My parents Ercole Vetere (1900) and Maddalena Vaccaro (1899) were born in San Martino di Finita , Cosenza , Calabria. Their ancestors left Albania during a migration several hundred years ago settled in Italy. There are many villages in Calabria with ethnic Albanian populations. My parents settled in Long Island then in Brooklyn, NY. One of my father's brothers , Frank, also lived in LI. My father's other brothers migrated from Italy to Argentina when the quota to the states was cut off for southern Europeans. My cousins from Argentina have since migrated to the U.S. in the 1960s.
