    I am planning a trip to Italia in September and will be including Pescosansonesco in my trip. My maternal great grandmother (Valentina di Rocco) and great grandfather (Luigi degli Augelli) both immigrated to the US from Pescosansonesco. I would like to learn as much about my family as I can and your help would be greatly appreciated.
