Sat, Feb 28, 2009 at 11:32 PMCari amici, Il mio nonno era un soldato nel Calvery in parte posteriore di Aquila verso la fine di 1800' s. Stavo domandando se ci è dell'informazione sulla lima nella città che potrei potere verificarmi. Qualsiasi organizzazione là che potrebbe fare una ricerca ed individuare il " papers" di scarico; appartenendo a lui, se possibile? Il suo nome è stato registrato (credo) come: Bernardino Battistella (o Battestilli) non absoultely sure su quello. Sarebbe circa 1880-99. Grazie per tutta l'informazione. I non parlo molto italiano ma ho un traduttore di Babelfish!

Mon, Feb 16, 2009 at 10:56 PMMy father was Michael Angelo Sciullo, born in Ateleta, province of Abruzzo, Italy, in 1998.My grandfather was Giachino Sciullo. My father entered the USA through the port of Philadelphia, accompanied by his sister, Roselina. Michael was a tailor. He settled in the Philadelphia area at first, then moved to Vineland, NJ, to Atlantic City, NJ, and died in Miami FL. Siblings of Michael are Roselina, Arcangelo, Philomena, and two other sisters whose names are unknown to me. I am aware of the marriages and offspring of Arcangelo and of Philomena. Roselina (married name believed to be DiSanto) settled in or near Harrisburg, PA. Children are Cleopatra, Antonio, Diana, Angelica, Ida, Drusina, and Benito. As to the unnamed sisters, one is known to have settled in or around Pittsburgh, PA, and the other in a South American country, possibly Argentina. I would like to hear from anyone who can confirm that Roselina's married nane is DiSanto, and can furnish any information about the other two sisters.

Sun, Feb 15, 2009 at 5:56 PMHello...My name is Raymond Scarazzo. My surname was originally spelled "Scarazza". For some time I have pursued a Scarazza/Scarazzo genealogy. To date I have over 500 people in 9 generations in the USA and Italy. Most of the US decendants hail from Abruzzo. My grandfather, Nicholas/Nicola and his family came from Tortoreto. Many of the family members come from the following Italian towns: Tortoreto, Mosciano Sant Angelo, Teramo, Civitella del Tronto, Sant' Egidio alla Vibrata and others. I I believe the surname spelling may have other variations here in the US. Contact me via email if you have an interest, maybe we can help each other. I wish everyone "good luck" in their pursuit of their families. It takes a lot of time and patience, but the rewards are great! Ciao!

My mother IRIDE MATTICOLI (parents ANTONIO MATTICOLI and ANGELINA BOLOGNINI) and my father GIOVANNI DE TOMMASIS. My father was given the "adopted" name of DE TOMMASIS.

If there are any relatives of either the MATTICOI, BOLOGNINI OR TIRABASSI families, I would like to contact you.
