    My Grandfather Luigi Vagnone, his mother was a Pia. They came from Settafretti to NYC. Any information?

  2. Jason says:

    My families origin is Frosinone Lazio Italy. My father is Ronald Marchelletta 1st generation American born to John & Connie Marchelletta. My grandfather John had 7 brothers & several sisters. I wish to learn more about my families history in Italy.

  3. Dan says:

    My Grandparents Gerardo Zezima and Petronella Vitti-Zezima
    They came Stamford CT with my mother Domenica and 5 more siblings also some extended family…circa 1929

  4. Rachel says:

    Hello! Just got info that my paternal 2nd great grandparents were from Settefrati.
    Philippo Pia, and Lucretzia Zezima- they came to NY in 1890s.
    I would love more info about them- but there seems that Pia was also a pretty common surname too!

    • Ellen says:

      Both of those names are in my family as well. Do you have any other Pia’s or Zezima’s that you could name so we could see how we could be related? I have quite a bit of info in my tree.


      • Pete says:

        Ellen, Rachael and Dan- I am pretty sure we are related in some way. I have been able to verify details going back 6 generations using birth, marriage, death, and immigration records.

        • ellen says:

          Hi Pete! Is it possible (a year later) that we could share your info?

          • Pete says:

            Just yesterday evening I restarted some research and stumbled upon a lot of information – it’s more than a coincidence I think, that your reply was right around the same time (and that I re-stumbled onto this site, found my original post and your reply). Would be fun to connect and see what we could figure out. Are you aware of a way for all of us to get in touch without posting contact details in such a public forum? Would love to host a Zoom call and 1) try to figure out if we are related, 2) share the results of our research with one another (I am sure it’s all interesting plus it could help each other fill in any gaps we may have).

          • Pete says:

            Hi – would be eager to connect, however am unsure how to exchange email addresses without doing so via this publicly viewable forum. Perhaps a site admin can connect the me, you and Dan? If so, please share my email address with these two previous posters (Ellen and Dan).

            The timing here is eerie. I only reignited my research in any major way just this week – within days of you replying to my post from last year. And, I randomly happened to re-stumble upon this page by accident (like last time). Coincidence? Serendipity? Who knows.

            I have found a lot of excellent information online through a variety of sources. It would be great to compare notes via a Zoom call or the like.

    • Stephanie says:

      Frances, Hello. I have done the genealogy on my mother’s side. She was born in Settefrati. My great grandmother was Lusia Zezima Macari(sometimes pronounced Zetsima.) Luisa was born in 1862. Is it possible she is the grandmother you are looking for?? If she is, I have the generations along that grandparent line back to 1750. Let me know what you think,and if I can be of any help.


      • Cindy says:

        My Grandmother’s family name was Zemo. My understanding was that it was changed from Zezima and they were from this town in Italy. Most of them settled in southern Connecticut. Relatives?

        • Dana says:

          Yes I think we are related

        • Cindy says:

          Hi Cindy. I think we maybe related.
          My grandmother was Concetta Zezima her brother was John Zemo-Zemo Bros. She married my grandfather Peter Carella – changed to Carlo when he went into business – Monte Carlo and Carlo Bros in Greenwich. Was your grandmother Vicky my grandmothers sister. I remember she had a daughter named Cindy also.

      • Carol says:

        Stephanie, my great-grandfather is Carmine Macari, and great grandmother is Maria Luiga Zezima. From the records I have seen it appears Carmine’s father’s name is Antonio Macari. Is this correct? Carmine’s son Paul or Paolo Macari is my grandfather. He married Petronella Fabrizi, the daughter of Concession Fabrizi. They were married in New York, but the record of Petronella’s birth seems to mention Antonio Macari (possibily as a witness).

      • Roseanne says:

        Hi. My great grandmother was Lucia Zezima. That was the name on her death certificate. Could this be the same person? My grandfather’s name was Gerardo Vagnone.

      • Robert says:

        My mother was a Vitti and one of her grandmother was a Zezima. I migrated to Stamford Ct.

      • Anthony says:

        HI Stephanie – Do you have any Antonio or daughter Vincenza Zezima (born 1847) in your family tree (mother Anastasia Colarossi)? Would like to fill out more of my tree if possible.

      • Tanya says:

        Hi. I’m hoping to get to Italy next year to go to where my ancestors were from. My great grandfather and great great grandfather’s were Archangelo and Luigi Macari. Would this be any connection to your Macari’s? They moved to Ireland but my granny went back to Italy to visit relatives there
