Mary Jane, Peter, John, Suzie)I have 3 sisters and one half-sister. We all still live in various parts of Massachusetts. Rigali is a very rare name and one that I am proud of, so much so that I kept my name after my marriage. Where do you live?

Kind regards,
-Donna
