My grandpa was a Zito and lived here in Chicago. I'm wondering if there's a relation. I'd be interested in seeing what information you have. Thanks.

The Zito family I'm referring to came from San Giuseppe Iato, Sicily and settled in Springfield, Illinois and Rockford, Illinois. As far as I know, I'm sure there were no Chicago connections to this family....

I had Zito family in Chicago. Joseph (b. 8/27/1892, d. 12/27/1974). His wife Agnes (b. 11/12/1893, d. 11/1983).
Could this be the same family?

No, the Zito family I speak of came from San Giuseppe Iato, Sicily and some settled in Springfield, Illinois while the others settled in Rockford, Illinois. As far as I know they have never lived in Chicago.

I am looking for info on the Zito family from Springfield. I have the following family members: Frank Zito, wife Lena. Frank was born in San Giuseppe Jato in 1893. Then there was Samuel Zito, born in 1890, settled in Springfield but was forced to return to Sicily after a prohibition violation, and Joseph Zito, who settled in Rockford. Now I am particulary interested in the realationship with the Zito and Giganti families. Ignazio Giganti was married to a Zito, and they had a son named Carlo Giganti (born 1907, passed away 1992). This Carl giganti appears to have had business associations with Frank Zito, but I suspect they were also related. Any help is really appreciated.

I have some info on the Giuseppe Zito who was born in San Giuseppe Iato, Sicily in 1906. He did settle in the Springfield area and moved to Rockford, Illinois with his brother-in-law Gaspare Bernardo Calo around 1931. Gaspare married Giuseppe's sister Providenza Zito I believe. Giuseppe himself married Maria Graziano in Rockford. As far as the Giganti connection, I would be interested in hearing that part. I had no knowledge of a Giganti connection.
The info here is what I know off the top of my head. I will have to check the info in my files and post that later.

Well, as I said, I am not sure they indeed were related, I just noticed that Frank Zito was associated with Carl Giganti during the latter part of prohibition, and that Carl's mothers maiden name was Zito.

Just a coincidence, or maybe they were related. I hoped somebody could clear it up. I will try to find out myself, if I know something, I'll post it.

Carl Giganti was not related to Frank Zito. I was told that Carl's mother Pietra Zito Giganti was from a different Zito family than Frank. I think Carl and Frank may have had some business dealings together. Carl's sister, Catherine, was a sister-in-law to Frank's wife Lena.

Hello all. I'm trying to find out some more information regarding Mr. & Mrs. Zito, as my mother was Mrs. Zito's personal hairsylist at their apartment in Springfield, IL. Rumor through my family is that my Grandfather work order Vito Impastato during the Teamster era. He was a bread delivery driver for Holsum Bread. My Mother paid tribute to the Zito's via the Roman Cultural Society.
