Ciao a tutti... My name is Eustachio Anthony Smarrelli. My grand father was Eustachio Smarrelli born March 9, 1885, andhad 2 sons Antonio( my father) and John.I understand the family homestead is still in Pescara and is visited by my uncle John and his family. My brother is planning a trip to Italy in April and would like to visit our family home..if anyone has any imformation, or an address, we would be very appreciative. Thank you very much and a Happy, Prosperous New Year to all.
I was born in Furci Siculo but immigrated with my mother Maria, sister Carmela and brother Sebastiano to Vancouver, B.C. in 1953. My mother was born in Piedimonte Etneo, Catania in 1910, she had a sister living in California, USA. her daughter-in-law was Graziella born in Roccolumera and married Sebastiano Russo from USA. if anyone has any information on the family Russo (there is also another brother and sister) they owned a nursery I believe in Santa Barbara, USA. I would like have some news.

I am Dennis Taricani, grandson of Giovanni (John) Taricani. My grandfather left Vicoli Italy in 1913 to come to the USA. I will visit Vicoli and Pescara this summer. I am hoping to find some distant family to meet, break bread, and share a glass of wine with. any info on Taricani family would be helpful. Please forward to my email. Thank you
