My grandfather Umberto Ferrone left for the USA when my dad Everino and uncle Ribella (who have both passed away now) were 2 and 5 years old respectively. We have been told that granddad started a family in the US and we have patchy information about them. Our family comes from Pianella and very much like to know about possible links to other Ferrones in the US. I stress that we do not seek to impose on the family however if you are related and wish to establish contact I and my brothers and sisters will be happy to get to know you. With love Livio

Looking for information on the families of Antonio Aucelli (or Angelli or Ancelli), married to Braca, Maria Cresceza di Giuseppi, and their daughters Nicolangela (born 22 May 1870) and Nicoline Maria Teresa (born 3 December 1872). They emigrated from Campochiaro in 1888 and settled in Manhatten, New York City. Nicolangela married Luigi Mastriano (from Avellino) in 1888 and moved to the Bronx, New York City in 1901. Nicolina Teresa married Pasquale Picciano (also from Campochiaro) in 1890 and later moved to Endicott, New York . Are there any relatives of this family still in the Campobasso area? (I am the great grandaughter of Nicolangela). Thanks!

Hi. My cousins & I have been trying to research the Tano line of our family. We really haven't had any luck in here in the U.S. and the family will not offer any information. Our grandfather was Fred Tano, but he died in 1951, before we were born. We believe his father may have been Nicola Tano, who came to the United States in the early 1900's from Atessa, Italy. A Luzio Tano may also be related. If anyone can help us, we would greatly appreciate it. We don't know what the big family secret is, but we feel we have a right to know. Thank you.

Help...I am looking for any information about my grandfather, born in 1887 in Onna, Aquila, Italy. He left around 1914 and return to Italy to fight in W.W.I. After the war he married Henrietta Pulucci and had a daughter Maria Annunzia Camardese, then came back to America around 1921 via Ellis island. He had a sister who was a nun...sister Maria Sarafina of the divine order of Beata Sant'Antonia, Aquila, Italy. He also had three brothers Antonio, Saverino, Elia. They all came to America. He came through via Ellis island and settled in Philadelphia. We would be grateful for any information pertaining to Amedio Camardese. *note: I was told that the family name is engraved somewhere in the town square. On a fountain? Maybe?

He died at the age of 28 in 1909, so the family does nor know alot about the family because my Great-Grandmother remarried. I know this was a common name in that town.
