Her name is GINELLE O'Loughlin nee CASCARINO which you can locate at www.familysearch.org under ancestor search and may have to request additonal information from the Mormon Family History library nearest your home.

If you are certain that her place of origin in Italy is FROSINONE which is a city in its own right as well as a Provincial capital in the LAZIO region for many other towns and villages as well.Once your certain olf her origin in Italy then go to the same Mormon library or request her birth record -ESTRATTO DI NASCITA (long form with her parents names) and its free of charge from that town of origin.

The 1915 Avezzano earthquake, possibly the worst in modern Italian history, killed over 30,000 persons, including 96% of Avezzano's population

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1915_Avezzano_earthquake

Avezzano, the epicenter of the earthquake, is about 45 miles north of Frosinone - http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source= ... 8&t=h&z=10

Cassino and Sant'Elia Fiumerapido are your best bets although civil records for Cassino and Sant'Elia are not good for those who left before WW2 although Sant'Elia still has most of its parish records.
