I am searching for any relatives of my grandparents Nicholas Bucciarelli and Genevieve Carusi Bucciarelli.Genevieve was the daughter of Guarino and Antoinette Beato Carusi. Nicholas was the youngest of 17 children and the only boy! Genevieve was born in 1908 in Casalbordino, Provincia DeChieti and I think Nicholas was from the same town and born about 1898. Nicholas came to America in 1927 and Genevieve joined him in 1930. They settled in Scranton in 1932, where their three children still live

Hi, my name is Kelly.. I'm responding to an post that was dated in 2002, from Antonette.. It was in regards to Guiseppe Marsinelli.. That was my great-grandfather's name.. My grandfather's name was William Marsinelli.. I know that my great-grandfather was living in Malden, Massachusetts when he came over from Italy, then Ellis Island.. I'm not sure of my great-grandmother's name.. She died when my grandfather was young. My grandfather was born, I believe 1914.. The post stated Guiseppe was born in 1883.. That sounds like it could be him.. I would love to hear from you.. Please, if you see this, post another ad?? Kelly :)

I am researching the following surnames: Guardiani, Dionisio, Cittinelli and Campagna.

Cesidio Guardiani & Francesca nee Dionisio
He born: abt. 1861 in Tocco Causauria, Abruzzi, Italy.
She born: abt. 1866 (I think the same place)
Does anyone have any information on the Dionisio family?
I found information stating that Cesidio's mother's maiden name was "Campagna"...anyone have any info on this family?
Marriage: Abt. 1887
1. John Eustachio: B. 21 May 1891 burial in Holy Cross Cem; Yeadon, PA
2. Maria: B. Abt 1891, Italy
3. Chiariana: B. Abt 1900, Italy
4. Adelina: B. Abt 1905, Italy

Son of Cesidio & Francesca
1. John Eustachio: B. 21 May 1891; D. 12 Mar 1947 Phila, PA
Married: Mary/Marie: Abt 1917
Mary Unknown B. Abt 1893 in Italy (maybe Sicily); D. 3 Aug 1953 with burial in Holy Cross Cem; Yeadon, PA
I found a census which showed a Rose Cittinelli as "mother in law". It is a "guess" that Mary/Marie's maiden name was Cittinelli...does anyone have information on Cittinelli family?
1. Joseph Cesidio: B. 3 Mar 1918; D. 31 May 1945 with burial in Holy Cross Cem; Yeadon, PA.
2. John Eustachio: B. Abt 1919 (still living)
3. Anna: B. Abt 1922; D. 26 Nov 1960 with burial in Holy Cross Cem; Yeadon, PA
son of John Eustachio-1891 & Mary/Marie 1. Joseph Cesidio Guardiani: B. 3 Mar 1918; D. 31 May 1945 with burial in Holy Cross Cem; Yeadon, PA.

Married: Rosemarie Reissman: 2 Aug 1941
Rosemarie B. 10 Dec 1923 in Germany (living) Rosemarie is the daughter of Max Emil & Katherine nee Wagner Reissmann. They immigrated to the U.S. in Nov 1927 and resided in PA.
Children: 1. Joseph Ronald: B. 1943 in PA (living)
2. Paul Steven: B. 1945 in PA (living)

Joseph Cesidio (1918) joined the Army in 10 Dec 1942 just after he married in Aug 1941. The tragic story is that he and several other soldiers were run over by a truck (drunk driver) and killed on Memorial Day, 31 May 1945.
I have been told that his wife was visiting her sister while Joseph and several of his buddies went to the movies. As they got off the bus, they were hit. Joseph's wife, Rosemarie, was 8 1/2 months pregnant with their second son when Joseph was killed. Rosemarie was so distraught, she remembers very little about this accident. I don't know where this accident happened; he lived in Philadelphia, PA but he may have been going to the movies "on base" as he was still in the Army. I have searched and searched for info on this tragic accident, but have had no luck.
Does anyone have any information on this Guardiani family from Italy?

I have just begun to research my father's family heritage. My Grandfather was born in Frisa and my grandmother born in Villamagna. I don't know what church they were baptized but am looking into it. My grandfather's name was Alphonso DiCamilla and my grandmother's name was Anoinette DeLuca. They both settled in Wilmington, Delaware in the early 1900's. If you know where I can get their birth certificates in these two towns please let me know. God Bless!

Great site, and kudos to the director. My grandfather [Silvino Donatucci] left Chieti in 1905 for America. Married [Concetta Masciavecchio], who I believe lived in Bucchianico and raised a large family who would love to hear from relatives living around the world. We are 4 generations now living and would like to swap stories...

Hello, I am looking for information on my Grandmother's family, we have very litte information and I'd like to fill in the family tree! My grandmother's maiden name was Biocco, the family was from Isola del Gran Sasso (sp?) and her parents must have come over to the US around 1912-1918??? They came through New York I believe, but eventually settled in the Philadelphia area. I know my grandmother's name at birth was Pasqualena (changed to Pauline) and she had a sister Marguerite (changed toMarge) and a brother, Nick (not sure what it was originally). I know almost nothing about my great-grandparents, and would like to know if anyone else is from this family. I do know my great-grandmother was a devout Catholic and never learned English -- in fact, one of the reasons we know so little about her is she practically disowned my Grandmother for marrying someone who was not Italian! It is my understanding that we still have relatives in the Abruzzi area. I can read (but not write) in Italian, so don't hesitate to respond if this is your language.
