  2. Ciao! I am Donna Ann D’Amico Morrison, and I live near Pittsburgh, PA USA.

    My grandparents lived in Castel di Sangro (Attilio D’amico and Maria Casacchia D’Amico). Birthdates: 1882 and 1883.

    I am interested in researching their birth and marriage records, all in Castel di Sangro. I do not know which church they attended.

    They emigrated to the U.S. in 1913. Grandfather D’Amico make several trips before that time, but the last time, Italo and Irma were with him, his son and daughter in 1913.

    Does anyone have advice for me?
    Grazie!

  3. I am looking for any information about the family name Sabella. Specifically Nicola my great-grandfather. It is believed he and wife (Elisbetta?) and infant son (my grandfather) came from Castel di Sangro between 1899 and 1903 to America. My Grandfather was called James. His birth name may have been Placifico or Placico or Placido. One person said it may have been Vincenzo. Some in my family believe we are descendants of the ancient Sabines. I would like to come to Italy to research this but I need a starting point. Any help would greatly appreciated.

    1. Dear Donald,
      My maiden name is Sabelli. My grandparents came from Castel di Sangro and settled in Western Pennsylvania. There was a controversy in the family whether the name was spelled Sabella or Sabelli. I believe my dad had an Uncle Nick and a cousin named Jim who lived in Barnesboro, PA. My grandfather’s name was Angelo. I grew up in Gallitzin, PA. I had an uncle named Placido, who changed his name to Robert, so that could be a family name.
