My mother Cucci Genesia, 96 years old born like me in Poggio Picenze, is sister of Cucci Mario, Cucci Angelo, Cucci Ermando ed Cucci Elpidio and that family was "famiglia Pittore". Un abbraccio a tutti i paesani!

I'm looking to find ancestors in Roccacinquemiglia. In the early 1900's, Giovanni Loiacono and brother Hugo immigrated to US to meet with sister Marietta, who had married Nicola Santucci and moved to Seattle, Washington. I am in touch with descendants of all three siblings. Their father was Antonio Loiacono and their mother was his second wife, Clotilda Campea. We know they were from or were born in Castel del Sangro. For a while the siblings were in touch with their three Italian siblings, but the connection has been lost for several years now. Any information would be appreciated.

To Isabela from Brasil:. I have been trying to contact you and answer your question but your email does not go through. The Liberatoscioli Family originated from Chieti (Abruzzi) Italy. In the early 1900's some moved to Philadelphia, PA and others to South America.

My maternal Grandparents, Sebastian and Carmela Perna, immigrated to the US from Petoranello and settled in Trenton, New Jersey, where they raised 12 children (6 boys & 6 girls). In 1971 and 1972, I visited Petoranello and visted the Church where my Grandfather was baptized in 1892 (saw the Church records that listed his name) and the house that he grew up in. His sister-in-law, Rosa, was 92 years old and living in it. She passed away 2 years later.
My paternal Grandparents, Raphael and Graziella Zacchini, imigrated to the US from Frosinone. My Grandfather died in the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918. My Grandmother remarried Federico Bindi who had imigrated from Teramo.
I lived in Naples, Italy from 1970 until 1973 and in Vicenza, Italy from 1975 to 1981, and from 1982 until 1986. I have lived in Vicenza since 1989.

I am trying to locate relatives with the last name of Scarano. My grandmother's maiden name was Vienna Scarano, Vienna's mothers first name was Maria, she married Guiseppe Fortunato Franceschini, two male children were born named Paris. One died at about 2 yrs, the other at birth. Guiseppe Franceschini was born in France, she left Italy sometime around 1913, 1914 and travelled to Paris on her way to America. I have been trying for a long time to locate anyone that may help to find living relatives. I believe she had relatives with the last name of Mosca. Vienna was born 1888, Aquila, Popoli. Thank you.
