    Hello; I visited Minturno about 1999. Here is a brief geneology that I convirmed at your “city hall”. We the administrators assistance, I was able to potocopy the actual birth and death certificates of the following ancestors: Grandfather- Francesco Conte @ 1880; My father- Pasquale Archangelo Conte dob- 1902; Antonio Conte and Nunzio Conte, Pasquales younger brothers, all came to the U.S. in 1920 to 1930′s. In the early 1900′s they were all young fishermen in my grandfather Francesco’s small fleet.
    If you can be of any assistance at all in my searching, I will be most appreciative. Thank you and God Bless!

    I am trying to make contact with my paternal family originating in Minturno. For some reason, an “r” was left out of the name when the ancestors came to America. My original Italian name is Sciarretta. I would like to be able to contact my family in Minturno to obtain more information.

    I would also like to visit Minturno this year to meet some of my Italian relatives.

    Thank you for anything that you can do to help me.
