Campanella looking for help with family origins.

Hopefully you can help me...
My history has always been iffy for many reasons. Possibly someone can help me. I am Jeran Campanella. I am 32 and live in Salinas, Ca. My Dad is Frank Campanella (1949- ) and he has two sisters Ginny and Trish. His father Charles Joseph Campanella(1918/1920-1996) was born in Trenton NJ. Here is where it gets weird. My grandfather would never talk of his family. He said his mother died when he was 3, and his father, Joseph had left him with his aunt and uncle when he was 5 so he has no memory of them. My Dad asked a few years before his death, some questions about Italy as his grandfather (Joseph) had come over around 1909 or 1910. My grandfather told my Dad that our last name was Campanelli and it had to be changed. He gave no further details and even said that he didn't remember his aunt and uncles names because he ran away or moved west when he was very young (12ish). So, my genealogy stops. CAN ANYONE HELP?
