I am searching for any information regarding my family in Rocca San Giovanni Italy. My grandfather came to Canada in 1905 and due to a mistake at Ellis Island they changed the spelling from Cece to Ceci. I am planning a trip in July of 2008 and would like to make contact.

I am just beginning to learn a bit about my family and would be interested in communicating with anyone who knows about the Forchetti family. I believe my greatgrandmother was Arrina Caulo who married Arturo Forchetti.

Looking to find relatives in Brazil. My great grandmother Anna DiFrancesco had a sister named Mariangiola (in Brazil Mariangela) DiFrancesco who was married to Pasquale DiFrancesco (same name) in the year 1900 in Montazzoli. They emigrated to Sao Paulo, Brazil in the 1920's I believe, and the 3 children I know of are Concetta, Felice (Felico), and Vincenzo (Vicente). I know that one went to Vitoria, Brazil (Espirto Santo state). Please email me if you know of them or related. Thank you.

Ciao, I am ever grateful that you keep this web site going. I am an Italian American with family from Fallo, Chieti, Abruzzo. I had the wonderful pleasure to visit my home village in 2003 during the patron saint's festival in early August. I met relatives from around the world who came to celebrate and visit the home country. One again I have a new email address so I am sending this message in order to show this new address. Buon Natale, everyone. Love,

I have a new e mail since orginally signing a year ago. I am looking for decendats of Carmen, Dominic, and Nick Baccaro who came to the U.S. from Roccomandolfi in the late teens or ealy 20's. Dominic and Nick settled in Houston but Carmine returned to Italy after a short stay. Also interested in my grandmother's family who also were from Roccomandolfi. My great grandfather Libero De Andrea and his daughter Lucia (my grandmother) came to America around 1920 as well. Any information on surviving decendants of the Baccaro's or the De Andrea's would be appreciated.

Stimati amici, volesse sapere se in Orsogna vive alcuno con cognome Sanfelice. Mio bisnonno Rocco arrivò dall'Argentina da lì in 1910 sposato con Conzecia Pace nata il 29-01-1880 e con due figli, credo che uno rimase in Orsogna e si chiamava Giuseppe nato il 27-06-1901. Capisco che lì vivono molti di cognome Pace e sicuramente qualcuno potrà aiutarmi. Dovrebbe contattarlo per continuare con lo studio delle mie radici. Saluti a tutti

I would like to try to locate children and grandchildren to get family information about the Sposato and Sposetta family from Letonia, Ohio area. I know that my grandparents came to the USA while they were in their teens and settled in Ohio. My Dad is their only living child now and he has not stayed in contact with his family much over the years. Many of the brothers were in the military and then worked at government jobs after that. My grandfathers name was Joseph Sposato and his wife was Theresa Jeswald. Because the postman had trouble with so many people with the same name, some of the family changed the spelling of the last name to Sposetta.
Thank you for any information. My Dad is very ill now and it would be for both of us to find out some information about the family.
