Caprio family from Montemilone

Posted by Valerie on 07/21/03 at 6:33 PM

I am searching for any relatives of my grandfather, Donato Caprio (born in 1880's). His parents were Vito Nicolo Caprio and Marianna Suriana of Montemilone. After Vito's death, Marianna remarried into the Falanga family and no contact remained with the Caprio family. Donato grew up with step-family of Falanga and after he married, he moved to Brooklyn, NY in the 1920's.

We are always surprised to see the name Caprio anywhere and constantly wonder if somehow we are related. So glad to have found this board in the hopes of meeting family.

Thank you.
