    My grandfather on my mother’s side was born in San Marco Dei Cavoti. His name was Thedore Soriano. I visited the village in August of 1975 with my parents Dominick & Carmela (Soriano) Perez and was fortunate to have met some of my distant relatives. We showed up one late morning after driving from Avelino and were hoping to see my mother’s cousins. We knocked on their door and when they opened it they could not have been more gracious and welcoming. They immediately started to prepare a wonderful lunch and insisted we join them. I remember taking a picture from the balcony of their house with all of us, including my distant cousin who looked almost like my twin. It was truly a beautiful day and I think about it often. It’s most dear to my heart since my dad died on Dec. 31st of that year. It was the last trip we took together as a family. I would love to hear from my relatives if this note finds its way to them and maybe catch up on the last 39 years… or some of it!

    Hello! I have been searching for information on my great great grandfather’s family and hit a dead end. His name was Diodoro Castellucci, he was married to a Maria Antonia. They had many children, one of which was Antonette Castellucci who was born 17 January 1921 in San Marco Dei Cavoti. I’ve gotten all the information i’ve been able to find about his time here in the US but when it comes to any information in Italy i can’t seem to find any. From what i had heard over the years, his wife and a couple of his children never made it over here to the US. Any help you can give me would be fantastic! Thank you so much!
