Looking for Marinella-Marciano in Avellino

Posted by Jim Marniella on September 13, 2005 at 05:22:20:

I am looking for my Marinelli relatives in Avellino. Our name was changed from Marinelli to Marniella here in the USA. My great grandparents were Gennaro & Virginia Marinelli. Virginia's maiden name was Marchiano. They came here in the early 1900's to Seneca Falls, New York. They were in Seneca Falls for just a few years. Then they moved to Cleveland, Ohio to raise their family. I live in Cleveland now. Does anyone have any information?
