My family is from Lettomanoppello, Aburzzo, Italy. My grandfathers birth name is Camillo DiLallo and he married Nicoletta Mancini, also from the same region in Italy.
They left Italy in early 1900's, like in 02 to 05. My mothers name is Ella DiLallo but I have stories it is shortened from Cinderella and she did change it later and was known as Cynthia Marie DiLallo.
I know I have aunts Phyllis, Mary, Antonette, Rose, Dee, Teresa, and Anne. I have met SOME of my cousins and would LOVE to meet the rest and get to know them.
Please contact me if this seems we may be related. Thank you.

My grandmother, Maria Centofante and grandfather, Bernardino Pacella were both born in Sulmona and came to the US to live in the early 1900's. They had 11 children and the first three were born in Sulmona, via 24 Borghetto. The three oldest children, Seraphina, Chiara and Vincenzo were born there.

I went to Sulmona for two days in late March and it was such a thrill to see their home and the charming little town they came from. A taxi driver told me that there are many Pacellas who live in that town.

I am looking for any relatives of Erminia Vitale Notarantonio who emigrated from Pescasseroli, Italy in 1904 to Buffalo, NY. She was born in 1888. Her father's name was Giovanni Vitale.
I am also looking for relatives of Simeone Notarantonio, also from Pescasseroli. He was born in 1882 and emigrated around 1903 to Buffalo, New York.
If you have any information on either of these two people, I would love to hear from you.
