Hey Cousins! DO NOT MISS: We now have all kinds of video online - Old 8mm home movies, videos shot in Italy - on our Video page!

"By understanding the reality of the people who came before us, we can see why we look at the world the way we do, and what our contribution is toward future progress. We can pinpoint where we come in, so to speak, in the longer development of civilization, and that gives us a sense of where we are going."
- James Redfield

Hello to our extended family! We are seeking anyone with the surnames Ietto (aka Yetto or Letto), and Costanzo with roots in Delianuova (Reggio Calabria), Italy or the names Amodeo, Lucchese and Sammarco from Palermo, Sicily in order to build a family tree.

My name is Mark Yetto, and I live outside of Buffalo, New York in the USA. My family name was originally Ietto but, like many of the Ietto's in the USA, it was changed to Yetto many years ago.

Family Tree Progress:
The tree contains about 1800 people so far and is growing all the time. All names are indexed, so you can easily find your branch of the tree. Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions about this site in general. Please send additional info or corrections to me here. Anything that you know about your ancestors (names, birth and death dates and locations, spouse's name and date and location of marriage, occupations) is very helpful. Even the smallest detail or anecdote could end up being the piece of information that helps us link the tree together.

My trips to Delianuova have helped me to join many branches of Ietto's together. Of the 15 Ietto "clans" we know of, 6 of the largest are now linked together, and we hope to tie in 4 others soon. I'm having less success in finding a link to the last 5 families (any info would be appreciated!):
