    According to ellis island records and ancestry records Joe Dinicol’s great-grandmother Mary Cillis arrived in New York April 27, 1904 from port of departure being Naples, Italy. Joe’s great-grandfather Sevario Samuel Dinicol arrived in Boston, Massachusetts May 18, 1902 with departure place also being Naples, Italy. His ship was called the Cambroman. I think at least the great-grandmother has roots living in Campania, Naples, Italy.
