Thank you for your response. Ancestory.com emailed me and I no longer subscribe to them...got your message 6 years after posting a response to my 2nd cousin Leonard Daloia.
Please forward your response to Lenny Daloia who resides in Washington, Penna. His email address is on the message board, too. I talked to Lenny him last year...he still lives in our hometown of Washington, Penna. -- near Pittsburgh, PA.
I agree "Daloia or D'Aloia" is a common name in our grandmother's hometown of Bovino, Italy. My cousin Gary traveled there Dec. 06 and discovered the name is common. My grandmother's maiden name was Vincenza D'Aloia and her father was James D'Aloia. All I know is that her mother's maiden name was Masciello.
It is nice to know there are many Daloia's in Massachusetts. Too bad I didn't know that when I traveled to Boston & Natick, MA September 07, when my job at a military base sent me to train personnel on a database.
What is your name?
Do you know what village in Italy your family is from? That helps determine if we are related -- even distantly could be possible.
My mother was child #7 of Grandma D'Aloia Chicone's 10 children. Mom died last year at 80 yrs. old.
Below is an email address to write to in Bovino (Provincia d'Foggia -- Puglia Region, Italy). Write the letter in Italian, they do not speak English)...to the Vital Statistics in Bovino. You need to know birthdates or at least the year of your grandparents birth.www.@Bovino.com
Do a Google search to get your letter translated from English to Italian and email them the Italian version.
Hope this helps. Keep in touch.
