I am responding to Guido who is looking to find other Tollis families from Italy. My father, Vincenzo Tollis was born in Sora, Frosinone Italy in 1931. His father, also named Vincenzo was born in the same town in 1896 and his grandfather as well as far as he knows. We believe that the origin of the name is Irish. There is a Thomas Tollis of 1771 who was also a stone mason and living in England (but of Irish descent). I am looking as well to find out more...to verify these facts. Please let me know if you find out anything new as well.

My grandfather Antonio Piccolo and my grandmother Maria Teti came to America in early 1900's. He was born in 1875 in Torricello Pigligna area. I understand he was not from the city but outskirts of the town. We would like to get more family history if possible. The original name was probably Piccoli, according to a cousin.

Michael Misero, found you on Abruzzo2000. Your great-grandfather had the same name, Pietro Misero, as my uncle, who also came from Farindola. I really don't know how this thing works, but I do want to get in touch with you. If we are related, you had several relatives that lived in Delaware County. My mother, Filomena, was a Misero. We may be cousins, if so I have two brothers living not too far from you. If you get this message, e-mail me and I'll give you a complete rundown of the Misero side of the family as I know it. Hope you get this.

Looking for relative of the Giacinto Buti and Ernestina Firmani Family. Giacinto came from L'Aquila and Ernestina came from Chieti.
They were married August 1912, and immigrated to the USA in 1914.
Ernestina had a sister named Dora Caramaschi, and brothers Ugo and Oreste Firmani who I believed remained in Italy.
