I think we might be cousins. My grandfather, Leonard Aquilino had relatives that came over with him. What was your father & mother's names? Did you have any relatives in South Philly?

My Grandfather's name was Michael, my father's name is Joseph James...Grand and Father came from Boonton, N. I don't know of
any relatives in Philly...but you never know.
I will ask my Father.....How many Aquilino's come from Foggia? You maybe correct, we maybe related.

Hi, I'm Kimberley (Kim) Hannaman Taylor from Virginia originally. I knew a Michele Aquilino from Annandale Springfield Country Day School in the 1970s. We were best friends as kids and I've been watching Classmates etc to see if she turns up so I could say hello and see what she and her family have been up to, but so far no luck. You have her exact spelling, so I thought I'd give it a shot.
If it's not you...sorry for bugging you but it can't hurt to try! If this is you, you may reply to my email at:
