Renna family of Mercogliano
Trying to find what village my husband's grandfather came from. His name was Angelo Renna, brothers Joseph and Alfred and a sister Elisabeth. Angelo Renna was born around 1908 and emigrated to the US (NJ) as an adolescent. Don't know the year.
Just curious to see if there are any relatives left and what village.
Thank you, Louann
