We have relatives in the area around Civitaquana. My husband's family are descended from Giuseppe DiBerto, born 1883. We love to visit the area but never seem to have enough to time to research our family history to learn more.

Would love to hear from anyone who is a descendent from Pettorano sul Gizio. From my research in my own family, Tecca, Panza, Ferrelli, Trombetta, etc. etc. it seems like we are all related if we get back far enough in history.
