There seems to be some confusion between two different lines of Paolini’s.
Frank &Regina and then Franasesco & Virginia. Ermengildo was my grandfather who was married to Helen (denning). They had Frank and Vincent (twins), mary, Edith (my mother) then Gerald and Jerry. They both seems to arrive in New York just years apart and shares many similarities including some children names. Franseco and Virgina also had a son named Ermenegildo (my grandfather spelled his Ermengildo) and they both each had another daughter named Lena, but the rest of the children seem to be different. In reading some of your past emails you seem to be indicating that Fransesco and virginia (your great grandmothers sister had the same children)? I can tell you this about my grandfather Ermengildo. After grandpa got married they live with his parents for several years and even had their first 3 children there. Grandma (Helen) was not happy about the situation as she grew had grown up in an orphanage since she was a baby and wanted very badly to be in her own house. I spent many day talking to her before she passed away getting her to reminisce about her past until she was tired of talking to me. Unless there was some sort of name changes or children from previous mates. It does not seem that Fansesco and Virgina are related to Ermengildo and Helen? Maybe you have new information and we can correspond? There sure seems to be a few strange similarities here though. I can find a passage for virgina grassi in 1915, but could not find one for Frank and Regina ( supposedly 1911 for him and 1913 for her). Although the 1930 censes is pretty specific about the "Frank and Regina" household. Ermengildo was born in Italy but the rest of his sibling where born in New York. Maybe we are still related? Hope to hear from you.
