    Hello! I’d like to start a research on my family roots. My great great grandparents emigrated from Pietrabbondante by the end of the 19th century. They came to Argentina. Their surname was Di Salvo. They had a daughter, Concepcion, who married Maximo Zarlenga.

    I have hit a brick wall searching for my grandfather, Florindo Ianno. He immigrated to the U.S. in the late 1890′s, and settled in Pittsburgh, PA. I have his naturalization papers, but there is no information pertaining to the exact town he was from or the ship he came in on. I believe he was from Pietrabbondante, Italy, but I’m not sure. He had two sons, Giovanni Ianno and Nicola Ianno. Rumor has it that his first wife died in childbirth, and I don’t have her name. He married my grandmother here in the U.S. sometime between 1913 and 1914. If you have any information on my grandfather, please contact me.

    Hello, I am writing to learn more about my family history. My great grandparents immigrated to the United States from Pietrabbondante in the 1920′s. Elena Zarlenga was born in 1901 and Romolo DiPinto was born around 1900. Please, if there is any information pertaining to either of these two families, contact me.
