My grandfather was Odoarde DeParasis. He emmigrated from Collepardo to the U.S. with his Aunt Angeline Cristini in 1913. He brought his bride, Maria Poretta to the U.S. in 1920 to unite with her family. She had been raised by her maternal grandmother, Rosa Cifarelli in Collepardo. I would like to learn more about this family. If there is anyone out there researching these families or knows of someone that I can contact, please let me know. Since I do not speak Italian it is difficult for me to communicate with the church in Collepardo and I could use some help.
