  2. I’m looking for information on my Great Grandmother, born in Pratola, Angelina Pucci, 1883, (Mother, Luigia (Lugette) Liberatore).
    Are there any Pucci’s in the area?

  3. Hi Catrina, my name is Arlene Santalucia and I happened across your post while poking around for some information on what area of Italy my family comes from. My grandfather’s name was Vincenzo, he was married to Margaret (Peggy) McNabb and his mother’s name was Angelina. Could she be the one you are looking for?

  4. Looking for information on Agata Di Nino born 1873 in Pratola Peligna. She married Federico Santilli.

  5. Are there any Liberatore’s on here? I am seeking information on my Great, Great Grandmother Luigia (Lugetta) Liberatore, married to a Mr Celeste Pucci? Thank you.

  6. I am hoping to find some information about my grandfather’s parents. His name is Domenico Antonio Lucente, born in Pratola Peligna L’Aquila Italy in 1892. Thank you

    1. My mother’s cousin were Lucente. Emigrated and settled in Meriden CT. The name sounds familiar.

  7. For all of those looking for family connections, I recoginze many of the names in your requests. I suggest you get on to the local Facebook page .
    This is where locals post. Put your request on there and use the ‘Google Translate’ app to write it in Italian as well. I’m sure you’ll come up with something.
    There’s also the actual City of Pratola community page “Comune di Pratola Peligna” that most residents view. You can try that too.

    Good Luck!

  8. Lu, I thought I left this message a couple of weeks ago, but I do not see where it posted, so… Meriden, CT is extremely familiar. Who is your mom, I may know her?
