: Pasquale: I just read your message and would like to communicate with you. My email addresses are: rocolaizzi- AT - aol.com or rocolaizzi- AT - home.com. Feel free to write. I am looking for information about both the Buttino and Dellapenta names and cannot seem to go further back than my grandmother's parents names. These are on my father's side of the family. Also to further complicate things, when my mother's father, Rafael Olivieri, arrived in the US, he went to stay with his uncle Antonio DellaPenta near Endicott. I suspect from this information found on the Ellis Island website, that my mother's family and father's family were related somehow as they were all from Compochairo. I knew a Tony Cordeleone in Endicott. He used to own a neighborhood bar called Mike and Louie's and is in his 70's now. Please write to me. Thank you. Rosemary Fusco Colaizzi
