I hope you have found this site interesting. My own interest developed
from my research into the community in which our family lived in
Manchester, UK. This was Ancoats, Little Italy, which forms the
basis of my other site, www.ancoatslittleitaly.com.
Below are some links to help you in your genealogy search on the
surname Rea. A good route is to write to the parish church of your
communi of origin; for a small fee they may research your family
tree. Also try the Town Hall of Arpino (Tel: (Italy) 0776.85211).

Gilroy Was Here!
Jim Glen & Ian MacFarlane
The life and career of Scottish boxing legend, Bert Gilroy, real
name Antonio Rea. Born to Italian immigrant parents, his outstanding
boxing career suffered during the war years, as did many Italians
living in Britain at this time. Scottish champion, and potential
middleweight champion of the world, he 'was the unluckiest champion
that ever was.'
