Monday, October 18, 2004 at 19:52:20 (CDT)I am researching my grandmother and grandfather, who both emigrated to the USA in the early 1900's. They were both born in towns that were part of Abruzzo (when they were born) however their towns are actually located in Molise now that Abruzzo was seperated. My grandmother with the name of Maria Mignogni was born in a town called Arriccia (provincia di Isernia and my grandfather was born in Campobasso his name was Nichola Santopolo. I believe that one of my grandfather's brothers went to Argentina and died there from appendicitis. My grandfather's mother died when he was very young and his father remarried when my grandfather was still young. My grandparents both emigrated to Philadelphia, Pa, and met and married in the Italian community there. They had 4 daughters and 1 son. I have not been able to find any information on them. If anyone thinks they have any info on them, please e-mail. Io parlo Italiano. e-mail me at: viacelano YAHOOdotCOM
