"My Grandmother is Helen Novogurski. Her name was even underlined by her in the photo. She was born in 1912, so I figure that she must be around the age of 10 in that photo; that's how I came up with the date of 1922. I think that it would be wonderful if you add a little about my family under the photo. Here is some information for you."

I am searching for information on the following families. All that lived in the town of Herkimer: CELIO, AIELLO, MANIERI, SERVADIO, and VALLESE. Also, the NOVOGURSKI family from Dolgeville, New York. Also the name CATRICALA, but I am unsure of where they lived.

My great-grandfather Pio CELIO, born 23 March, 1885 in Colonnello, Italy. He came to the US in 1910, and went back to Italy to marry Giovina VALLESE, born 1 June, 1885 in Tortoreto, Italy. They married on 27 December, 1912, also in Tortoreto, Italy. They had seven children all born in Herkimer.

My great-grandfather Americo MANIERI, born 22 November, 1891 in Palazzo S Girvasio, Italy. He came to the US in 1909, and was married to Clementina SERVADIO, born 22 September, 1891 in Arpoli, Italy. They had four children, with one being born in Italy, and the other three all in Herkimer.

My great grandfather Natale AIELLO, born 1890, in Chiavari, Italy. He married Caroline CATRICALA, born 1885 in Italy. They had four children, two born in Herkimer, two in Italy.

My great-grandfather Peter Leo NOVOGURSKI, born 27 June, 1886 in Lodz, Russia (now Poland). He came to the US in 1907. He was married to Mary Agnes CZERWIEC, born 1886 in Stasaw, Russia(now Poland). They had ten children all born in Dolgeville, New York.

If anyone has information on any of these family names, I would be most thankful to hear from you. Please let me know as I am trying to find siblings of my great-grandparents. Thank you. Nadine Blot.
