My name is Pasquale Carestia and I found this web site very interesting. My parents came from a small town called San Vittorino, about 3 miles from Caramanico T. My parents came to settled in the U.S.A. in the 70’s. Since then I was always involved about my parents heritage and how lived compared to today. I visited Italy 3 times and I think that Italy is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I enjoy searching the internet about Caramanico, I wish I could find something about San Vittorino. I lot of the people from San Vittorino have came and settled in Joliet IL. We also built a club along with other people, called the American Italian Cultural Society www.italianclubaics.com. At this we continue our Italian traditions.

This message is for Elizabeth Nalesnik.
I answered your post from a year ago, and will enter info. here, as well, hoping you will find it.
My sister's Mother was Selma Pietrantonio, who married Giusseppe (Pep) Tagliente in Iron Mountain. Selma passed on when my sister was a young child.Also from Iron Mountain, the family Pietrantonio who moved to Eveleth , Minnesota.My cousin's Mother, Mary Pietrantonio, is from this family. She married my uncle, Ben Deluca, my Mother's brother.( I will contact her for more information.)The Eveleth branch, fathered by Dominick Pietrantonio: Elizabeth, Violet, Rose, Mary(my cousin's Mother),Joe and another son.They have all passed on. Dominick's sister, Mary Pietrantonio, married Tony Rainaldi, also in Eveleth.Mary and Tony have passed on. There are two children.
The Corsi and Valenti family are also connected, through marriage. Selma was connected to the Valenti family. My father's sister, Anina Tagliente, married a Corsi. They lived in Camden, N.J.That was the last time I saw her,in about 1950. There is one Corsi in Iron Mountain, left ,who is in her 80's. If she remembers anything, I will pass this info. on to you. I will wait to see if you get this and if it is helpful.My cousin, Margaret should have info on the Pietrantonio family, as well.
Don't give up your search. Recently, a gentleman saw my name, I kept my maiden name, in the college, (where I teach,) course book. Calling the college, we were put in touch. Our grandfather's were brothers!! His Mother was a Tagliente! We are now sharing family information, trying to fill in the blanks. Blessings,

I also know that there is a branch in Pescara, ITALY (my grandfather - Severio) plus his brother's family which is located further north up the coast - this brother was raised by another family since the 2 boys were orphaned at the tender ages of 10 and 11 years of age.(mother died, father disappeared).
I know there must be someone out there who knows this family - there's really not many of us out there. Any clues I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Need information about Angelina Trozzi who died in Italty before 1920 and was married to Frank Amaranto in Krebs, Oklahoma, USA in December 1900.
Frank came to the United States approximately three to four times. Have found him on Ellis Island Records, but no record of Angelina Trozzi coming over.

My father was Caesar Palmiro Evangelista (a.k.a. Caesar Palmiro Batistella), he was born in Castelvecchio, March 23,1902. He came to the U.S. in 1910 with his mother, Carmella Evangelista(her maiden name). She had married a Batistella(not sure of correct spelling),who came to the U.S.with their son and was supposed to send for her and their daughter Grace. Bastistella never did send for them. Carmela later lived with a tailor in Castelveccho. He fathered my dad.
The tailor was going to move to Pescara and would take his son, Caesar,and Carmela but not Grace. Carmela said,take all or none. The tailor left by himself.
Alesondro(sp.?) Vespa sent for Carmela to take care of his three children when her sister died in child birth.That is why Carmela and Caesar came to Iron Mountain, Michigan in 1910.
When Caesar grew up, he anglicized Evangelista to Evance.
P.S.:I don't remember Grace's first name.It may be Maria.She married Tony Gazza, also from Castelvecchio, before coming to the U.S.
I think this is the place where my father was born: Castelvecchio Calvisio,
Province of L'Aquila

I am just starting to research my geneology, and was hoping to connect with others researching this name. We come from the city of Capitignano. My Grandfather August came to the United States as a little boy in the 1910's with his father and brother Julie...his father returned to Italy and the two boys settled in Ohio...other names from this city in my family tree are Muzzi and I think perhaps Cuccaro.

of a michael galante who immigrated to america around 1913, leaving behind brothers and possibly a sister in vasto?
if you can help connect the dots please e-mail me!
you see my 90 year old grandmother would like to know more about her real father michael as he was killed soon after arriving in usa.
she was told of her father's brothers who still lived in vasto, and
it would make her feel reconnected to her father in her advaced years!

This is a great website! I will take a boat to
Italy to sign the will that is left for my mother Mirta. In the year
1890 in Sicily my nona had a Uncle who was very ill in the hospital
and there were Bars of gold left for my Grandma "MariaElena" he said
in Quotes"I want MariaElena to have the Bars of gold that I have for
her but please hurry and sign to document from the Italien Government
that was sent to Buenos Aires in the 1920s. He lived in a Castle with
many servants and many many Bars of gold in his Chest. Which is worth
now trillions. I would like to know what happened to the Document because I will personally fly or take a boat to Italy and find the
truth about what the Italien Government did with the Castle and the
bars of gold.

(Sacchini)Natale.I know that my greatgrandmother left Italy with my Pop-pop & his 2 sisters ,Anna & Christina in 1910.Flaviano had come to the United States before them .My pop-pop & his family came to Ellis Island so I have some facts about them.Pasquarosa was 33yrs.old and the ship manifest says that their place of residence was Mosciano,Italy and I am assuming that the manifest was correct.My family & I are interested in taking our father to Italy and would love any information on our family roots.When my Pop-pop came to America they changed the spelling of our name to Natalie on my Dad's birth certificate,but on my Pop-pop's IT IS NATALE.I look forward to hearing from anyone with any information .Thank you & God Bless

My father and his family camr from Naples. His name was Rusciano. My paternal grandfather's first name was Filippo.He also arrived in the early 1900's.
My mother, aunts uncles grandparents and sisters have all visited their respective villages. Even my oldest son has been there. My daughter and the Litergical Choir from St.Thomas College were in the Vatican for the Pope's Midnight Mass, 2000, to sing. She met a nun whose last name was Rusciano.The sister was in charge of the vestments for the Midnight Mass.
Me, mostly I have worked to support the family.I have read many of the notes and the discriptions of the great festival meals brings back many memories.
