I believe I am a distant relative based on the family research I have been doing. I am hoping finding the exact connection may help me track down more of my family in Lauropoli. My great-grandfather Antonio Mancuso came over in about 1895 with his siblings, they are all from Lauropoli. His parents are Pasquale Mancuso and Marie Milano. I have been unable to get any more info on their siblings or parents, many of whom never came to the US.

One of Antonio's brothers is the Tammany Hall Judge Francis X Mancuso who was very close friends with Frank Costello. In researching the judge I found several places in the news and court docs that state their relationship as being "blood relatives" and in one that their "first cousins had married" as well as that their "people come from the same town of Lauropoli".

So, if you have any knowledge of family in Lauropoli that married a Mancuso, let me know!

from Lisa,

My Uncle was Frank Rizzo of Lauropoli.  I wrote several comments about my trips to that town with my late husband.  My niece passed along this website to me.

I am not a geneologist nor am I a journalist.  Just the niece of Frank Rizzo.

I am sorry to hear of the high cost site fees.  Are you located in the USA or Lauropoli?

Frank Castiglia-Costello's sister, May was my grandfather, Louis Gilberti's mother.  My grandfather and grandmother, along with my father and aunt, as well as my grandfather's brothers and families, moved from New York in the 30's, following the slot machine business to New Orleans, LA.
