    I am looking for any information for my grandfather, Marino DiSante(sp?) born July 17th, 1890 in Casoli, Chieti. He emigrated to the USA in early 1900’s. We believe he had a brother who emigrated to Argentina and possibly a sister or 2. Spelling of last name may have been changed upon arrival to the US but we are not positive.
    Thank you,

    I am searching for more information on my mother’s family. Her mother was Rosina Tenaglia born 8/23/1893. My grandfather is Pietro Genovese,(born 1890) census records say he was also from Casoli but I do not believe this is accurate information.
    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I am trying to do some geneological research on my family in Italy, specifically Casoli, Chieti, Abruzzo.

    My Great-Grandmother’s name was Elisa DeCinque. She immigrated to the U.S. in 1912, and I believe she had an older sister named Maria Maddalena. Elisa was born on July 16th, 1890, and Maria was born in about 1883. Anything farther back than that would be useful. I am trying to locate their parents names, siblings, etc. I have come up with nothing but dead ends on other databases. I am trying to connect with other relatives so that I can get a strong family history base for my grandfather, who is going to be 90 years old in a few weeks.

    Any information and help you could provide would be fantastic!!!
