Looking for any information on the name ARCARO. My grandfather was Antonio Arcaro and he emigrated from Campobasso, Italy between 1917 and 1920. (unsure exact year) He stayed with relatives in Ohio somewhere I believe, or at least lived in Ohio for a time. He married my grandmother whose name was Grace CAPPA. She died in 1959 in Syracuse, NY. He died in 1987 in Syracuse, NY. I know he had several brothers who lived in Canada and one sister who lived in Italy. I also know that while he was young his father worked in America and went back to Italy every few years. (don't know his name.) Any information will help me even if there is no connection to my Arcaro's. Thank you in advance.

Hello Lisa.

I have some info on the Arcaro Family. There are many many Arcaro's in Italy and in Montreal Canada. The Arcaro's came from a village that was once called S. Angelo in Grotte which today is known as S. Maria Del Molise. S. Maria del Molise was once part of Campobasso but in 1958 it became part of Isernia. I know many Arcaro's and I'm even related to some. If you need more info please feel free to contact me. I'm currently reseaching my family tree. Since our families are from the same village we can help each other out. Who know's we may be related.

Hi, I just picked up your message. Are you talking about John Arcaro Sr. from Conneaut, Ohio? My grandfather died when I was three which would make the year of his death 1969. If so, my dad is John Arcaro Jr. who still lives in Conneaut. I can surely get some information from him for your search. P.S. Who is you wife? May be a relation.

Hello Lisa:

My father's name was also Anthony Arcaro. I am not sure what part of Italy he brought up in, but was some where in Abruzzi. But his parents came over to America, and my father was born while they were here living in Conneaut Ohio. When he was 5 yrs old they went back to Italy and he returned to USA when he was 17, and married my Mom and lived out his life in New York City. He died in 1982 at 66 years old. He had a cousin in Conneaut Ohio named Fiori (First name), And his wife's name was Marie. His sister came over to America when I was a little girl with her family and settled in Pittsburgh, PA. He too, had many relatives in Montreal, But I never got to know them.

I think we could be related somehow too, since my father had relatives in Conneaut Ohio. His name was Anthony J. Arcaro. His parents migrated to America and he was born in Conneaut Ohio but they went back to Abruzzi, when he was five. He returned to America and lived in New York City until he died. His sister came over when I was a child and settled in Pittsburg PA. My father's mother's name was Domenica, and his father's name was John. I don't remember his sister's name, but it may have been Gilda.

Hi, hope you receive this message. We are Arcaro's living in Western Australia. I should be able to contribute some information and would certainly love to receive information re Arcaro's. My husband was born in Santa Maria del Molisse (Donato Giovanni (john) Arcaro - parents Addolorato and Elisa Arcaro)
We visited his place of birth in 1986 and again last year and met many relatives.
