  1. Both of my parents were born in L’Aquila. I remember hearing names of places like Montereale and Castello and San Giovanni Paganica. I am having a hard time finding these places exactly and determining which place was the birthplace of my parents. I am not even sure if both parents were born in the same village. I am also not sure if my grandparents were born in the same village. The names in question are : paternal grandparents Emidio Trocchi and his wife Matilde Salvatore My other grandparents were Dosolina (Tusolina) Nanni and her husband Francesco Nanni (they had the same last name!!) Can anyone give me some information on this. I am anxious to visit their birth places if possible. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer me.

    1. Hi, emidio is my great great uncle. My father was born, and grew up, in his house. We are distant cousins. Email me if you’d like to learn more
