Thank you for the add to this group! I look forward to learning more about SPA and exchanging information about my family history.
I am actively researching the DellaCroce and Iasella history now. My grandparents, Domenico Pasquale DellaCroce (b. Apr 11,1884- d. June 19, 1961) and Concetta Lucia Iasella (b. Dec 8, 1887 - d. emigrated from SPA. Domenico came over a few times before going back to get Concetta to come to America in 1908 to make their permanent home. They were in Trinidad for a very short time, Bingham, UT with my Great Uncle, Guisseppe Nicolo (Joe, Sr. Iasella 1884-1968), in Denver, CO, and they finally settled in Colorado Springs, CO to raise their family (10 children, 2 died young) and live out their lives.
I have quite a bit of information about them, their siblings, and some data on their ancestors. I will add bits and pieces, as I learn more about the scope and needs of the group, to hopefully help others tie in missing information and/or add to their research. I am also hopeful that I may gain some knowledge from others about my SPA family.
Although actively researching all ancestors, I am seeking photos, direct connections, anecdotal information on:
Paternal Great Grandfather, Federico DellaCroce b. 5 JUL 1843
Maternal Great Grandfather, Michelangelo Vincenzo Iasella b. 21 NOV 1849
Maternal Great Aunt, Palmira Iasella 1891–1982
