    Il mio bisnonno paterno, Biago (Biogi?) Vannicola nato 3 febbraio 1873, e la bisnonna, Giacinta Angelino (Angelini?), Nato 1872, è venuto a Stati Uniti tramite Ellis Island. Sono venuti da (in base alla manifesta navi e Biogi di documenti di naturalizzazione degli Stati Uniti d’America) Civitella del Trento, Teramo, Italia. Sono in grado di trovare Trento, solo Tronto. Sono sicuro che Trento è una città vecchia che non è più.

    Tre dei loro figli sono nati a Teramo, Italia (niente di più specifico): Pasquale 16 Dicembre 1898; Luigi 21 Agosto 1902, 1908; Giacomo 14 gennaio 1908.

    Ho anche scoperto che il nome del padre di Biago era Dominice Vannicola.

    La storia della famiglia è che mio nonno (Giacomo AKA Jake) proveniva da / torta ah ree Tcha /. Piarecha? E che è stato, mi hanno detto, una piccola città, non su una mappa, nel “tacco” d’Italia. Questo non tornano con cui vedo Teramo sulla mappa.

    Tutte le informazioni su Trento sarebbe molto apprezzato. Qualsiasi raccomandazione di dove follow-up con la mia ricerca sarebbe molto apprezzato anche.

    Grazie!
    My paternal great grandfather, Biago (Biogi?) Vannicola born February 3, 1873, and great grandmother, Giacinta Angelino (Angelini?), born 1872, came to USA via Ellis Island. They came from (according to ship manifests and Biogi’s USA Naturalization papers) Civitella del Trento, Teramo, Italy. I am unable to find Trento, only Tronto. I am sure Trento is an old town that is no longer.

    Three of their children were born in Teramo, Italy (nothing more specific): Pasquale Dec 16, 1898; Luigi Aug 21, 1902, 1908; Giacomo Jan 14, 1908.

    I also found that Biago’s father’s name was Dominice Vannicola.

    The family story is that my grandfather (Giacomo AKA Jake) came from /pie ah ree tcha/. Piarecha? And that was, I’m told, a small town, not on a map, in the “heel” of Italy. This doesn’t add up with where I see Teramo on the map.

    Any information about Trento would be greatly appreciated. Any recommendation of where to follow up with my search would be greatly appreciated also.

    Thank you!

    Aloha from Hawaii – My grandparents came to US in early 1900s – My grandfather Vincenzo Fagioli married Fortunata Di Giambattista between 1904 and 1906 I believe in Civitella. I tried using marriage records in Teramo but they do not have all the records. I know it is asking much of you but could you suggest a way I might access records for those years for marriage OR birth records for Vincenzo or Fortunata born about 1871-1978 in Civitella? If I cannot get information this way I hope to be able to visit Civitella soon!
