  1. I am second generation Italian living in USA. My father Alfred Pellegrini was born in New York in 1924. His father was born in Abruzzo, we believe Fagnano Alto, around 1885. His American name was “John” Pellegrini. His wife was probably born in same area and was named Clarinda Rugierre. I am looking to find more information on my grandparents and their preceding history. Can you help?

    Thank you

    1. Dear Alan, of course we can help with your research. I sent you some information by email. Thank you for the comment.

  2. My father Domenico Antonio Gabriele Crisi and his parents, etc. were born, baptized, and lived in Ripa Fagnano Alto. They attended St. Vittorino Church. His father — my grandfather — was Benedetto Crisi who married Annantonia Bologna. My uncle Mariano (Mario) Crisi married Francesca Pompeani. My aunt Cesidia Crisi married Joachim Fattore. Other paesani from village of Ripa: Legge, Leli, Troiani. I have visited L’Aquila and Ripa and attended St. Vittorina. My nephew — Mario Crisi’s son — lived and worked with his wife in L’Aquila until the terrible earthquake in 2009. I have not heard from him since the earthquake. I understand he and his wife evacuated to Ripa. Another relative of mine is Cesare Fattore.

  3. My grandfather, Giuseppe Catignani born in July 1885 was from Fagnano Alto and migrated to New York about 1905. His parents were Nunzio Catignani and Francesca Lozzi. Giuseppe’s American name became Joseph Catigano. We are hoping to learn anything about Giuseppe and his family history. I want to see if it is possible to locate his birth and or baptismal certificate. Please let me know if you can help. Thank you, Angela Catigano [email protected]
