Hello, I am trying to trace my family roots in Francavilla al Mare. My mother was born there on 17 february 1919. Her name was Carmela Anna Antonietta Terroni. She emigrated to Scotland UK in 1921. Her mother's name was Assunta Cermignani - who was born in Francavilla in 1897. I plan to visit the area & would be so happy if I could find the family home there if it still exists. Thank you if you can help.
