My father, Francesco (Frank) Valinoti, was born in Moliterno, Italy on October 2, 1894. In 1911 he immigrated to the United States (sponsored by his uncle Vincenzo Valinoti of Brooklyn, NY). He left behind in Italy his father Antonio Valinoti, his stepmother Rachelle Petrocelli, and 4 stepbrothers (Giuseppe, Nicola, Rocco and Vincenzo). My father died on March 30, 1961.
A few years ago, I was able to obtain a surname booklet of most of the Valinotis living all over the world. There were twelve individuals listed in Moliterno. I have been in touch with two of them. I also have visited Moliterno and their cemetery, finding the graves of my grandfather and uncles. I could e-mail you with additional information if I could get your e-mail addres. If your e-mail is not available, you can phone me at 908-665-1045.
