I am hoping to learn more about my ancestry. My great-grandparents (last name Giosa) left Vasto in the late 1800s and arrived in Philadelphia. From there, their family moved to New York City and then to Rhode Island where my grandfather changed our last name to George. Any knowledge of the Giosa family would be appreciated.

Hi, I would really like to trace a lady called Alison De Paolo or De Paola, whose last known address was Via del Gallo No 14, Montecatini Terme 15016. A sibling of hers based here in Stirlingshire would really like to contact her. Her maiden name was Rushbrooke. 2 Letters have been sent to the above address, however as there has been no reply, we have to assume that she no longer resides there.
I work for the British Red Cross, unfortunately our Tracing and Messaging service is restricted to those who have lost contact through Natural Disasters, War etc, I am doing this as a courtesy to a fellow human being and in my own time, so any help I can get would be really appreciated.
I apologise if I have hijacked this site and my request doesnt quite fit your usual requests, if you could signpost me to another person/site who might be of help that would be great. Thanking you in anticipation, Hazel Jeffey

Hello: I am trying to locqte the Barlaam Family om Castiglione MerrerRaimondo, Teramo, Abruzzo. My Grandfather- Vincenzo Barlaam and his wife Lucia- had two children- Adalgisa and Donato. Vincenzo came to the United States and settled in Philadelphia in 1912. His wife and children came to the United States in 1913. Upon arrival in New York in 1913 Lucia and the two children were held in New York because the youngest child (Donato) was ill and subsequently died (He had taken ill on the ship). Lucia and the remaining child (Adalgisa-my mother) arrived in Philadelphia and settled in the West Philadelphia section of Overbrook. If there are any residents of Castiglione Messer Raimondo with the surname of Barlaam, please contact me.

For Daniela Lucciantonio - My grandfather and his family migrated to the US and Canada from Navelli in the 1920’s and we have just started some research. My grandfathers name was Peter (Pietro) Lucciantonio who was born in 1893. hE had three siblings Thomas (ended up in the US in Ohio and his sons are still there), Paul remained in Italy (Paolo) and Anne (don’t know what happened to Anne. My Father Julius, (Giulio) who came to the US with Peter in 1931 was 9 at the time. he told me recently that he had returned to Italy during WWII and went back to Navelli to see family. He said he met with Paul and at the time he had a small boy whom he could not remember the name. He also said he thought Paul had 3 daughter who he believed moved to Venezuela I wonder if there is the connection.
When they came to the US the name was changed to Lucien and the cousins that went to Canada maintained Lucciantonio. I believe Peters dad (my great grandfather) was Joseph who stayed in Canada with his wife was Anne.

My fathers name was Feliz Henriquez. He took a baby photo of me when I was born, and put it in his wallet. When he left my mother to go back to his wife and children. He never returned. His best friend was named, Tony Cabaciera?(sp), who currently resides in Toronto with his family, around Dovercourt/Bloor area. It would be easy to ask him of my father if he wasn't so horrible to my sister (who he abandoned) and when she called him after 30 plus years, he refused to speak to (it's his loss, not hers).

I know my biological father was married, and had kids, who I assume to be older than I currently am, as they existed before my birth. I was told that my father passed away roughly 1990 something, and is believed to be buried in the Prospect Cemetary at St. Clair Ave W (according to Tony, who could be lying thru his teeth), but so far, I have found no record. I am just curious as to if his children are anything like me, if they knew of my existence, and if anyone ever found that photo.
