Connie, My name is Joanne Castaldi Navarro. My grandparents were from Forio Ischia Italy. Giovanni Giuseppe Castaldi came to usa in 1881 and later wrote to family in Ischia for a bride. Luigi D'Ambra b.1846 in Lipari, Messina, Sicily, Italy and his son Micheleangelo b.1882 brought Maria b.1880 to usa on 28 May 1896 to be wed on 14 Sep 1896 in Phila. PA. I have been able to find a lot of Castaldi ancestors back to 1700's in Forio by the site: I joined. I can not find info on my grandmother and her siblings in Ischia - maybe they were born in Sicily like their parents. There was a younger D'Ambra sister Francesca b.1884 in Forio, Ischia. Micheleangelo stayed in Phila, PA because his father Luigi came back to usa on 25 Jan 1904 to visit his son & his wife at 523 Christian St. I still can not find the name of Luigi D'Ambra's wife and maiden name. The only census is the 1900 they are in and the name is spelled Domber and the mother is Moore, I was guessing Maria like the daughter. When Maria's younger sister came to usa in 1897 when Maria D'ambra Castaldi had her first baby and it was stillborn, the name above daughter - Francesca D'Ambra's was Leonarda Iacona and was born in 1857. I hope to go to Ischia for a visit someday. I have 2 cousins that have been there and say it is beautiful.
