    This is a shot in the dark, but I am helping my mother try and locate her biological Father and members of his family. My mother was born in Atina in November 1955. Her mothers name was Rita Degni from Civita D’Antino , Province of L’Aquila Abruzzo.
    The problem being we do not have a name for her biological father and believe her may be deceased, however there is a possibility he also had 2 sons which would be my mother’s half brothers. My mother and grandmother left Italy and moved to Scotland with a family called Volante’s from the village of Atina. My mother and grandmother then moved to Ireland where they still live.
    If there is anyone with any information or are familiar with the Volante family please let me know. Thank you Stefania

    Does anyone know if Church Records for Atina are held anywhere else? I got very limited help from the priest of the church in Atina when I visited and he was also totally unresponsive to the requests of locals who thought they could persuade him to provide more information. Someone suggested they may have copies somewhere in Santa Maria Capua a Vetere.

  16. Lynn says:

    I am tracing my ancestry and can only go as far as Francesco Gargaro who was born in 1850 in Atina Frosinone. He was married to Maria who was Born in 1855 – they were already married when they moved to England and in an 1881 English census he was living in Chapel Street Derby with Maria and there were a number of other Italians living at the same address – Francescos occupation was given as a musician. I believe there were a number of Gargaros in this region and there still is, although it is not one of the more common names. I wonder if you can help by providing details of his parents if possible.


    • Emily says:

      Hi Lynn. Unfortunately I don’t have the info you are after but I am also looking into my ancestry and Francesco Gargaro is my mothers great grandfather ( I think that’s right ) He was a musician and had a music shop in Rundle Street in Adelaide.

  17. Randy says:

    Hi, I am looking for birth records (and whatever else my be available) for my grandfather Antonio Corsi. he was born on October 13, 1888 In Atina. His father (my great-grandfather) was Michele. He was married to Josephine (maiden name unknown) and known siblings are Romeo and Giuseppe. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  18. Hans says:

    I’m in Atina for a couple of days searching for records of my grandmother, Catherina Vecchione, born in Atina on 23 June 1892. Her father was Geatano Vecchione born in 1867, and her mother is believed to be Filomena D’ Angelis, also born in 1867.
    As far as I understand from records in Rotterdam, Holland, she moved to Rotterdam in 1911 ( at the age of 19), to marry my grandfather Franz Johann Reumkens in 1912. My father was born on 2 August 1913. Catherina died 4 November 1935 in Rotterdam.
    I have never been able to find ou more about her, as my father died when I was 6 years old. Recently I started the search with my son, who is very interested to find out about his roots, especialy the Italian link. What makes it complicated is, that my grandmother registered in Rotterdam as Vickioni, born in Atina. According to several people I met on blogs and forums, this cannot be right and it should be Vecchione or Vecchioni. Can you help in finding out more. Kindest regards. Hans

  19. Debbie says:

    My grandmother was Luisa Carolina De Angelis, she was born in 1904 in Atina and married my grandfather Stephen Macari. I presume they were married in Italy, as I cannot find any records in the UK.
