Hello Anthony
I have been researching my Bacarro family ancestry for a while. I have just been reading the Bacarro family message page and noticed that you were from the Philadelphia area.
My Baccaro family lived and some still live in Bridgeport, Montgomery Co., PA. Although there are no male descendants with the Baccaro name. There were 7 girls and 1 boy in the family but the son died before marrying. The last of my mothers generation passed away in Feb. of this year.
I lived in Philadelphia till 12 years ago when I relocated to Pike Co., PA
My grandfather Carlo came to America with his wife in 1902 from Roccamandolfi where they apparently both lived and were married. Carlo had been to America earlier (1892)and returned home to get married.
My grandfather Carlo also had two brothers, Michael and Alfonso that came to America. one settled in Norristown and the other in the Newark, NJ area. There was also a sister that stayed in Italy. My grandfather married Christina DeFilippis. He apparenly served in the Italian Army, Calvary, for 13 years before coming to America.
I was wondering if we might be related. Are you from the Norristown area? I would be most happy to share data with you.
