Signor DiCiero, ho visto il messaggio riguardante il mio cognome, e siccome sto cercando le tracce della mia famiglia, posso metterla al corrente di quanto ho saputo finora, anche se purtroppo non ho notizie riguardanti il suo cognome. Pirella è un cognome poco diffuso,forse di discendenza spagnola. Ne ho trovato tracce nello stato di New York alla fine del 1700, con emigranti provenienti dalla Sicilia e altri non specificati. Due Pirella hanno partecipato alla corsa all'oro in Alaska nell'800. Attualmente siamo in Lombardia (ma è storia di queste due ultime generazioni), in Liguria, in Corsica, in Sardegna, in Calabria. Io faccio parte del ramo calabrese della famiglia, con un nonno che partì a sua volta per New York all'inizio del '900, ma ritornò presto indietro, e uno zio morto sul fronte greco-albanese durante la II guerra. Ho avuto notizia anche di una famiglia Pirella (ma non ricordo con precisione) se a Cipro o a Malta. Mi faccia sapere in quale modo posso esserle utile, precisando che ramo dei Pirella sta cercando. Buona giornata.

I received your message and am very excited to hear from you. Unfortunately, I do not have a good knowledge of the Italian language. I will bring your message to my neighbor Natale DiMolfetti and will receive his help. To save time, please contact me directly at RJCherry@aol.com
My Italian name is Raffaele DiCiero. In English it became Ralph Cherry. I was born in Pennsylvania and I moved to the Los Angeles area in 1961. Please write again. I want to keep in touch with each and everyone who may be a relative. Gracia.

Tkhanks, Darlene Shannon for your reply to my message. My fathers name was Raffaele DiCiero and my mothers name was Carmina Spina. I am in the Los Angeles area but I was born in St.Clair, PA in the Coal region. My family used to spend every Chrismas eve with a family in St.Clair, Charles Malatesta. Wife name was Christina. It was told to me that Mr.Malatesta first wife was the sister of Christina. After the sister died, he married Christina. The family was reasonably well off financially, at that time. There was a child from the first marriage...Tony Malatesta, who married Mary DeDeo, from the Bronx. Theresa, Michael and Mary Malaesta were born to Christina Malatesta. I can give you some more info on these people if you desire. I believe the family originally came from Bojano, also spelled Boiano, Campobasso (Molise), Italy. If any of this connects, please write me at RJCherry@aol.com. Hope it helps, Ciao.

Hi,

It was great to hear from you so soon. It doesn't matter if there is a connection with the information you have provided, you're the first response to any of my postings. I am in the process of researching both sides of my parents however I must admit, the Malatest was well started with Dan Malatesta a distant cousin of mine who has recently passed at the age of 84. I'm going to compare the names you have provided with the info I have. My greatgrandfather had nine children so it may take a little time to x-reference.

It was really nice hearing from you

Darlene

Malatesta Family tie to Massachusetts?

Could your family be related to the Malatesta family in Massachusetts?

FYI, my grandfather's sister was married a Joseph Malatesta and they lived in Watertown in the 1970's. I believe she and her husband was born in the early 1900's.

Hi Stacy,

The Joseph Malatesta that may have been born around that date was the son of Louis Malatesta and Mary Olson. If these names connect I have additional info.
