Hello: My grandparents who moved to the United States in the early 1900s are from Colonnella. My Grandfather was Alfonzo Ciapanna and my Grandmother was Grace DiBatista. My Grandfather, Alphonso Ciapanna arrived in the US on March 15, 1910 on a ship called "Roma" which departed from Naples. He was 14 at the time, so his year of birth must have been 1896 or right around that year. He mentions as contact in Italy his mother Domenica, he is joining his father Domenico.
I am unable to find my Grandmother Grace DiBatista on the Ellis Island web site. I seem to recall that my mother told me she was on the same ship as my Grandfather, but her name doesn't appear on the manifest.
My Grandfather had a brother, Guerino Ciapanna who arrived in the US on September 9, 1920 when he was 18 years old. So his year of birth must have been around 1902. He arrived on a ship called "Mexico" which departed from Havre, France. I don't know how he came to be in France.
I was wondering how I can find out if I have any relatives who still live in Italy. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
