I am hoping that someone might be able to help me search the history of my great grandfather, Angelo Tiberio, born in 1874 in Pietranico, Pescara, Italy. He was orphaned or adopted. Any history on his parents or his children would be greatly appreciated. Angelo Tiberio married my great-grandmother Giulia Elvira Di Persio on 21 Aug 1898 in Corvara, Pescara, Abruzzo, Italy. Children from this marriage were: i. Giuseppe Tiberio; ii. Angiolina Tiberio; iii. Giovanino Tiberio; iv. Marietta Tiberio; v. Domenico Tiberio; vi. Rubina Tiberio, who was born on 22 Sep 1906 in Corvara, Pescara, Abruzzo, Italy2 and died on 14 Sep 1979 in Popoli, Pescara, Italy aged 72.
Giulia Elvira Di Persio, daughter of Antonino Di Persio and Angela Maria Di Giacomo, was born on 26 Jan 1876 in Corvara, Pescara, Abruzzo, Italy.

My grandfather was born Adario Enrico DiRupo near or in Pescara about 1898-1900 and came to America where his brother lived in New Jersey, Netcong area. His brother was Paul and he also had a sister here named Faustina. He married Ida Lucciani who was born in Rome but also moved to america and lived in New Jersey who had an older sister named Florance that was married to his brother Paul. All but Dario returned to Italy for visits and I have pictures of an old stone house where he was born, a small vineyard and pond are also in the pictures. Please e-mail or write me if you know of them or remaining family-- Thank-you!

I visited Vinchiaturo in October of 1999 with my wife, who is now recently deceased. I am 80 years old. I was taken back by how much it reminded me of where my father eventually took up residence, later in life, in the wine country north of San Francisco, California. Reading the above text, I was surprised that my surname of Pistilli did not yet appear in the contributions since, when we visited the local cemetery, we counted no fewer that 100 Pistilli names on the tombstones. I do not speak Italian but would be happy to go to school to learn the language if I could be assured that I would meet a close decendant of my father's parents. I would then look forward to returning to Italy to spend time in my father's hometown. Thank you for your input.

I am trying to establish a connection to beato nunzio. my nonna concetta sulprizio was born in popoli, pescara in 1865. nunzio's father domenico was born in popoli in 1795. i need information from the 1700's which more than likely is in church records in popoli or l'aquila. i have nonna's and nunzio's ancestors direct back to about 1800. i can send copies of these records to anyone who is interested in trying to help. the records are also included in my published book: "arthur and rose", the caponi/mosca union - october 21,1915 - in search of my italian roots
by ernest s. caponi , p.e., ninth child - fifth son. i would be delighted to hear from someone
