Saturday, February 21, 2004 at 21:27:38 (CST)Ciao: I am trying to find where my grandfather came from. I believe it is in the Abruzzo/Agnone region. He married Elvira Recanatini. He emigrated to Ameica between 1850 to 1890. His name is Lorenzo DiMenna. I am told by trade he was a barber. When he came to America he had children: Inez, Ernest, Ronald, Rene, Edward (my father), and Matilda. I will be traveling in April to that region and would like to look up any living relatives. I lean toward believing he may have come from Agnone because there are familiar names such as Lorenzo, Michele, Raffaele and Lucia, living now in Agnone. I would appreciate any information you can give me. Many thanks.

Hi! I am interested in obtaining information on my family history. I would like to connect with relatives living in Miranda, Italy or elsewhere. My grandfather was Charles Northen (Narducci). He and his brother Dominic came to Canada around 1890. They settled on Cape Breton Island and worked in a steel mill in Sydney. From there Dominic moved to Philadelphia, Penn. for some time and later moved back to Italy. My grandfather's name was changed to Northen when he moved to Canada. If anyone has any information regarding the Narducci family in Miranda, Italy I would appreciate hearing about them. Thank you.
