I'm not sure if we are talking about the same Joe Galasso, but my fathers' uncle was Joe Galasso and he lived in Brooklyn,NY Most likely he would be deceased by now and if he had any children they would be senior citizens by now.

Hi Joe,

My name is Pete Galasso and I live on Long Island. My father's name was also Peter. He had a brother Joseph (my Uncle Joey) who did live in Florida for a time and was the youngest of four brothers and two sisters. Joey Galasso had a wild and troubled life, but he was in fact a baker as well as a pretty good amateur musician (he played drums and I have a photo of him playing mandolin. I understand he passed away in upstate New York in the late eighties, I believe.

If this sounds like your dad drop me a line. We could be cousins!
Best,
Pete

This information is about my grandmother..

She was born in Avellino, Italy in 1928.
Her maiden name was Galasso.

My dad's sister sent me an email and apparently there were five children altogether.
The eldest and youngest died as babies from illnesses.
The second child was Anna (who ended up living in Marseilles, France), then Giuseppe,(who lived in Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire), then my grandmother Angela.

My aunt tells me my grandmother's mother's name was Chiara and her husband died of a brain haemorrhage when my grandmother was about 3 or 4 so she didn't know much about him except that her mother was his second wife and that her father had been in America for business so I am unsure if he had any other children.

My grandma Angela eventually moved up to Turin to open up a boutique. She was a tailoress and her brother a tailor.

My aunt tells me Giuseppe married a woman named Lucia and they had 2 children.

My Grandfather, John Galasso, born in Avellino Italy, came to America in the early 1900's by himself, I have no clue as to the rest of his family in Avellino, we may all be related. He resided in Elmsford NY, and was a stonemason.
