Yes, we are related. My mother said that her grandmother (my great grandmother) Gaetana Lumia (married Rosario Baiera) is your grandfather's sister. It's a little complicated but, Gaetana Lumia and Rosario Baiera was my grandfather's parents. His wife, Carmela Marranca's parents were Angelina Capitano and Salvatore Marranca. Capitano and Lumia are related, therefore, my grandparents were second cousins. My grandmother's mother (capitano) was my grandfather's mother's (Lumia) niece (or cousin, I'm not sure). Lumia and Baiera had six children: Lena, Carrie, Carmelita, Joseph and Vincent (My grandfather) and Rose. They are all deceased. My grandmother's family had 10 children: Carmel, Sam, Minnie (Philomena), Dolly (Josephine), Kay, Grace, Mary, Rose, Angie and my grandmother Millie (Carmela). Only two are now living and residing in Pittston. My grandmother and grandfather were born in Pittston and moved to New York. I would love for you to e mail the picture of your grandfather Santo, my mother would love to see it. My e mail is: Thanks for replying cousin!
