We have relatives in Pizzoli. The last name is Di Loreto. This is our first time on your web site and we must say that it is nice to read some of the comments from previous writers. We will be looking through more often.

My father Carmine Passante was born in Salle. I have never met anyone from this area outside of my family. My childhood was spent in Astoria, (Queens), New York where a lot of the residents were also from Salle. I was very happy to find Abruzzo on the internet.

I am enjoying your site and plan to spend much time going through it. Both my ancestral families are from Abruzzo and I recently visited the areas in L'Aquila and found them to be very beautiful, very pleasant to explore, and totally enjoyable. I can't wait to go back. Please write to me if you wish to discuss the Donatelli or DeSabato families or the area in general.

My grandfather came to the United States in 1901. His name was Frederico Rocca. My grandmother stayed behind in Vicoli with five children until there was passage money for her in 1905. My understanding is that she was born in Vicoli (Bettina Falsani) and that my grandparents lived there after they were married. If anyone has links to these families, I would love to hear from you. Old Vicoli was abandoned because of earth tremors and rebuilt. Does anyone know when? Planning a trip to Abruzzo in April '99 to find Old Vicoli.

Thanks to Abruzzo World Club for your great help in planning my trip this month to Torricella Peligna. I'd never have been able to make the contacts and overcome the language barrier without you. I almost feel like we're neighbors. I look forward to meeting you. E' Mondo poco!

Sono veramente contento di scoprire questo sito. Sono di Guardiagrele, Provincia di Chieti ma sono nato e vivo in Belgio. E' fantastico vedere che l'Abruzzo piace molto nel mondo. Vi auguro a tutti un fantastico Anno 1999.
