I was given new information from an aunt who recalled that my Cardinale line came from Italy, supposedly Sicily, to Jamestown, New York. From Jamestown they then moved to Chicago at the turn of the century, where Frank Cardinal(e)(i) married Giuseppina Fiorella. They had 6 children, Louis (11/10/1901), Grace (1924-1968), Rosolino, Pauline, Conchetta (11/1/1910-4/5/78) and Lucille. I am the great-granddaughter of Louis. If anyone has any information, please email me, I am trying to pin down the roots of the Cardinales, which as you all know is very difficult! Also, if anyone has information on the last name Velardo, also from Sicily, please let me know.
