Surnames: Berardi, Paselli, Serra


I am descended from:

James Vincent Berardi--aka Vincenzo Berardi--Grandfather, b. 15 Dec 1909 in Des Moines, Iowa, d. 1987. He had 3 siblings (as far as I know):

Josephine Berardi (married Raymond Serra), b. 1912.
Peter Berardi (had a daughter Lucreatia), b. 1914, d. 1987.
Filomina Berardi, b. 1917, d. 1997.

Their parents were:

Dominic (Domenico) Berardi, b. 1876 in the area of Cosenza, Calabria, Italy.
Lucreatia (Lucrezia) Paselli, b. 1885 possibly in Calabria, Italy.

Dominic also possibly had a brother Tony (Antonio) Berardi (married a Francesca), b. 1883 in Italy who also came to Iowa.

It is believed that Dominic and Lucreatia went back to Italy after they had children here. I don't know much more than that. If anyone is related or has information, I'd love to hear from you.

Thank You,

Alexandra Berardi
