This Home Page was created in an attempt to trace my family heritage. The story, as told to me by my father, Albert John Gianocaro goes as follows:His father, Jack Gianocaro, was born in a town near Bari, Italy.His mother, Margaret Indiveri, was born in Bari, Italy (DOB 05/27/1898). Died in Feb. 1995 in San Jose, California.Their marriage was an arranged marriage by their brothers. Jack & Margaret were sent to San Jose, California, where they were wed; sight unseen prior to marriage, approx. 1919 or so.Together, they had three sons:Dominic Raymond Gianocaro (DOB: 12/13/24, San Jose, CA)Albert John Gianocaro (DOB: 08/05/25, San Jose, CA)Joseph John Gianocaro (DOB: 03/09/27, San Jose, CA)Jack Gianocaro worked as a carpeter in San Jose, CA, building homes. During the Depression (approx. 1933), Jack left his family, and was never heard from again. He was believed to have moved to New York, remarried, and had another family.His sons have had no desire to trace his whereabouts, as they were put up for adoption soon after his departure. Their mother was able to regain custody from Foster-Care. However, all the sons are very proud to be a "Gianocaro". My father speaks of the "Gianocaro blood-line" to be loving, caring and giving by nature.Our last name of "Gianocaro" is misspelled. Believed to have been changed when Jack entered the United States. The correct spelling is "Giannoccaro". In December of 1996, I was able to obtain several Giannoccaro listings through the Web. I wrote letters to these hopeful relatives; majority residing on the East Coast (NY & MA), but to date, I have not received any responses to my request of family information.I am very interested in developing a family tree for my daughter and siblings. We know very little about our heritage and would rejoice in any information you may have to assist us in our search for our roots.I will be more than willing to share my completed (?) family tree, with those who might be as interested as I.Please contact me with any information you might have, which will assist me in my task.Thank You,Michele A. Gianocaro
