My grandfather was born in a small town of Chieuti,
province of Foggia, Italy. Although he spoke
Italian, he also conversed in the Albanian language.
Most of his ancestors dating back to the 12th century
who called themselves "ABERESH" originally came from
Albania. He came to America in 1910 and migrated to
Pittston, Penn. where he found work in the coal mines.
To this date there are still some Daloias or Dalees or
Deleos living in Pittston. If anyone has anything
to add, please contact me.
