 My grandmother's maiden name was Palma Grimaldi.  She was from Italy and over there married a Vincenzio Rinaldi.  They came to the states and my grandfather who was an iron worker was killed on Broadway in NY City.  My grandmother moved back to Italy where she married again,  She died around 1960 in Italy.  I know nothing about her or my grandfather's relatives except my grandmother had a sister Katherine. My father said they lived in Naples and in a town outside of naples called Rocasetta?  If anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

My grandmother's was Palma Grimaldi as well,this is what my father and mother said me.

I don't know too much about her but based on what my father/mother said me here following some iinformation.

After birth my father has been given to an orphanage and has never met and knew who was the mother and father.
After 24 years the mother tried to find and meet his son (my father, Renato Bonichini) and met in Rieti (Italy) and then after few days she left and there are no further information since then.
My father said me that his origins were Roccasecca province of Frosinone (Italy)

I am flabbergasted.  My grandmother married again but i do not know her second husband's name. They had two sons one was Salvatore and I do not know the other son's name. They were my father's half brothers. My father had a brother who died in the states Lorenzo Rinaldi.  Could you and I possibly be related?  If you would like you can email me and we can talk about this further.  I will try my best to find out more. My email is skeetz2@yahoo.com.  This is such a interesting turn of events.
