My name is Philip Bartholomeo. I am the son of John Bartholomeo and the Grandson of Filippo Di Bartolomeo and Laura Di Bonaventura. Both were born in Bellante, Filippo in 1892 and Laura in 1897. Laura was born in Bellante on December 1, 1898. Laura is the daughter of Saverio and Sanità Maria. I am looking for any information on my grandparents, and also to find out if I have any distant relatives still living in Italy. i think it would be wonderful to connect. Feel free to drop me a note.

My grandfather, Silvio Domenic Ciancarelli, was from Scanno - not far from Villetta Barrea. In the USA he married a desendent of the Maddamma's - Ida Di Nunzio - whose mother was Cristini Maddamma Di Nunzio and immigrated to the USA in 1901 from Villetta Barrea after her husband (Luigi) died in 1900. They had three childern - Ida, Quinton and Angelo. I would like to see if there was a connection between the families in Italy since the villages are only ten miles apart or so. Cristini remarried a Jesse Tolomeo and they had three childern - Mary, Frank and ??. Any info is welcomed.

I am researching my family tree. My great grandparents were born in Matrice. My grandfathers name was pasquale sivillo and my grandmothers name was giovanna sbrocco. I would be happy to hear from anyone who might have info on either of them. They were born in the late 1800's.
