    Hello. My name is Jim Gravante from Pittsburgh, PENNSYLVANIA, USA
    My Grandmother Ersilia Mosticoni, and my Grandfather Genasio Damiani were born in Nereto Italy, and came to the USA in about 1920. I loved them dearly. My Grandfather died when I was 2 (in 1962) and my Grandmother passed away in 1993.i would love to visit Nereto someday (I am 57) and see the town of my beloved grandparents. I know many of my grandmother’s sisters did not immigrate to the USA, and remained in Nereto. I would love to find my family in Italy. Please send me info about your town so I could make plans to come. Gracious.

    Ciao! Mi chiamo Robert Ciarrocchi e vivo negli Stati Uniti. Posso parlare Italiano un poco ma non perfetto. Il mio bisnonno è nato nella regione del Teramo Abruzzo attorno 1885. Il suo nome era Giovanni e il nome di sua moglie era Filomena, anche se non so il suo nome da nubile. Dopo aver parlato con Giustino Ciarrocchi a Teramo, mi ha detto che la sua famiglia in realtà è nato a Nereto. Questo mi porta a voi. Eventuali ulteriori informazioni su questo geneology sarebbe molto apprezzato! Grazie per il vostro tempo – Non vedo l’ora di sentire da voi!
