    My grandparents are from Minturno. My grandmother’s Maiden Name is Dicostanzo. My grandfather’s name is Pensiero.

    My Grandmother’s first name is Anna; her siblings were Julian, Vincent, Beatrice, and others whose names I do not know.

    My Grandfather’s first name is Nicholas. He also had siblings whose names I do not know.

    Lastly, I was told they were in Shkowaadi (I apologize for the spelling, but I have no idea what the actual name was, and I wrote it phonetically).

    I would appreciate knowing how I can continue my search of my family tree. Thank you.

    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!

    • Antonia says:

      Hello, My father’s family, Conte, came from Minturno. His father, Nicholoas married Filippa Treglia (these are my grandparents) and his Uncle Anthony and Uncle Anthony’s sister, Mary came over to the U.S. in the mid 1900’s I think. Mary was followed by her future husband, Antonio Paparella, along with her sister Concetta and some other relatives. Many stayed in Minturno. I would love to know who was related to them and me. Maybe you are! I do know my grandfather’s father had a fleet and they were all fishermen too.

      My father’s family came into Ellis Island and settled in Trenton, NJ. But some went elsewhere in other parts of NJ I think and also Florida.

    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.

    • Theresa says:

      I would be interested in speaking with you. My maiden name is Shiretta (Americanized from Sciarretta in 1920). My great grandparents, Pasquale Sciarretta and Maria Cardillo were from Minturno. I am trying to decipher some history prior to them coming over from Italy and would love to compare notes to see if we are speaking of the same family.

  24. Sam says:

    Would it be better to contact the Minturno city office by phone or mail, and what is their phone number or mailing address?
