Hi Dot,

You didn't mention whether you had already found the families in census records.

Because the name, SANFILIPPO, sounded familiar to me, out of curiousity I searched at www.familysearch.org for just the surname. And, I came up with 2 or 3 families in MA in the 1940 census. But, I think your family settled in Everett, MA. This is one record:

A different family settled in Quincy.

This is probably Josephine, also in Everett:

.. According to the 1940 census there were several PENNINO families in Belmont.

..
The reason the name sounded familiar is that I think there was a girl in my high-school class in Arlington with the last name, SANFILIPPO.
