Hi. My name is Tom Costanza. I'm 55 living in San Jose California. I believe I may be related to some of your relatives. My great-Aunt is Giuseppa DiStefano. She was born in Cefala' Diana December 15, 1898 (died in San Jose in August 1991). Her parents were Giuseppe DiStefano and Vincenza Costanza. She immigrated to the U.S. on the ship SS Calabria from Palermo on Sept 13 1907 arriving at New York Sept 29 1907. She traveled with her mother Vincenza DiStephano and siblings Francesca, Giovanni & Antonino (I have a copy of the manifest from the Ellis Island website). I understand her father had come over earlier. They settled in Chicago. She married my great-uncle Natale Melia and re-located to San Jose. If this looks like a part of your family, please let me know. I may have some good documents I can send you copies of...her passport, etc.
Thanks, Tom Costanza
