    My Mother’s father had the surname of D’Eusanio. His name was Guido D’Eusanio and he was from San Demetrio in L’Aquila province, Abruzzi region. He and my grandmother were married in San Demetrio. Her name was Elisa Antonini. Guido and Elisa were both born in the late 1890’s.
    I would appreciate any information you can give me. I am making a trip to Italy in September of this year and would like some hints on getting more info about my mother’s side of the family. (My father’s side of the family was from Sicily, but I am not going to be able to go there this trip, so am focusing only on my Mother’s side right now.)
    Thank you.
