You might wish to go to the nearest family history library of the Mormon church at www.familysearch.org for location nearest you where you can rent microfilm of the civil records of her family back to 1820 up to 1902 which will be found under PIANA DEGLI ALBANESI. The fee is about $5.00.

There is a companion book DiscoveringYour Italian Ancestors by Lynn Nelson which is a great assist to the research of the microfilm records.

If you wish youcan also write to Piana Dei Greci if you wish free of charge for documents, Please let us know so we can direct you. There are form letters in Italian for this activity. Please let us know. =Peter=

No, however my family is related to Quartuccio on my maternal grandfather side. The following link with be a wealth of information regarding Piana ancestry. My grandfather(Leonardo DiChiara) mother was Giovanna Quartuccio. Can you give me a little more info on that line, maybe we can help each other. http://www.contessaentellina.net/piana/Piana.txt

Thanks

Was Giovanna a Quartuccio by birth or by marriage? Was Leonardo known by another name? Or did he have brothers?
