My grandmother's name was Carmella Mary Tuzzolo and then Toarello and wound up with Frank DiFillipo. I was always told she came from Potenza but on my Dad's birth certificate it said the last place she lived was Alfedena, italy. I do know my grandfather DiFillipo was born in Pomarico. Can any one help me find this connection to my family? It would be greatly appreciated.

My name is Phyllis (Marcocci) Omenson and I live in New Jersey. I am looking for information about my parents Angelo Marcocc(born 5/9/1905) and Lena (D'Angelo) Marcocci. My Father was from Filetto (Camarda)and he came to Dudley, PA in March, 1921. His Dad was Gaudio Marcocci and his Mom was Filomena (maiden name may have been Morrelli). She died in childbirth and my Dad was raised by the woman who nursed him, Margherita (Ciampa) Marcocci, whom Gaudio married later in Italy. My Dad and his step-mother emigrated to the USA together in 1921. I was raised in Dudley, PA with these grandparents and my parents along with a brother and two sisters. I heard many stories about the Abruzzi region from my grandparents and my Dad, but they are now deceased. I am trying to complete a family tree, but I need more information on my paternal side. If anyone can contribute any information, please forward it to me. Grazie.
