I am searching for an information regarding Giuseppe D'Onofrio who came to America during 1903. He was born in Spoltore, Pescara, Italy in 1889. He indicated on a marriage document that his father was Tony (Antonio??)and his mother was Angelina. I believe he had a brother named Paul.

My father was born in Castelpetroso in 1904 and came to the U.S.in 1921.My dad's name was Michele, son of Antonio & Philomena. I visited Castelpetroso and a little borough of Casale were my dad was born. It was very sad to see the original house only had one wall still standing.I believe Casale only had about 10 houses. My cousins still live in Castelpetroso ,Vittorio& Teresa D'Uva and their son Fabio,and with them lives a great uncle,Don Gaetano.Castelpetroso is a beautiful old town.The surrounding hillside was beautiful. My wife and I can't wait to return to Italy and visit the region .

My mother is Christaina Gregory, a female bodybuilder that eloped with my father a sailor in Calabar, cross River State Nigeria then. My Mother continually bit my Dad which led to his death in 2003. As a result of this, she was convicted by the Nigerian Government. Before this period I had never been taken to my home town nor my Mum's town and none of my parents family members have come to ask. Now I am a final year student in Yaba Tech Lagos. I am looking for who will assist me in my school project which had costed to $115.00. Besides any one that knows about the family of Gregory Ebesiba (my father's name) should endeavour to contact me promptly.

I have an accordion belonged to my father. He passed away in 1987. I still have it and don't know what to do with it. It has Galanti Bros N.Y. on it and also my fathers name on it S. Humienny. It's a beautiful piece of machine and has a good tune. It must be 75 yrs. old or more. My grandfather bought it for him back in late 20's or early 30's.

My grandmother Lucy DiPonzio, her sister Sue and brother Ernest (english names) left Villavallelongo, Province L'Aquila, Abruzzi Region sometime around 1912. I cannot find any information on arrival in the US so I'm pretty sure that they came to the US via Canada, settling in Rochester, NY. These are paternal ancestors. I think that there was also a sister or cousin Ann DiPonzio (again the english version)who was married to Angelo - a shoemaker. My grandmother married Saturno Bruni from Roccoggora (near Rome) around 1913 in the US. They had 5 children (Theresa, Armalinda, Armando and Ubaldo - one daughter died as a small child and 6 grandchildren. Sue DiPonzio married Michael Lodato - they had 2 sons, Thomas and Michael and Ernest had one dauther Cynthia - all resided in Rochester. I am planning to visit Italy in 2 to 3 years and would like to get any information regarding relatives that I might have in Villavallelongo (or Roccoggorgo). If anyone has information regarding the families mentioned, please e-mail me. Thank you!

Bonjour à Castel del Monte,
Je suis venue à Castel del Monte en 1985 voir le village où mon père est né et a émigré vers le nord de la France pour y être mineur de fond. Je reviendrai un jour prochain dans ce superbe village, mais pour le moment, je recherche pour mon arbre généalogique, toutes les informations sur les familles DI BATTISTA, RATTENNI, ALOISI, MUCCIANTE, BASILE qui pourraient m'être communiquées. J'ai connaissance d'une Rosa BASILE née en 1849, mariée à Berardino, Domenico DI BATTISTA né en 1843 et mort en 1901.
Le site est très interessant.
A bientôt surement
