My grandmother was Margherita Montemurro and my grandfather Vincenzo DeLorenzo. They married in the early 1900s and move to America. My father told me we still had relatives in Aliano and Montemurro, but I do not know how to find them. I've visited Italy twice, but was only able visit Tuscany. If anyone has knowledge of the DeLorenzos or Montemurros, I would love to hear from you.

My grandfather was Ted (Theodore) DeLorenzo, who just died last year at around ninety years old. He lived most of his life in Oakland and the San Francisco Bay Area. He told me the DeLorenzos were from Sicily and came here via New York. (His ancestor, whose name I forget, came from Sicily as a orchestra musician and worked for an opera house in a northern Italian city). Ted's brother Eugene DeLorenzo lives in Chico, Ca. We are somehow related to the actor Michael DeLorenzo who has worked on several television series. Michael is an indirect cousin of my mother, whose maiden name was Vicky DeLorenzo (now V. Wylie of Vacaville, CA) I have no idea if you are related to me or not, but I hope this info helps.

Hello Daloia,
Some of the Delorenzos went to Brazil, to the city of Guaranesia in the state of Minas Gerias between 1860 - 1880.
My grand great father was called Antonio Delorenzo, and we believe he left Italy after the earthquake that destroyed half of Montemurro.
He came to Brazil with two sons and had five more in Brazil. The last of the seven is my grand father, Antonio Delorenzo Filho ( Filho means Son that can use the same name of father or I) who was born in 1898 already in Brazil.
My great grand father probably was brother or cousin of the father of Theodore Delorenzo. If you have more info let us know.
All the best, in the end somehow we are related.

Michael DeLorenzo may be the son of Arthur Delorenzo, Uncle Ted's brother who lived in NY City. Arthur is deceased. Arthurs's wife was/is Carmen, I think. She may still be living. I met them once. My sister says they had children. Arthur's wife's family was originally from Puerto Rico, if I recall correctly. It was a long time ago. There are probably a hoard of other DeLorenzo cousins there if the opera musician had a large family. Michael is a pretty popular name among Italian Americans. He could be related via the great-grandfather's brother. Stage names are also often adopted from mother's maiden names, so he could be related via a great-great aunt from the De Lorenzo line. That part remains a mystery for now. Vicky is my first cousin via Ted's first wife, Irma. He remarried after she died. I know the history, but not all of it. If you can contact Eugene he may be a better source. As far as I know he and his wife are still living. Eugene has three daughters who may have some contact with your NY cousins. Eugena (Eugenia?) Theodora, and Christina.
