I enjoy having the knowledge of where I came from and where my ancestors are. Any memory of them should always live on even though they are gone, helping others find their families will keep their memories alive. Just because we lose people, doesn't mean their memories will be lost with them.|

I was doing a bit of research and came upon your work with the Ranalli and Leone families. My maternal grandmother is Angelna Leone D'Alesio (D'Alessio, Dalesio). She was the firstborn sister (I think) of Maria Grazziella and Carmella whose names you probably recognize.
Our family centers in Rochester, NY but we always had a close relationship with the Midland, PA family.
Of course, we knew Aunt Mary from NYC. What is your relationship to her? We also knew "Moe". Are you related to him?
I have always had trouble accessing my grandparent's grave on the site for their cemetery. (Dionisio and Angelina at Holy Seplecure). I was so surprised this morning to find them referenced by you, with an actual picture of their stone. How did you accomplish that? I think you may have also added a picture of Zi Carmella at the Beaver cemetery. That is one I haven't seen before.
I have a trove of pictures, but not a great deal of information on the families--especially the two sisters Leone who married two brothers D'Alessio and would be glad to share if you like.
Hoping to hear from you, Dennis Muoio----probably your cousin!
