Del Duca/Di Iorio/ Di Narda/ Coladonato/ Carrocia
Salve. My name is Anna Marie Del Duca and I am interested in contacting potential relatives here in the US and in Abruzzi. My paternal grandfather, Francisco Del Duca, was born in December of 1891 to Rocco (Dominco) Del Duca and Caterina Di Narda in Taranta Peligna. My paternal grandmother, Maria Di Iorio Del Duca was born April 11, 1901 to Tommaso Di Iorio and Francesca Colonato. My grandmother had one nephew in Taranta, as of the 1980's, by the name of Orlando Caroccia. Any assistance in finding family members would be greatly appreciated.

I am searching for anyone in the DeRitis family from Philadelphia, Penna and Easton Penna. I understand that for many years in the summer the family get together for a picnic in Easton. I am the widow of John Anthony DeRitis, 1988; his father John Bruno DeRitis, married to Helen Jean Kern; grandfather Antonio DeRitis.
Antonio was married to Elvira. Elvira came to this country in early 19th century, from Fugji in Italy. Any family members who lived in Easton Penna would love to hear from you. John DeRitis' grandfather was a tailor in Easton before moving to Philadelphia.

I was born in Navelli, Prov. of Aquila, Region of Abbruzzo in 1938 to Teresa Bonifacio (D"Attilio) and Agostino Bonifacio. I was their only child. We emigrated to Canada in November of 1948 and lived in Northern Ontario (Schumacher). My parents continued to live there for some years, but I enlisted in the Canadian Army artillery branch and served 35 years, retiring with the rank of captain. I soldiered in many places all over Europe and the Middle East as well as many locations in Canada over the years.
My parents are both deceased now and I live in retirement with my wife Joan in Wasaga Beach, Ontario, Canada. I would be extremely pleased to hear from anyone who recognizes my family name and is able to give me any family information or just to communicate with me. Like many others, I never took advantage at the time to ask my parents about our families, subsequently much information has been lost to me.
You have a great website and I avidly read all entries as they appear. Keep up the good work and remember there are only two types of Italians.....Those who are, and those who wish they were! Ciao
