I'm looking for information on my family- Torricelli.
I know my great-grandfather was Antonio Torricelli born around 1888. Came to the US around 1904-1913. Worked for the railroad which led him to Virginia where he met my great-grandmother. He left VA and through word of mouth believe he headed to the Philadelphia area. We also know there was a sister who died young Nettie Alice (who my grandmother was named for). Some records we have found if this is the right Antonio Torricelli say he returned to Italy with an American Embassay address. I also know his parents were Nutony and Vittola Torricelli. Any help would be welcome.
Thank you.

My father's name was Nicola Ludovico. He was the only one from his family that came to the USA about 1913. He had 3 brothers and two sisters. Who I'm sure are deceased by now. He and my mother's parents all came from Termoli.
I would like to to know if I have any relatives in Italy with the surname of Ludovico or Donofrio.

I am researching my father's family from Raiano, L'Aquila, Italy. My father was Emidio (called Emil) DiGiulio, born in 1924 to Venanzio DiGiulio (son of Giovanni DiGiulio and Elisabetta Tiberi) and Vincenza DiGiulio (daughter of Emidio DiGiulio and Maria Sofia Arquilla). They were cousins, either second or third, I think. Nonno & Nonna also had a daughter, Giovannina (called Jennie), born in 1923. Grazie mille for any assistance!
