Re: Rich from CT

Just came across this site, and would like to add a bit of information on the Bridgeport Riccios, for what it may be worth. As others on this thread have noted, most of the Riccios in Bridgeport are.were from Castelfranco (generally refreed to as the "Castles"). However, my family was from Ariano Irpino (not far from Castelfranco), Provincia di Avellino. My father was Frank D. Riccio, an MD who had his practice on Barnum Avenus in Stratford (across from Candelora's Appliances on the corner of Barnum and Thompson). At the time (in the fifties and sixties) there was another Dr. Frank Riccio, but he was Frank J. Riccio (I'm pretty sure he was a Castelfranco Riccio), who had his practice on barmum Avenue, Bridgeport (Barnum and East Main). Mail was always getting sent to the wrong Dr. Frank Riccio, as both were on Barnum Avenue. We were the only non-"Castle" Riccios in the Bridgeport area. My mother's family were the Mingolellos; my grandfather was Tony (Antonio) Mingolello; he had brothers Generoso and Domenico (Mincuccio). All of the Mingolellos (or just Mings, as often referred to) in the Bridgeport area are related.
Thanks- Ralph Riccio
