I am looking for any information on my grandfather's family. My grandfather is Vito Antonio Bianculli (Sr.). He was 17 when he sailed from Napoli on March 15, 1905 and apparently traveled with a gentleman named Giuseppe Caputi. My grandfather had a younger brother named Antonio who sailed from Napoli on April 21, 1909 also at the age of 17. Antonio says his father's first name is Giuseppe and that at that time, he lived in Leparace. Notations on the Ellis Island records say that both were coming to live with relatives Uncle Antonio Pricolo (and Aunt Philomene Pricolo, I believe from census records). We may be related to Pricolo family somehow, maybe on my Great Grandmother Bianculli's side, but I have no records. Looks also like Giuseppe Caputi was related to the Pricolo's by marriage somehow. FYI My grandfather Vito Antonio Bianculli (Sr.) married Lillian Caren here in Calfornia, they had two sons Joseph Edward and Vito Antonio, Jr. All are now deceased, but Joseph and Vito's children are all living. Vito's 3 children are all in California...in Merced and Stanislaus Co. Joe had 3 as well. I believe 2 are in California and one lives in Arizona.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
