hello - my grandmother was Rose Minella who married Joe Florimonte in 1921- Joe's dad was Michele - Rose's parents were Angelo Minella Louise Cherva

I'm from the Ohio clan of Florimonte's -
I'm trying to do a family tree - and would like some help.

We just had a family X-mas party and I'm pretty sure there were some Carota's there too.

Hi Jeff, I hope you have more info than I do,I can not find Carota anywhere. The few things I do have did not list Angelo. The ONLY thing I have is: Antonia Minella to Augustino Carota Antonia born 1-17-1884 death 4-6-58 left Italy around 1911 from Felitto.Her mother-in-law Rosa Rota. her brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law Elena(Helen) Giuseppe Pasqule,Agostino(her husband)Rosa Passarella and Maria. I have nothing on her side. All I know is she supposedly came from Northern Italy down to Felitto and her maiden name was Minella she had a sister named Rosa and thtis all I have. Sorry I can't help you,if you have any better info. please let me know.You can reach me at Thanks, Nancy

There were Carota's at the Christmas Party, usually are. What was our Cousin Reek Carota's real first name, Ricco? Anyway, for anyone who doesn't know, I am Jeff's cousin Paul(we've known each other all our lives as our family/clan is tight); my mom, Annamaria Florimonte(Annamarie is what she is called- and yes Annamaria is one word.) is Jeff's Dad's (Angelo) baby sister. Way to go on the family tree project Jeff.

Hi, Nancy. Read your message for Carol. The Carotas I know are in/from Cincinnati, OH. Antonia Minella was my great-grandmother, married to Augusto. I know Uncle Henry was the eldest of 5(?) brothers (Rick, Anthony [my grandfather] - can't remember the others) and 2(?) sisters (Aunt Helen [daughter is Toni Anne] and Aunt Anne). All of the brothers served in WWII and all came back alive. Uncle Henry was married to Aunt Ruby (they adopted Ruby Lynn). Let's chat.

Not the twins. I come from the interesting side of the family - I'll tell you all about it. My e-mail address is I live in L.A. and there's another Carota who got in touch with me here although their side of the family came from Ofena, east of Italy, Abruzzi region. Ever heard of them?

Hey, I knew Reek & Mish, they are my dad's cousins (Angelo Florimonte) . Nu Nu - (Helen) still comes over to my dad & aunt's house (Helen Cercio, Babe Odenbach)

I am working on the family tree, I'd like to see whatever you might have.

I live in Harrison Oh - my dad still lives at the same house in Price Hill (35 years)

I have Donato Ciriaco Passarelli who married Elena Greco; their daughter was Rosina, born in 1913. Elena was a half-sister to my husband's father, Francesco Greco. Elena's parents were Gaetano Greco and Luigia Palmieri. Francesco's parents were Gaetano Greco and Angela Ventre. Does any of this connect?
