I am interested in any family history you may have on Zonas. I am aware that my great-grandparents, her name was Assunta Zona, came from Italy. My grandfather, Albert, was actually the second born and lived most of his life in North Huntingdon, PA.
(dob: 17 March 1912 died: 24 Nov 1991)
Though I am uncertain which city his parents actually came from I do know that it was indeed Italy.
I thank you for your input and help.

Avery,
Hi My Grandfather James R. Zona Lived in Larimer and N. Huntingdon PA all of his life. He and his wife Miriam owned Zona's Bar on Route 30. His fater was Nick Zona wh was born in Naples Italy and was married to Rose Migliozzi. I am searching for the connections in Italy. I know that my great grandfather had several siblings who come here from Italy too. I wil ask my grand mother for their names perhaps this will help you and I.

Best regards,

Wendy

Wendy,
Nick is the deceased brother of my deceased grandfather, Albert "Bucky" Zona. They were the two older boys of our great-grandparents. I am at a lose for his name but her name was, Assunta.
They were married in Naples Italy and migrated to PA before any of their children were born, according to my records. Both Nick and my Grandfather were registered in Italy, because their parents had hopes of returning to their home country.
Out of the 9 children, only two are still living, both still in PA. (There were 7 boys and 2 girls.) I would love to hear more from you and perhaps exchange information. I have only 3 or 4 generations completed on the Zona lineage. But my grandmother is still living and has a vast knowledge of the famliy history.
Thanks,
Avarey

ZONA IS THE MAIDEN NAME OF ASSUNTA. THE ITALIANS OFTEN NAMED THEIR CHILDREN AFTER THE GRANDPARENTS. WAS THE GRANDMOTHER OF YOUR ASSUNTA ALSO NAMED ASSUNTA ON THE FATHERS SIDE? WHAT WERE THE NAMES OF ENRIQUES' PARENTS?

Assunta was married to Enrique Zona, also from Naples. She and my gret-grandfather had 9 children all born here in the USA. I am not certain what their parents names are buut I know I have that information somewhere in my file banks. I am wondering if your Assunta is a sister of my great-grandfather's. I know several of his family members came over from the Old Country. But I am interested in knowing more about this and plan to search tomorrow and call my grandmother to ask if Enrique had a sister named Assunta as well. Please feel free to email me, I will continue to watch for posts.
Thanks, Avarey

My mother says that my information was not correct. Your grandfather Nick was my grandfather, Albert "Bucky"'s second cousin. I am very sorry for the misinformation. I was mistaking your grandfather for my great uncle Nick.
