Buon giorno,

Mi chiamo Sam Sullivan (prima che sia cambiato era Salvino). Sono di Isla di Mercer, stato di Washington, USA. Il mio nonno paterno era Antonio Salvino. È nato nel 1873. La mia nonna paterna era Liberata (De’Bendetto) Salvino. È nata nel 1890. Provenivano dall'Abruzzo, possibilmente Pratola Peligna.
La miei moglie, figlio ed io stanno viaggiando in Italia in aprile 2005. Desideriamo individuare i membri della famiglia in Italia.
Prego email me a salvino444 at YAHOOdotCOM se avete de informazioni sui parenti possibili in Italia.
Sorry for my grammar, but I am just learning Italian.

My paternal grandparents were both from Roseto degli Abruzzi...I've been able to contact my grandmother's family but have been unsuccessful with the SALLADINI..I've even sent Christmas greetings to all the SALLADINI in the phone book in and around Roseto..the younger generation that replied don't remember and the few older generation have problems with communication..I will try again this season with the help of Babelfish and see what happens. In the meantime, if anyone knows of the SALLADINI and could help me with a connection I would be grateful to hear from you..Many thanks for reading and I hope that everyone has a HAPPY and PEACEFUL CHRISTMAS season and I hope that you locate your families...Sincerely, EILENA (SALLADINI) LUZZI, Gibbstown, NJ...(USA)

My Grandfather, Luigi D'Alonzo came from the little town of Altino in 1913. He immigrated through Philadelphia and ended up living in Pleasantville, NJ right outside of Atlantic City, NJ. I am interested in making contact with any relatives. There are a number of D'Alonzo's in Philadelphia, but the ones I remember visiting as a child were Joe and Lena D'Alonzo who lived in Overbrook and had two boys, Mike and Anthony. I would love to get in touch with those folks as well as any other D'Alonzo family members.

To whom it may concern
I wish I could say this in person, perhaps in the very near future, thankyou so much for making it possible for me to be as close as I can at the moment to my family in Casacanditella, of which I have not spoken to for years, only relied on elderly family in Australia. This is fantastic, and again thankyou!

My father, Cosmo Quattrone, came to US in 1900 and settled in Steubenville, Ohio. Dino Crocetti worked for him, and before Dino(Dean Martin) left Steubenville, he gave a keychain to my father. The old fashioned kind--over one foot long, Dean Martin in block letters with a gold die at bottom. I am selling this to highest bidder. Serious inquiries only--please

My family comes from Cagnano Amiterno in the Province of L'Aquila Abruzzo Italia. My great grandparents were Pietro Mercurio born approx 1889 and Nunziatto DiStefano (Mercurio). Pietro came to the US via Naples to NY in 1907 and again in October 1913 and settled in San Francisco CA. Nunziato & Dora came to USA via Naples in May 1914 and also went to SF. This is all well documented through Ellis Island records & I've actually viewed the manifest for each ship they came over on and saw their names and country/town of origin listed. When they settled in SF, they had 2 more children. My Nono is Albert Mercurio born in San Francisco CA on 4/30/1916. He also had another sister who was born in San Francisco named Lucia. I am also related to Monsignor DiStefano. He was my great grandmothers nephew--my Nono's 1st cousin.
If you are from this area or are a distant relative, please contact me. My family and I would love to hear from you. We are planning to visit our region of Italy some day!
