Wow! What a surprise to see your email. My original post was from nine years ago. Thank you so much for responding. Our family knows very little about our grandfather Michael Riccardi. We know that he came from Matera Italy, and that he lived in New Rochelle. He did not speak about his family in Italy, why he came to the US, or any other family history. My grandfather died October 5 1973. I would love to know more about his siblings, his parents, etc. Has anyone else in the family immigrated to the US? Six years years ago my husband and I went to the Amalfi coast and from there drove to Matera for a day. It would have been nice to perhaps seen where my grandfather lived or even if we still have any relatives living there.
If you have the chance I would love to hear back from you. My personal email is firstname.lastname@example.org
