  1. Joni Vallese Current says:

    My grandfather Alexander Vallese and his brother Guiseppe Vallese came to the USA. Guiseppe was older born in 1893. Alexander was younger. Alexander had 10 children. I was wondering who their parents were and if they have any family remaining in Italy. I have been told there were from two different tows; Tortoreo or Guilianovia.

    Trying to find relatives of my grandfather, Guiseppe S. Marcone from Guilianova

  3. Mildred says:

    I’ve been trying to find information about my grandparents. My grandfather Giulio Ortenzi came from Giulinova I believe. I see on US immigration records my grandmother, Anna Vallese (1881-1950) came from Giulinova with their three kids in Nov 1909 into NY in her way to Ohio. I can make out her daughter Giuseppina (Josephine Ortenzo 1906-1985), Alfonso Ortenzo (1907-1953) and Alfredo (1909-1954). I haven’t found when my grandfather entered the country. My grandmother record shows her mother was also Giuseppina.

    I did find my grandfathers brother Antonio Ortenzo (1882-1948) who also came in Feb 1909 from Giulinova to Dennison, Ohio. More recently I found another brother, Raffaele Ortenzio (1887-?) initial came from Giulinova in Mar 1912 but listed place of birth as Monciano Stant’Angelo. Apparently, he went back and returned to the US in Apr 1920 this time from Francavilla and lists his wife as Elisa. I don’t know what became of him.

    I know of another sister, Maria Ortenzi (1877- 1962) she married a Nazionale and most of that family is still in Cologna, a family member and descendants live in West Virginia.

    I believe there is at least one other sister or more but I can’t seem to find documentation. I’m looking for help, ideas for a new search avenue.

  4. Jane says:

    My grandmother, Splendora Mancini, was born in Giulianova on 24 January, 1891. She had a sister named Maria (or Mary). Splendora came to the USA in 1912 (I think Maria came before her and married a Gianetti), leaving her parents behind. Her parents were Filomena Acquarala (my grandmother spelled these names many ways but this way most often) and Alessandro (Alesandro) Mancini. Splendora worked at distilleria Erminio Orsini in about 1911. Splendora also had a stepbrother and a stepsister named Joseph and Marinella Pavone. Joseph came to the US but Marinella stayed in Giulianova, marrying a man with surname of Oddi. Marinella and Señor Oddi had children named Dina, Elia, Olga & Elda. Dina married someone with surname D’angele (D’angela, D’angelo) and they had children named Peppino, Maria, Giuliana and Giorgio (and maybe Teresa). Elda married someone named De Martile (Arturo?) and they had children Teresa, Giovanni and Francesco. Some may have moved to Pescara; some to Ofena or Penne. Anyone in the know in the US is now deceased, and we very much would like to find my grandmother’s family to know who they are and where they came from. Thank you for any help you might have.

  5. Gail says:

    Hello, My grandfather was Abidon Guido Michele Crocetti, born in ~1895 in Giulianova. We can’t find any record of when and how he came to the United States. When we visited Giulianova, we did search the old cemetery for his parents graves, but couldn’t find them (Benedetto Crocetti and Addolorada (Mara) Crocetti. Would you have any information about the deaths of Benedetto or Addolorado? Thank you

  6. Tina says:

    Hello, I am trying to research my family line. My grandfather was Armando Di Bonaventura and he was born in Giulianova in Italy. He was one of four brothers. He was born in 1928. I am trying to find out anything about the family tree. thank you!

    • Conrad says:

      Hi Tina,

      Your Di Bonaventura family most likely originated in Montepagano, which is near Giulianova. All Di B’s from this local area of Abruzzo are related. I and my wife have researched her Di B. family extensively and we have written a book about it, detailing all branches of the family, having recorded every Di B. ancestor from 1600 through 1900. Please contact us for more information, as the probability of your being related and part of this (our) family is very high.

  7. Cayla says:

    I am looking for information about my husband’s family. The name we know is Vincenzo Cialini, born in 1889. His World War I draft card lists Giulanova as his birthplace. My mother-in-law remembers his wife was named Spiandora Tribuano, or something phonetically similar, but I’ve found no records of her, or anything further about him. I believe they married in Italy before coming to America, and their first child was born in Italy in 1913, though even this is conflicted on various records. They settled in Portland, Maine. If anyone has any information on these names, or the Cialini family, I would be very grateful. My husband’s grandmother (Vincenzo’s daughter) remembers little, but claims they still have relatives in Italy. I would love to make contact if this is true.

    • Sue Charles says:

      Carla, I am Guiseppe Cialini’s daughter. He is the son of Vincenzo and Splindora. What is your husband’s name? Who is his grandmother?

  8. Louis Cosenza says:

    I just met a man with my last name that lives in Media, Pennsylvania. He said his father came from Giulianova in the 1930’s. I found this interesting insofar as MY family was from the commune of Fara San Martino, also in Abruzzo. On a trip there in 2008 we were unable to locate any Cosenza’s whatsoever. Are there still Cosenza’s in the Pescara area?
