I am trying to locate my husband's father relatives in Navelli, Italy. My husband father was born Sebastiano Quintilio March 19, 1901. His father's name was Pietro Quintilio and his wife was Guilio (Torlone) Quintilio. Sebastiano had a his named Ada who married name was Papaoli. Sebastiano Quintilio left for the USA with Franceso Federico and several other friends. After arriving on Ellis Island NY they went to visit relatives in Cochrane, Canada and then Sebastiano left for Boston to stay with his cousins Pio and Pietro Torlone. If anyone has any information on Sebastiano Quintilio please let me know. Thank You.

What a wonderful site. I would like to reach out and know anyone who knew my father Emilio Palumbo born in San Benedeto de Marsi, L' Aquila.
Also my father had a good friend Umberto Sclocchi, both are departed. I would like to speak to who ever knew them. They were born about 1927 - 1930.
Thank You

Tufillo - I was so happy to find this site! My sister and I absolutely treasured our mother, Ilda Ramundi (married name was Maggio, she married in 1965). Our dear mother passed away in 1995 (only 68yrs old)and we would love to find any family/friend of my mother, grandmother Antonia (Eugenia) Iacovitti or grandfather Antonio Ramundi. My grandfather came to NY in late 1930's and my grandmother and mother came a few years after WWII ended. My sister, Anita, and I now live with our families in a suburb of Philadelphia. God Bless!
