I am researching my grandmother and grandfather, who both emigrated to the USA in the early 1900's. They were both born in towns that were part of Abruzzo (when they were born) however their towns are actually located in Molise now that Abruzzo was seperated. My grandmother with the name of Maria Mignogni was born in a town called Arriccia (provincia di Isernia and my grandfather was born in Campobasso his name was Nichola Santopolo. I believe that one of my grandfather's brothers went to Argentina and died there from appendicitis. My grandfather's mother died when he was very young and his father remarried when my grandfather was still young. My grandparents both emigrated to Philadelphia, Pa, and met and married in the Italian community there. They had 4 daughters and 1 son. I have not been able to find any information on them. If anyone thinks they have any info on them, please e-mail. Io parlo Italiano. e-mail me at: viacelano at YAHOOdotCOM

Mi chiedevo come mai tanto desiderio di comunicare con le persone del propio paese Visto che ormai si vive solo di odio e dicerie
Un messaggio a tutti fate come me do tanto rispetto e esigo tanto rispetto e non mi importa di quello che si dice o che si fa la cosa piu bella è riscoprire le proprie origini e non rinnegarle mai un saluto caloroso a tutti coloro che vanno in cerca di qualcosa ciao renato

Looking for information on my husband's maternal side of the family. The name is DiValerio. I know that Nicholas (Nicola) came to America from the Abruzzi region. I believe his wife's name was Carmela DiOrio. My husband's grandfather was born in Montgomery County, PA. His name was Dominick. I know he had at least one brother named Joseph. Does anyone know WHEN Nicholas came to America? Does anyone know about his wife? Thanks for the TERRIFIC website!
