    I am looking for any information regarding my Grandmother’s, Maria Carmina Mancini, parents (my great-grandparents). My grandmother was Born, and raised, in San Benedetto dei Marsi on March 15, 1890. If she had any brothers or sisters I do not know. I was told that her parents died in the great earthquake of 1915 and my grandmother then was raised by a local doctor. I have no names for my great-grandparents or DOB and DOD. Any information would be greatly appreciated. The name of that doctor would also be helpful. Thank-you ever so much.
