Surnames: Paoletti, Di Brita
Leonardo and Carmella are my great-grandparents (though my user name says Marisa Paoletti Neumann, I'm actually her son). Unfortunately, I haven't had much luck with tracing my Italian family tree. Here's the little I know:
Leonardo was born April 27, 1885 and died January 16, 1932 to Giuseppe Paoletti and Incoronata _______.
Carmella was born August 5, 1888 and died Oct 19 1961to Giuseppe DiBrita and Maria Antonia _______.
Leonardo travelled to the US on numerous occasions, including 1901 with his brother Antonio, 1909, and 1936 with Guido.
Next time I visit Nonna Colomba (Lodovico's widow) I'll ask if she knows anything else.
