My name is Nancy D'Ambra Schiano
My husband and I are taking a trip to Italy and the last two days of my trip will be spent in Ischia, October 3,& October 4,2003.
My grandfather , Antonio D"Ambra and my grandmother ,Maria Christina Impaglazzio D'Ambra came to America with three young children, Stanley, Annunciata and Frank. My grandfathers brother, Phillipe D'Ambra also came to America from Ischia, he was a sea captain and went back and forth from Italy to America many times during his lifetime.
Philippe D'Ambra returned to Ischia in the late 40's and never returned to America. We know he had a family in Italy.
My grandfather spoke many times to me of his life as a young boy in Ischia, fishing for a living.
I would very much like to make contact with some of my relatives that may still be in Ischia.
I know he had a sister Angelina, another sister Loretta, a brother Carmino and his younger brother Vincenzo D'Ambra.
They all came to America and settled in Rhode Island.
My grandfather spoke many times to us of his land that he had left behind. He traveled many times back to Ischia to visit his father and his relatives.
If anyone can help me in my search, I would very much appreciate it.
