Phil Apollo interviews author, podcaster and blogger Bob Sorrentino about his new book "Farmers and Nobles".Farmers and Nobles traces the research path of blogger and podcast host Bob Sorrentino. Bob began researching his family roots in 2008 beginning with his great-grandfather's calling card brought from Italy by his paternal grandmother Maria Luigia Piromallo. In 2018, he decided to share his experiences in a blog and in 2020 created his podcast Italian Roots and Genealogy. ​Bob firmly believes that our ancestors want to be found and shares fascinating stories from others who believe the same.​Bob gives us glimpse into his two Italian-American families and how their lives in America were very similar, although centuries ago the families came from two very different socio-economic classes in Italy. ​While his mother came from farmers from Toritto, Bari, his father came from gentry and nobility from Naples. Bob traces back these noble roots to the kings and queens of Western Europe. While it is true that millions can trace back, Bob explains how one small piece of evidence can open up the door to centuries of family history.​Farmers and Nobles has stories from both families, culminating with a "rooting trip" to Italy in 2022.All Automotive with Matt Clawson Informative automotive related topics.

Researching Biccari, Foggia, Puglia
A moment and a movement; New Biccari.  With Erick and Giuseppe Lucera and Rich LetoThe book illustrates how a moment in time when the author returned to his ancestral village let to research into the movement of people from Biccari to Philadelphia.  Erick along with cousins in Italy Gennaro and Giuseppe Lucera trace the 1200 Biccarese citizens to America, ending up mostly Philadelphia.  Using data analytics and his cousin’s local stories from previously published books, the new book shows when, why, and where the immigrants went.  The book shows that not only did most of the immigrants settle in dense areas together, but they were also closely related.  Using church records dating back to the 1550s, we found that most of the people share several of the same common ancestors who had come to Biccari from other villages. The book was inspired by a moment In time when Erick went to Biccari for the first time in 2009 and the goal of the book was to provide a path back for thousands of Biccarese Americans to enjoy the same moment of returning to their ancestral village.Our presentation will also focus on one of those moments for Erick’s cousin Rich, who accompanied him to Italy and Biccari for the first time this past summer.  After landing in Naples, we spent a week in our ancestral village of Biccari, then went down the coast of Puglia to villages, such as Molfetta and Barletta, that our ancestors lived in BEFORE coming to Biccari in the 1600s. We also spent time in Polignano Al mare, Lecce, Alberobello, and Ostuni. Rich will recount his feelings of walking the steps of our ancestors from Naples, Biccari and other villages we visited.All Automotive with Matt Clawson Informative automotive related topics.

Italians Swindled to New York
The unification of Italy in 1861 launched a new European nation promising to fulfill the dreams of Italians, yet millions of poor peasants still found themselves in economic desperation. By 1872, an army of speculators had invaded the countryside, hawking steamship tickets and promising fabulous riches in America. Thousands of immigrants fled to the New World, only to be abandoned upon arrival and forced to find work in hard labor. New York placed victims of deception at the State Emigrant Refuge on Ward's Island as the secretary of state and the Italian prime minister sought to intervene. Through steel-eyed determination, many surmounted their status and became leaders in business and culture. Authors Joe Tucciarone and Ben Lariccia follow the early stages of mass Italian immigration and the fraudulent circumstances that brought them to New York Harbor.All Automotive with Matt Clawson Informative automotive related topics.
