PRESERVING OUR HISTORY takes a serious look into the history ofthe immigrants from the town of Calitri, Italy. These immigrants broughtwith them a strong sense of community and kinship. This helped easetheir transition into America as they spread out to various locations andmaintained their ties to fellow Calitrani as well as to their common valuesof family, faith, courage and mutual support. While gradually assimilatinginto their new environs, newcomers left paper trails of documentsand information, some fortunately still treasured and preserved bydescendents, many others stored in various archival institutes waiting tobe discovered and added to known facts.
