Our Boston Family since early 1920's

I saw no Boston Pirainos on your registry and wish to enter the following: My grandfather Paolo and grandmother, Giovanna (nee LaMacchia) Piraino family moved from their large clan in Syracuse, NY to Boston's North End in the early 1920's, to successfully skipper his suddenly-deceased wife's brother's fishing boat. He and his crew died at sea about 18 years later. There were 10 in this Piraino family, but one died as an infant, leaving nine to grow and prosper, all raising their own families. Sadly, the youngest, born 1927, Joseph, died this past week. There is one remaining sibling. Grandfather Paolo immigrated from Messina with his parents in the late 1880's, I believe.
