Scerni - Looking for Raimondi & Ottaviano families

Postby DrGregC » 20 Oct 2010, 01:07

I am looking for my Raimondi & Ottaviano relatives in Scerni, provincia di Chieti, Abruzzo, Italy.

My grandmother, Rosa Raimondi, was born in Scerni in 1892. There were 6 children in her family. 4 came to the US. 2 stayed in Scerni - Luigi Raimondi and Nucella Ottaviano.

Luigi Raimondi had 3 children - Giovanni (b. 1910), Nino (b. 1914) & Eugenio (b. 1916). Eugenio married Fiorenza. They had a daughter, Paoletta.

Nucella Ottaviano had 3 children - Salvatore, Arturo & Minuccio.

My grandmother's parents were Eugenio (b. 10/23/1850) and Gesulina (Rossi) Raimondi.

The family name was originally Raimondi (no letter "y" in Italian). For some reason, it was changed to Raymondi . Even my Italian family years ago spelled it this way in their correspondence.

Growing up, I was always told that the Raimondi's were ruling class in Scerni. Imagine my surprise when I found that there was, in fact, a Palazzo Raimondi in Scerni. Apparently, there were Raimondi's in control of Scerni for over 100 years.

Any help in tracking down the Raimondi/Raymondi and Ottaviano families is appreciated.

Thanks very much to vj. Pagine Bianchi has given us a few names to work with - not specifically in Scerni, but in provincia di Chieti.

I was hoping that members on this board might have some specific knowledge of:

Scerni

Raimondi/Raymondi

Ottaviano


Thank you!
