I've learned from my family that we are also from Bari. I did a little checking online and there is a street named Bavaro in Bari - interesting huh? From what I've learned, and I'm still gathering more info - my great grandfather came here with his brothers, there were at least 7 of them. They split up into different parts of the country. Which explains why we have lots of family in California.
I'll keep posting as I learn more!
