Hello To Everyone From Abruzzo, (Cansano)
Yes, Cansano. As I said, My Name is Anthony Di Giallonardo. My Entire Family came from Cansano in the molise section of Abruzzo. My parents moved to NJ after WWII. most of my family Members moved to Austriala. Those are the family members I am looking for. I am looking for my father's cousins who live somewhere in Melbourne.
If there is someone in Melbourne who is a Di Giallonardo or formerly a Di Giallonardo, please e-mail me. I would like to chat with you. My Father's name is Rocco and my mother is Mariastella. I have never been to Cansano and though my Italian is rusty I hope to go back someday. If anyone from Austrialia reads this, please contact me. My father has three or five cousins who were related to him. Their names are Quido, Francesco, Gino and Giambatisa and Antonio Di Giallonardo. I don't know if any of this people still live in Austrialia or live somewhere else. This is just about all the information I have. Thanks again to everyone who is reading this.
