My name is Gabriel Pinciotti and my parents are from Castel Castagna, Italy from the providence of Abbruzi. My fathers name was Franco Pinciotti and my mothers name was Almarinda Montini Pinciotti. They left Italy in 1920 to go to the United States. They have since passed away and wonder if there are any relatives living in Italy or the United States. Would love to hear from you. Viva Italia.

Hi... I'm trying to find information about my ancestors in Italy. My Great Grandfather who's name was Orazio Nani was born either in Siracusa (Syracuse) or Ragusa. Both cities from southern Sicily. I believe by limited sources of investagation of my own that he was born in Ragusa in the late 1800 (very probable in 1882). At that time Ragusa a very small rural town had probabaly limited or any record keeping of births. I know by words of my Grandmother and deteriorated but very valuable documents that he had lived in Siracusa for many years before moving to Argentina but not certain if born their since my Grandmother mentions to me that he many times would name Ragusa. I would appreciate deeply any information even the simplest regarding with my research. Thank You.

Searching for my roots: DE MARCO family
I'm searching for my family roots. My grandfather, Nunzio De Marco, emigrated to Brazil when he was a kid. As his father Nicola De Marco was already dead, he went to Brazil with his mother, Elisabetta De Fecci (De Felice) and his stepfather, Giuseppe De Angelis, along with other sisters and brothers (Vittoria De Marco, Guerino De Marco, Carmine De Angelis, Pascoale De Angelis). He was born in 1895, somewhere in Abruzzo. As he died before I was born, I am trying to find out if I still have some relatives (also in the De Angelis family) and where they live today. If anybody knows, please contact me. Thank you very much. Tante grazie!

Fun site to browse around in. I have found many listings for D'Addario in Abruzzo but do not know exactly where my family came from. Does anyone have any history on the D'Addario family name that may lead me in the right direction? Any links to sites that may help me? Any help would be great. Thanks a ton.
