Rodolfo Casciato was born in Pizzoferrato, Chieti on 15 May 1880. He married Teresina Napoleone and they and their daughter Soleda (born 1900) imigrated to the US and lived in Portland Oregon where Dominic A, Attilio, Arthur E., and Elizabeth were born.
Who were Rodolfo's parents? What is the town of Pizzoferrato like? Is it in the mountains?

Lasciai il mio Abruzzo molti anni fa da Orsogna il mio paese di nascita ,come tanti altri di Orsogna che lasciarono prima ho dopo di me per emigrare in America. L'addio al nostro paese fu senza promessa di ritorno, si lasciò tutto al destino che seguiva. Si incominciava un'altra vita in una nuova cultura differente a quello che noi lasciammo quando il futiro dipendeva tutto dal frutto del nostro lavoro e del nostro sacrificio,gli anni passano fino a quando un giorno si comincia a sentire la nostalgia di rivivere i ricordi del nostro paese che vivano ancora nella nostra mente. Nostalgia che con il passare dei giorni s'intensifica sempre di piu, si incomincia a sentire un richiamo che non si puo rifiutare, si torna a visitare il paese che ci diete vita. Credevo che il mio paese avesse dimendicato di me invece trovai il paese che mi aspettava per accogliermi e abracciarmi Nicola Di Pietro

My mom emigrated back in the 60's and the other half of the family emigrated in the 1920's. Both halfs of the family are from the Abruzzi region. By sheer coincidence, if there is such a thing, I met and married a man who was transfered to the west by his company. Through a chance meeting and eventually a date, I found out his family is from the same place and emigrated in the 1930's. I am interested in the name Liberatore, which I heard was of Spanish possibly basque origin. The Spanish occupied central Italy at one point. I am also interested in the name DiPaolo. Is the name Polo, as in the famous Marco, a corruption of this name?

We are trying to find information about my husband's family who lived in Castel di Sangro. His great-grandfather was Salvatore Amicone ~1855 to ~1912; married to Vincenza Yacbucco Amicone (11-28-1878 to ~1939). Their children were Antonio, Gus, Armando, Rocco, & Anna Marie. My husband's father was Antonio (Tony Amicon). If anyone knows anything at all about our family, or has any suggestions, please write us! Our daughter is studying Italian in Italy now and hopes to find some information about our family, and hopefully, some distant relatives, in Castel. Graci!!

My grandfather Luigi Sacripante came from the town of Penne whose town's archive aren't computerized yet. He emigrated to New York on Aug. 10, 1921,born in 1898 married to Gracia Brandolini from Penne also, but met in NY. She was born on Aug.26, 1903, emigrated to NYC in 1915 aboard the Lusitannia arriving at Ellis Island. My grandfather's father is Amaro Sacripante born in Penne in 1865. I'd like to trace it back further as Sacripante I was told dates back to B.C. meaning Sacred Pantheon, the person in charge of Sacrificing. I have a family Creast and other information, but would love to delve back further in to histoey. Any info would suffice. Penne Abruzzo is a beautiful place and went there on my Luna Di Miele and met all my relatives whom I hadn't seen since 1967. I'd love to retire there or back in The good ol' US of A one day.

Hello to all my paisani from Castel di Sangro. We have lived in Australia from 1960. My father's name is Dino Rucci and my mother's name was Matilda. Her maiden name was Santucci. I have a sister Gioconda. We would like to hear from any paisani around the world that know my parents. My aunt still lives in Castel di Sangro and her name is Guiseppina Rucci. I hope to hear from someone in my home town or nearby.
Regards, to all from downunder. I will put another shrimp on the barbie for all my paisani and have an extra beer to celebrate sending this message.
