Does your family have roots in the Cos Cob/Riverside area Do you have any ancestors that made the long ocean crossing during the late 1800's from Italy to the United States?  The Road to Calabria by Susan Bria is one woman's quest to learn more about her family history, and you just may learn something about your own family in the process.
Many of our ancestors left the beautiful rolling hills and quaint villages of Southern Italy in order to start a new life in the United States.  Susan's travels to Calabria ignited a passion for her to learn more about her family's traditions and origins.  She makes many trips to Rose, and to San Benedetto Ullano, meeting relatives and learning about family histories in the most surprising places.  Her book seems like a travel journal with its familiar characters and picturesque landscapes.
If you are interested in tracing your family history, The Road to Calabria can provide you with a "roadmap" on how to plan your journey to Calabria, and what to expect while you are there.  Susan offers many tips along the way, but the information in the book is like a biographical novel.
She has included some of her Family Trees that depict Italian settlers in the Greenwich area.  As an extra bonus, Susan has provided the reader with several well-loved and time-tested favorite recipes that have been passed down through the generations.  This was a thoroughly enjoyable book from cover to cover!
