We received this email from Jillian. We decided to post it, to share with you her happiness of beeing able to find more about her Italian ancestors.
Now she is our friend and we are happy with her.

I am writing to let everyone know how great Italianside.com is. My name is Jillian. I was surfing the web one night looking for information about my ancestor who came to America from Quadri Italy. This is a town in Chieti Province. I look through Italianside.com website and saw all the amazing thing that they had to offer. I decided to send a email to see if anyone could assist me with my search.

Within 24 hours I had a email from Michele. I explained my situation to him. That I only had a town in Abruzzo to go with. I gave him all my Great Grandfather information. And he help me to contact the Municipality in Quadri. We received a Birth Certificate for my Great Grandfather and Death Certificate for His Parents. Also we received a family tree.

I want to Thank Michele. He help me with stuff, I could not figure out by myself. We have a bond now. He is my friend from a far. I will never forget what he has done for me. I would suggest anyone looking for your Italian Roots. To search and ask questions on Italianside.com. They help with whatever questions you have.

Best Regards In Your Search.

    I am sorry for responding to an old post, but can someone provide me with a valid email address for Quadri? I am traveling there in June and would love to have info about my family. The few email addresses I’ve found online and tried haven’t generated a response. Thanks!

    Hello Italianside… like Jillian, my family also decended from Quadri. I have not had any luck with the public offices of Quadri. Does anyone have a valid email for anyone in Quadri that would not be a hoax??
