My grandfather, Pasquale Filice, left San Nicola as a young man for Morgan Hill, CA.  They were quite poor  and were not able to give his grandmother a proper burial.  Upon arriving in the US he promised that he would return to his hometown one day  and build a mausoleum in her honor.  After traveling twice to Cosenza in southern Italy and exploring San Nicola, Piane Crati and the surrounding area I finally found the mausoleum, barely recognizable.  I was also able to reconnect with family in Piane Crati.  This connection is on my mother's side but my father's family (Maida) is from the same area.  I have such wonderful memories of these two trips and am so eager to return.  I would love to hear from you.  Rosalind Maida Farotte
