    Hi I am looking for information regarding my Grandfather Cesidio Buzzeo 16/06/1892 who arrived in Newcastle upon Tyne back in the day ….we think 1899 …….does anyone know why / how would someone leave Settefrati to come to the U.K and why Newcastle? at that early age ?

    • Brian says:

      My mother’s family came from Settefrati to Newcastle at about that time. I remember her telling me that the Buzzio family lived next door to them in Argyle Place, Newcastle.

    i am looking for any information on my great grandmother Lucia Capocci who was from Settefrati. she was born April 1861 we understand that she eloped with her partner gerado Abbruzzese who came from San Donato and was born March 1861

    It is possible that they left for Canada and then came to England. They married in Birmingham UK June 1885 when they were both 24 as far as we know no contact was ever made back home. I would love to see if this is true as its a family story that is so intruiging especially to my 84 year old Mother,

    I am visiting Italy in October and have been told there is still a family farm in Settefrati. My great grandfather was named Pietro Vitti (1887-1966) and he was married to my great grandmother Livia Vitti (Gentile) (1890-1982). My grandmother, Filomena Lopiano (1914-1995) was born in Settefrati on February 18, 1914 and I would like to visit the town and perhaps the family farm. How can I find additional information which will lead me to my Italian family? Is there a place to explore statistical records located nearby?

      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?

      • 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.
