"That was my first guess.. you should get the photo dvds today or tomorrow.. I posted them today on G+ and can add you as a friend and you can see them there as well.. but the dvd photos should blow up very well for facial details."

Francesco married twice. His first wife in Italy Giovanna Borea 1850-1870 died. Francesco had
two brothers Luigi [Costello's father] and Antonio and Guiseppe. After his first wife died Francesco[1846-1902]
married Marianna Iuele [1857-1943] and they had Luigi Castiglia [1890-1955], Domenico Castiglia[1880-1957],
Concetta Castiglia[not Costello's sister][1887-1983]. I grew up in the same home as Marianna, Domenico,and
Concetta in Westport Connecticut where the NYC Castiglia-Costello- Aloise family visited. I was young
and only saw Costello once at a funeral in NYC but I am not sure whose funeral it was.
I have on Ancestry.com a private family tree INCLUDING Castiglia-Costello family, I can invite you and Dana as a guest to look at and I believe this will make it more clear. Some of the original documents from Italy are also on this site.
I hope the above give you a better perspective of the relationship.. I believe
Great Grandfather Francesco would have been Frank Costello's Uncle.
