Hello, Sorry it took so long to respond. It is highly possible we could be connected somewhere...My grandfather Antonio Spera came over in 1906 on the Calabria (?) (if memory serves me correct)I am trying to do this from memory...the info is not in front of me. My grandfathers family came from Bellmonte Messagno. They settled in Philadelphia and Camden (right across the bridge from Philly in NJ). His sister and a lot of his relatives stayed behind. A lot of his other relatives came over. I am still searching for them. Unfortunately none of your other surnames are familiar. Some of mine include Chinnici, Romano, Martorano, Tocco, Grillo. I have gotten as far back as my Great great Grandfather who was Bennedito Spera who married ? Chinnici (I can't remember the name right now). Antonio was born in 1893, his father, Rossolino, around 1851 so Bennedito was born possibly in 1820's-1830's. I have just started focusing my research on the Spera line. If I turn something up I will let you know. Peace...Russell
