I have been searching for information on my great grandfather, Carlo Raco, born in approx. 1865 in or near Gerace, Molochio, or Plati. He was adopted, and I do not know if Raco is his birth name or the name of his adoptive parents. There is a connection between the Macri family and the Raco family. In the early 1900's, Pete and Dominic Raco, from Italy, lived in HIllsville, PA and were boarders in the Macri home, with Joe Macri as head of household. Carlo Raco, married to Carmela Bumbaca Albano, and lived in Hillsville, PA at the same time. I do not know if Dominic Raco and Pete Raco were related to Carlo Raco.
If anyone has any information on these Raco's or Macri's I would be very interested. Have you discovered anything else about Fortunato Raco and Mary Macri?
