    My grandfather was John B. Stirpe. He was born in 1890, father’s name was Anthony and his mother was Frances Montana. My grandpa came to the US in 1905. I believe he had 2 sisters. Theresa and Mary. I remember Aunt Mary visiting with her 2 daughters. They lived in Binghampton NY and we lived in Ogdensburg NY. We all lost contact. Would love to connect to any relatives.

    My wife s great great grandmother was called Maria Pini and she was born in Torrice on the 18th march 1813 . She got married to Giovanni Obertelli in Morfasso Piacenza on 15th of October 1839 . Some time after that they moved to England and settled in Carlisle where she died in 1895 . We would be very grateful if anyone has any information on the Pini family . Thank you

    Good morning,

    I am looking into anything regarding the families of Luigi Trasolini or Raffaella Raino. My grandfather was Elmo Trasolini and I’m interested to see if there is any family still in Torrice, Frosinone

    I believe my father and his family are from the Torrice area. Last name of Savo….my grandfather is Augustino Savo, my Father (1 of 11 children) was Bonaventura Savo born in 1925. My grandmother’s name was Luisa Paniccia. On my mother’s side I am not sure if they are from this area as well….my grandfather was born in 1894….Pietro Mastracci and my grandmother was born in 1904 Rosa Magliocco….any info would be appreciated. Thank you.

    • Ottavio says:

      My grandmother was Lucia Paniccia born in Torrice in 1908. She married my grandfather Lorenzo Liburdi in Torrice. My great grandfathers name was Rocco Paniccia and he married Maria Testani in possibly the 1880’s. I was trying to find the names of my great great grandparents but hit a wall.

  5. James says:

    My grandfather was born in Torrice on October 30,1879. That is all we know. On his death certificate his parents were listed as James and Francesca Testani. That is probably a guess as he never really spoke of his early life. All we know is that he was raised by an aunt. His name was Giuseppe Testani. Any information would be appreciated as I have hit a wall in my research

  6. Lisa says:

    I am looking for any living relatives of my grandfather, John Onorati who came to the US around 1920. He was born in 1904 and lived in a town called Torrice. Any help would be appreciated.

  7. Angelo says:

    My grandfather’s name is Angelo Detorrice. He was born in Italy in a town between Rome and Florence. His last name might have been modified when he landed in America. He was born around 1933. Any info would be much appreciated. Thank you!!

    Searching Aristide DePersis Torrice, Frosinone, Italy e Giovanna Celli or Spinelli (Nocera inferiore, Salerno, Italy) Please advise of the distance between those two comunes? Would I find their marriage record and births of their children in Bari Stato Civile? Mille grazie, Pia.

    • Chris says:

      My great-great grandfather was Aristide DePersis. Perhaps we are related? We should exchange information

      Best,

      Chris
