Hi Joe,
I am also searching for a Mele from Calabria, Italy. Here's what I have. His name was Pasquale Mele, born Ocotber 12, 1882. Died April 9, 1958. My mother in law,Santa Mele Scime, was his daughter. Now he moved here from Calabria, Italy via Ellis Island, ended up in Pittsfield, Ma. Married a woman for 12yrs, and abruptly left Ma. Ended up in Fredonia, NY. Married Carrie Dina. Had 6 children. I know all of them. If ya want that information. Now there still are some Mele's left in Pittsfield. I am in the process of contacting them. I would be more than happy to give you there addresses. Pasquale Mele also had cousins in NY, NY. I Have Joseph Sorrento as a cousins. I don't know if your great grandfather and my mother in laws father were related but I'll keep looking and let you know if I come up with anything. Please feel free to email me at
Thanks, Johnna Scime

Mele's are from Valsinni and Cantanzaro, but Valsinnin is a bigger city.
