    I am planning to travel to Italy and visit Pisciotta while there, as it is the hometown of my grandmother, Alesandrina Dalesandro Casagrandi. I know that she was born in 1880, but know nothing more. With the town as small as it is, I am hopeful to be able to trace her roots & learn anything that I might. Your help or direction is greatly appreciated.

    My grandmother was born in Pisciotta in 1882, her name was Anna Marie Dianese. I believe her father’s name was Gaetano. I was able to find her name listed in the Pisciotta Stati Civile, Indice Decennale, Attitude di Nassita; however, I was not able to find her name in the Registro which would have had all the birth information. Please assist if you are able.
    Thanks in advance,
    Rosemary

    My family originated in Pisciotta and emigrated to the US in the early 1900′s. My grandfather Guiseppie D’Andreano was born there in September, 1896 to Luigi and Rosina D’Andreano. Any information you may have of them or the family name would be appreciated. They also had two other sons Pietro and Francesco alsso born in Pisciotta. Do you know of any D’Andreano family that still live there?
