    My grandfather was a DiFiore and my grandmother was a D’Alonzo.

    My dream is to come visit Lettomanoppello some day. I’m wondering if I still have some family there? I don’t speak Italian, but may take a class soon.

    Thank you for any information that you can give me.

    Grandfather was a DiPaolo and grandmother was a Ciccone.

    My husband and I are discussing a trip to Lettomanoppello. We don’t speak Italian, will we have problems with the registrar’s office?

    Thank You in advance.
