      Hello, my husband’s grandmother was Valentina D’Annibale, from Ceccano, Italy. Her father was Alessandro D’Annibale & she married Filippo “Phillip” Staccone, Sr. & came to America, settling in Williamsport, PA. Do you know if she may be connected to your grandfather? I’m unable to go any further back than her father & do not know of any siblings.

        My father’s last name was Colapietro and I grew up in Toledo, Ohio. His family was from Ceccano and I remember they had friends/relatives named Del Brocco. I believe my grandparents would have come over to the US earlier though. Of 13 children, my father was one of the younger ones and he was born in 1916. Only one child was born in italy.

    I am looking for any information I can find on my maternal grandfather, Joseph Santodonato. He was born in Ceccano on Sept. 11, 1889. In the 1920 Census of the USA, it lists his wife at Rose Pollitto (born in Greensburg PA USA on Jan. 15, 1899). They were married around 1916 in USA. Rose’s parents were born in the Callabria area of Italy. He died in Dec. 1964 in Greensburg PA.
    His brother’s name is Francescantonio Santodonato, born in Rome (or Ceccano). Through New York passenger lists, there are several years of birth: 1887, 1889, 1890.
    I will traveling to Ceccano around Sept. 17-19. Please advise me where I might go to look up any information: are there still Santodonato’s living in Ceccano. Church records showing addresses, any personal information, names of his parents. Thank you! Grazie!!!

    My great grandfather Luigi Scarsella was born in 1882 And great grandmother Columba Germani born in 1888 were married and lived in Ceccano before coming to Ellis Island in I believe 1913 with their children Ugo, Remo, Berths, Vince, Lee and Anne. Are either of these names still common in Ceccano. Wondering how many relatives we have there. Thank you for any help you can give me.

    • Cindy says:

      Wow, just found this site and was scrolling thru names, and we are related! Wondering what your father’s and grandfather’s name are? My mom’s mother (my Nana) was Vincencina Germani, Columba’s sister! We visited her nephews and nieces, Ugo, vince, Anne etc in the town near Buffalo(I think Lackawanna?) Several times, but it’s been prob 20 plus yrs since I was there. and I remember meeting your g grandmother Columba a few times. Fascinating to me , as my nana passed a month after I was born, and everyone said how much she and columba looked alike.

  12. Deborah says:

    My grandfather Angelo C Santodonato left Ceccano around 1902. At age 15 he came to Ellis Island. My father thought he came alone. Looking for any relatives. So much I want to know. My grandfather married. I have corresponded with a man born in Ceccano. He told me the Santodonato name originated in Ceccano. Here in the states there are not many Santodonato’s. Any information appreciated.

  13. Kim says:

    My grandmother, Agnese (Agnes) Cicciarelli was born in Ceccano on 17 September 1908 and I can’t seem to find any information on her family. She is deceased but my father said she has siblings named Angelo, Elizabeth, Vincenzo that he had heard her mention. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    • Michele says:

      Kim. My Grandparents were both from Ceccano. His last name: Tiberia. Her last name: Cerroni
      Before they were married, my grandfather married a woman from Ceccano named Agnes. They had a boy named Joe and a daughter named Maria (Marie) and moved to Detroit. A few years later Agnes died. My Grandfather returned to Ceccano searching for his new wife and married Theresa Cerroni.

      This is the same time period. My Mother came along in 1930…so that means his original marriage was about 13 -15 yrs earlier.

      Could this be a match?

    • Patricia says:

      Hi, my father, Tony was born in Ceccano – came to America with his parents when he was 13 or 14 – His parents were Angelo and Louisa Cicciarelli. They they settled in Elmira, New York for one year, then moved to Endicott, New York where many Italian immigrants lived and worked for the Endicott Johnson (EJ) shoe factory . He had 2 brothers, Phillip and Johnny and one sister, Antonette. Tony married my Mother, Carmella Cordisco, whose parents immigrated from Naples and Garsetta, Italy. They were married in 1936, my brother Angelo was born in 1937 and I was born in 1941 – Tony left my Mother when I was 2 years old and ultimately they were divorced. I hardly knew my father . . . But was always interested in what part of Italy he came from.
      My husband and I have had the good fortune to be able to travel to Italy many times – we have been in Rome many times and never knew our family lived not that far from Rome . . . Who knows , we may be related!

  14. Amy says:

    Looking for more information on my great grandparents that were from Ceccano, Italy. My grandfather, Benedetto Misseritti, emigrated to the US around 1910. He was born in Ceccano, Italy on May 9 or 10, 1889 or 1888. HIs parents were Giuseppe Misseritti and Grace Misseritti. He had a brother, Alexander, that died as a young man most likely before 1910. If you can direct me to any information on Giuseppe and Grace Misseritti (unknown maiden name) whom I assume were born in the 1860s in Ceccano, Italy and had at least two sons, Benedetto (born 1888 or 1889) and Alexander, I would truly appreciate your assistance.

    Thank you very much.

    P.S. My mother is Gloria Sandra Maritto (Misseritti) daughter of Benedetto Misseritto and granddaughter of Giuseppe and Grace Misseritti of Ceccano Italy.

  17. Tim says:

    I am doing research for my fiancé. Her mother’s parents were born in Ceccano in 1900. Louis Joseph Massa and Ana Felicia Massa were third cousins (note that Ana has the same maiden and married last name), both born in Ceccano in 1900, married in Ceccano in 1919-20, and emigrated into the USA around 1930. We plan on traveling to Ceccano in October 2015. Could your service do any pre-research prior to our arrival? Could you conduct a tour of the town? Thank you for your time and consideration.
    Regards, Tim

  19. Alessandro says:

    I am looking for military records for my grandfather. His name was Felicetto Pinebbi married to Antonia. He fought in WW2 and was a prisoner of war. All my mom can tell me is when he returned to Ceccano the people ran back into their houses because of how dark he was and it took several years for his skin colour to lighten. I would like to find out where he was held as a prisoner of war and any other information I can find out about his military service.
