    My father Tommasso came to England with his family in 1890 as a very small child, less than a year old. He remained in England all his life apart from the 1914-18 war when he was drafted into the Italian Army. He spoke little about his life so we in turn know little. I believe he was born in Picinisco although Villa Latina has been mentioned. His father was Antonio and I believe my father was the youngest of eleven children. I would like to visit the area next year if I can locate his place of birth. As I will be unable to drive in Italy is there a train service I could use.?
    Your help would be gratefully received.

    I am searching for the ancestors of my grandfather Benedetto Antonio Maggiorino left at a doorstep of Lucia Valvona in Picinisco. She was an elder lady who in turn gave the child to the family of Filomena Silla. She had a biological daughter named: Maria Silla. My grandfather later married: Elisabetta Mancini Fanone.
    My grandfather made a trip to the United States to work for a while and returned to Italy until his death in 1959. Thanking you in advance for all your assitance or any information.

    I wish to find the name of the church in Picinisco where my grandparents were married. How do I begin the search? My grandfather came from Villa Latina and my Grandmother came from Picinisco. An estimate of the date of the marriage would be 1910 or 1911. I am assuming that they were married in her town as was the custom back then.

    Thank you

    My family surname is Caschere. My grandfather, Domenico, came to the UK, I believe,at the turn of the 19th century. I’ m told that he came from near Rome and Picinisco rings a bell. My grandmother’s surname was Capocci, again from the Rome area

  10. Nina says:

    My maiden name is Picinisco and it has always interested me on how that came about. As far as I know my grandparents were from Roccesseca It. My granfathers name was Erico(Enrico) Picinisco, he married Maria Caucci in the United States but both were born in Roccesseca Italy as far as we know.

  11. Michael says:

    I am trying to locate a marriage certificate for my great grandfather Nunziato Gizzi to Maria Grilli, which took place in about 1860, Nuziato was a farmer and came from Agnone, [now known as Villa Latina], in the province of Frosinone, most of their children were born in San Giuseppe in the province of Frosinone, which leads me to think that this is where Maria may have came from, can you be of any assistance ?
    many thanks
