This site was built in its entirety by Joseph R. Manusia,
son on Angelina Interlicchia. Joseph's research was responsible for
finding the records of every person listed on this site and for building
this family tree. However, he wants to acknowledge and thank Elizabeth
"Bette" Sasso and Stephanie Thorne Broche who are the other two
thirds of the "we" referred to above. It was our years of
cooperative research, record sharing and brain storming that resulted in
all Interlicchia in the world being connected.
