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.

My father's family are from Abruzzi. Our last name is Nocito. My grandfather, Giuseppi was born in 1870 and married my grandmother, Rosina Poliseno born I on May 24, 1896. I don't know when my grandfather came to America but my grandmother came in 1907 with her parents and brother Michael, and baby brother Antonio and adopted sister Madelina.. They were my great grandfather, Giuseppi Poliseno born in 1869 and my great grandmother, Irena Patacca born in 1876. I wish I knew the village or area where my Grandfather lived because I have a friend who wears a picture of her husband on her necklace who is the spitting image of my father. He too was from Abruzzi. If someone knows my family members who are descendants of these people, I would love to know how to contact them.
