I am looking for anyone from the Dirico family still residing in Italy. I visited my grandfather's hometown of San Valentino. There was a beautiful church on top of the city with twin towers. Any information about San Valentino or the Dirico's I would greatly appreciate it.

I am looking for relatives from Castel di Ieri or Gagliano Aterno. My grandfather was Luciano diVirgilio, son of Giuseppe and Maria Domenica Fabrizi, born in 1883. I believe he was an only child. My grandmother was Damiana Giuseppina Anna Giorgi, daughter of Francesco Paolo and Mariana Aloisantoni born in 1897. She had many brothers and sisters and her father was from Gagliano Aterno originally but settled in Castel di Ieri. We visited there recently and loved it. We were only there for one day, but had an interpreter and took a walking tour. I would love to find a cousin of my grandfather or a sibling of my grandmother (or by now, a descendant). Please contact me if you have any information.
