      I visit Viticuso every year. My grandfather came to the states in the late 1920’s. My first cousin married a Luigi Papa and so probably is related. We may be able to get more information for you when we go back in April.

    Hi, I am looking for information on Alberto Rossi born March 6, 1883 in Viticuso. He immigrated to the United States in 1905 or 1906. He had a sister Ersilia and a sister Agata? Any information would be greatly appreciated!

    Looking for information on my Great Grandmother her full name was Lucia Verrecchia DOB 19th June 1879, her husband (my Great Grandfather) was Carmine Papa also born 1879 he died 25th December 1948 in Viticuso. I am also looking for records on my grandmother her name was Rosina Maria Papa born in 1904 and her brother Peter (I think in Italian Pietro) Papa born in 1914. I know they were living in England in 1911 and on the census of 1911 they had my grandmothers name down as Fortunated, I don’t know why. My Great grandmother, Lucia’s parents names were Antonio Verrecchia and we think Maria Romano. I have got my Great Grandmothers Italian Passport if you need any more information. My Grandmother Rosina always said that she was born in Monte Cassino as it was known then. We have now come to a complete stop in tracing our family ancestry, I hope you can help us.
