    My grandparents and their families are from San Angelo Allesca, Italy. My grandmother’s name is Maria Luise Guisti…born October 28, 1882 and died April 13, 1952. I do not have my grandfather’s birthdate …his name was Patsy Guisti. My grandmother is buried in a cemetery in San Angelo, Allesca, Italy but i don’t know where the cemetery is. I am visiting Italy April of 2019 and would like to visit her grave. Would like to know how to find this cemetery and also try to find some relatives. Any suggestions on how to go about this. Would be so appreciated. Nancy, Pa USA

    Bonjourno, I’m trying to confirm whether my great-grandmother and her siblings were from Sant’Angelo all’Esca. My great-grandmother was Maria Colucci and I believe she was born on September 12, 1874. She had two brothers, Peter and Patsy, and a sister, Virginia. I believe she immigrated to New York around 1893 and married my great-grandfather, Joseph (Guiseppe) Christiano (Cristiano?) around 1894. She listed her parents as being Guiseppe Colucci and Conyetto (Constance) Uana. His parents were listed as Antonio Cristiano and Marza Palermo. I think he was born around 1870 but I’m not sure if he is from the same town.

    I would appreciate knowing if she really was from this place. Thank you.

      Hi Carla: I believe Sant’Angelo all’Esca is the birthplace of my great-grandmother, Michelina Iovanna (b.1885). That surname is probably the same as Uana in your note. Michelina lived in the US but didn’t speak English, so I have seen many different spellings of it based on what the American recorder thought they heard and a few sound like Uana – Yuana, Wana, etc. So I’m guessing that the pronunciation of Iovanna buries the V and to an American ear disappears altogether. Michelina’s parents were Raffaele Iovanna and Mariangela Cristiano – another name in your note (and the one below from Frank). She, her brother Michele and a cousin Michele Cristiano all emigrated to Tacoma, Washington.

        Hi Greg,

        I forgot I had written this and am now just seeing the reply. No one in my family, at least that I’m aware of, went to Tacoma. We’re mostly east coasters with a Chicago connection as well. I found a weird spelling for my great-grandfather today on a birth record of a great aunt–Kritiano. There is a first time for everything! I’ll take a look around Iovanna and see what I come up with.
