Baccaro Family Genealogy Forum
My maiden name was Baccaro. 3rd generation Italian. Grandparents immigrated from Amelphi back around 1903 and settled in Rochester NY. My grandfather's name was Pascuali Baccaro(aka Patsy)and my grandmother's maiden name was Antoinette Ricigliano. My parents never learned to speak Italian and neither did I. I was born and raised in Houston Tx. My daughter, now 18, would like to go to Italy. She wants to know if we have any relatives still living there. I have no idea. How would I find out? It's sad that many Italians dropped their culture once they moved to America. My mother treats it (being Italian)like it's some kind of dirty secret. Maybe my daughter can find some relatives still in Italy and we can reclaim some of our heritage.
thanks for any help.
