    My grandparents are from the Scotrone area. They were born around the early 1900’s. Interested to know if Tiritilli is a common name in the area. The name may have been Americanized.

    I am looking for as much information as I can regarding my two great great grandparents that were from Scontrone.

    My great great grandmother’s name was Maria Concordia (married name- DeVito, also spelled Di Vito in some recdords) Shewas born around October 9th, 1894. Her husband, Edward (Eduardo) DeVito Di Vito) was born around February 16th 1888.

    I am trying to trace this family tree back as far as possible, so copies of birth certificates would be extremely helpful.

    Thank you!
