Sat Sep 12 07:27:34 1998Dear Eugene,
this website is shared by a commercial company, Abruzzo2000, and a free association, Abruzzo World Club, which has mainly cultural aims. So if your comment is directed to Abruzzo2000, of course we are on the web to sell goods and services. If you are instead worried about the seriousness of Abruzzo World Club, we are sorry about that and hope that with time your prejudice will disappear. By following this link, you can have a look at the Association's Statute and judge by yourself. The Site's Webmaster
Thu Sep 10 16:13:25 1998Looks like another money making scheme. Too many associations out there.

Wed Sep 9 11:29:24 1998You have a wonderful Web site and are to be congratulated for your efforts. I was very happy to know
that your Abruzzo site exists and will place a link to it in my
Home page located at:
My Home page has many links to various Abruzzo sites
that I felt might be of interest to those Abruzzese who
might want to discover their roots. If you have a site that
you feel might be of interest to Abruzzese around the world and to students
of Abruzzo please feel free to send an email with the URL
My relatives are originally from the province of
Teramo. Family names are Blasiotti, Romani, Recheutti.
I have relatives that I am aware of living in and around
Giulianova and Contraguerra. I would recommend anyone
to visit Abruzzo for a wonderful vacation filled with nice
people, great food, and lots of fabulous scenery. I have
been there several times and have always enjoyed my
stay in addition to coming away refreshed.

Fri Sep 4 16:31:47 1998Hello! My wife's family Colella lives in San Benedetto in Perillis,
a tiny village above Popoli. We visit almost every year and have a great
time there. I was able to trace Dina's geneology back through her parents
(Benedetto Colella and Pasqualina Marini) by examining church statistical
records that are kept by a local historian. The Colella side went back 14
generations to 1612!!! Some of the other sunames are Faiella, Fontana
and Patrizio from this village.

Thu Sep 3 13:17:35 1998Great idea for a website. We just came back from Italy a few weeks ago. Before we left, we requested via our travel agent, some tourist information from the Italian Tourist Board. The Italian Tourist Board did not bother to answer our request. Maybe your website could provide tourist information for those of us that travel to Abruzzi.

Thu, 03 Sep 1998 04:44:59 +000My wife's parents and grandparents came from Pettorano Sul Gizio (Serafini, Suffoletta). There are many people in the Hamilton Ontario area that were born in Pettorano. I am attempting to build a family tree from information received from my wife's relatives. Perhaps I can access others with information that will enhance what I already have.
