JUNE 2001





My great grandmother was from CASTEL DI SANGRO (L'AQUILA). Her maiden name was ANTONIETTA ABUMERATTA. I'm not sure I'm spelling the last name correctly. She had three sisters. She came to the United States in 1902, the same year she married my great grandfater JACK MANN who I think had to change his name at Ellis Island from the last name of DI MENNA so that it was more American sounding. I think he was from the same region of Italy. He came to the US in 1890 and settled first in Pennsylvania and then in Waynesburg, Ohio. He had a sister in Italy. Her name was MRS. IRENE MARZANO. If anyone has any information they could pass along to me about why some immigrants changed their name upon arriving in the US or if anyone knows about my relatives I would very much appreciate it. Grazie, molto grazie!!

My grandmother left her birthplace, Pescina, a few months after the massive earthquake of 1915 centered near there. Her name then was Maria Vincenza Soricone. Pescina is just off the major AutoStrada east of Rome about 80 miles, in the Abruzzi,Abruzzo region. Her parents died in the earthquake, as did 3 of 4 residents of the town at the time. I visited Pescina in May, 2001. I would be interested in communicating with anyone with tips as how to get more information about former residents. We visited the town cemetery, but were unable to learn much because of the language challenge. Her mother's maiden name was Pera. The town is in a pretty setting, but obviously very poor to this day. It appears to have been established hundreds if not more than a thousand years before, with ancient ruins just above town on a steep hillside.

I believe that the father of Felice was Girolamo Libertini but I am not sure. Finizia Leonetti was born in Castelnuovo in 1895. Her mother was Amalia Fliminni.

My grandfather, Giovanni DiFalco (a linguist in the Italian Army who was fluent in Italian [many dialects]; English; French; Arabic; Spanish; Polish; German; Russian; and, Greek) arrived in the USA on March 16, 1900 in Ellis Island. He sailed on the ship, The Patricia, from the French port of Boulogne/Pas-de-Calais. He and his family had lived in Lama dei Peligni (in Abruzzo). His parents were Tomasso DiFalco (Born June 18, 1852 in Lama dei Peligni) and Anna Angelucci (born in 1856). Tomasso’s parents were Giovanni DiFalco (Born around 1835) and Maria Ricchiuti. Anna’s parents were Guiseppe Angelucci and Maria Nicola (surname is either Broila or Eroibo, born around 1830.) That’s all I have so far. If you can offer me any information, I would be most appreciative. I believe he had many brothers and sisters.

Dear Friends

I write you for help me to promote the Italian Culture in the world, for always maintain alive the memories of our ancestors.They left Italy to seek one's fortune abroad, for themselves and for their children.

My name is Castolo Teodoro,
i’m 39 years old, I have married with Rosaria D'Ambrosio and we have three children, Francesco 7 years, Alessia 5 years and Carola 4 years.I live in Campagna in province of Salerno, Italy, to 40 Km from the village where I have born, Castelnuovo di Conza to the boundary with the province of Potenza and Avellino.

My address is: teodoro.c change tiscalinet.it

Castelnuovo is famous for the his greatly sheds emigrants in each part of the world. Also in my family there has stayed and there are relatives that live far from the Italy.I remember when to the age of 10 years every 15 days my mother dictated me the letter that I wrote for the grandfathers that stayed in Germany.
My father remembers us when in the first years of the 1900 and after the First World War many castelnovesi has left for Africa, Nigeria, Congo, Somalia, Red Sea, like Pugliese Vitale, Del Vecchio Leonardo, Di Geronimo Francesco. After they have left for Canada, United States, Central America, Martinique and Guadalupa, America of the South, Australia, like the Venutolo families, De Rogatis, Annicchiarico, Del Vecchio, Di Ruggiero, Di Donato, Custode, , Di Domenico, Federici, Mastrodomenico and so much other.

After the Second World War the castelnovesi have emigrated in each part of the world, in Europe and greatly in Venezuela, like my father, my uncle, my grandfather and other relatives.

Years of joys and pains, fortunes and adversities.

Today I would want these feelings are always alive in the hearts of those of Italian origin and they don't come forgotten ever. This is possible because I have realized a splendid engraving on wood to hold home, a very handsome reminder the origins of the family and do it know through internet to the wibesite:

Ciao ragazzi! This is an AMAZING website! I'm researching my family lineage and am trying to find out about my great-great-grandfather, Constantino Buzzelli, who married a woman named Gaetana (don't know her last name), and they were farmers in Castel di Sangro. They had 2 sons who came to America in the early part of the 20th Century and their names are Edoardo and Raffaele Buzzelli, the latter being my great-grandfather. Constantino's son Raffaele married a woman named Carmela Capotosto, my great-grandmother. Carmela's parents were Giuseppe Capotosto and Esther Iacobucci, and they, too, were from Castel di Sangro. Anyone out there who thinks they may be related or who may have any information on these folks, I'd really love to hear from you! Un abraccio a tutti gli abruzzese!

Saluto! My great-grandfather, Cosimo Roberti, came to the U.S. from Lentella in 1896 by way of Antwerp, Belgium. He returned to Lentella and came again in 1899. He returned again, married Bambina Fabrizio, had a child (my grandfather, Antonio Roberti), both of whom he brought to the U.S. in 1911 by way of Naples. He returned once more and came to the U.S. the last time in 1922 where he lived in Philadelphia until his death in January 1966. I am interested in hearing from anyone in Lentella or elsewhere related to either Cosimo or Bambina.

Hi..........God brought me to this website. I know he did because I just found out my grandfather Attilio Di/De Palma was from Alfadeno, Italy. I never knew him however The little information I gathered, wants me to find out more about his life. He supposedly arrived to the US through Ellis Island in 1914 at the age of 18. He married my Grandmother Antoinette Grindatto and lived in Buffalo, New York up till about 1920. My mother was born in 1918 and when she was 2 years old, my grandfather disappeared. During his stay in Buffalo, he was a classical violinist and played with the symphony orchestra. (Strange, that I am an avid classical music lover}. I am sure that he may have remarried and continued his career as a violinist. I forgot to mention his last name was changed to De Palma, but was Di Palma on the passenger list. I would deeply appreciate anyone who can help or knows the names of ships that arrived from Italy in 1914. I cannot get to a family history library as I am fully disabled. Thanking you.........

Hello everyone. I am searching for relatives of my grandfather, NICOLA ODOARDI. He was born in PIETRANICO in approximately 1903. He immigrated to the United States in 1920, arriving at Ellis Island on December 25, 1920 aboard the Guglielmo Pierce, which departed from Naples. Upon arrival in the United States, he settled in Georgetown, CT. His last name was changed to Edwards. In approximately 1930 he married CATHERINE NUNZARRO, also from PESCARA, if not also from PIETRANICO. I believe NICOLA ODOARDI had 4 brothers, all of whom remained in Italy. I would love to hear from anyone with information regarding the ODOARDI family from PIETRANICO. Thanks much, Paul.

GRANDE and TANTALO and LIPPA - I am the granddaughter of Cesidio (also known as Giuseppe or Joseph) and Costanza (also known as Concetta or Constance) Grande. They were both born in Villavallelongo in the Province of L'Aquila, Abruzzi. Cesidio was married two times - his first wife died (don't know her name or anything about her) but they did have a child, Maria. He came to the United States for the first time 08 April 1902 and then went back to marry Costanza. He came back to the US for the final time on 09 August 1909 and settled in Rochester, New York in the suburb of Irondequoit. My grandmother's maiden name was TANTALO. She followed Cesidio to America on 09 October 1911 with my two Aunts, Liberata Grande (who was 1 year old) and Maria Grande (who was 10 years old). I spent many a childhood summer in Rochester with my grandparents. Loved my nonno's homemade wine, and nonna's cooking - homemade pasta, bread, zeppole, lasagna, ravioli, etc. If anyone has any information about the GRANDE, TANTALO or LIPPA families please E-mail me.

This really is a great web site. I love browsing thru it.

But it is so nice to finally see a town where i thought nobody ever came from since my grandparents came to America in 1923.my mothers father was Dominic Daniele his fathers name was Marco and his mothers name was Camilla Scamuffa he married Mariicola Salomone her father was Valentino and her mother was Anna bozzi. my father Francisco di stefano came from torricell palena cheti. His parents remained in Italy, but he had two uncles here in phila pa. One lived to be 100 years old and the other went back to Italy around 1949.there are a lot of Distefanos here in phila pa, but i don't know if we are related. My parents divorced and then he passed away in 1952. the ones living here could be related because the uncle that lived to a hundred had 6 or 7 children most of them boys, one of them was a priest . Anyway I love surfing thru. some one from Lettopalena keeps me in touch with chieti its another great site. I guess we all sometime or another wants to touch something from the past.

My grandfather (Giuseppe Agatone)left Casoli, Italy in March of 1906 (he was 15 yrs old). Between 1899 and 1921 approximately 20 Agatones left Italy. I remember being told that my grandfather had a sister that still lived on the family farm in Casoli. This was told to me by my grandmother when I was approx. 12 yrs. old (whew !!! I'm 55 now). My question is - are there any AGATONES left in Italy.

I am searching for any ancestral information about Giovanni Sulpizio. He was born in Chiete, March 11, 1894. Left Italy on December 5, 1911, and arrived at Ellis Island on January 12, 1912. He married Julia Scalzetti, daughter of Carmine Scalzetti. The only other information I have about Giovanni is that he had a brother named Donato. Please e-mail me if you have any information about this man. Thank you.

His father came over earlier and his name was Guiseppe (Joseph) Roselli. He was born in July 4, 1988. I don't know where he was born. If anyone has any suggestions for me in looking up information please email me. Thanks.
