Piazza Family from Vallelunga Pratameno, Caltansetta, Sicily

Postby piazza16428 » 21 Oct 2010, 14:35

I have kind of hit a road block and hopefully there is someone out there who can put me back on the correct road. I am trying to find out any information regarding my great-grandparents, specifically my great-grandfather Christopher (Cristoforo) Piazza. Here is the information that I know of him.
He was married to Concetta (Ciappa or Chiappa) I have seen it spelled both way. They were married about 1877 and had seven children all listed below with their information.
Concetta (Ciappa) Piazza immigrated to this country in 1913 along with several of her children and we do know that Christopher did not come to this country. We are trying to find information such as date of birth and death of Christopher and his cause of death. We would also like to find information regarding his parents and any brothers and or sisters that he may have had. We have been able to identiy on brother Lawrence (Lorenzo) who was married to a Carla Scarpinto and we have identified one of their sons Manfredo (Fred).
In addition we would like to invite you to visit our family tree at http://piazzafamiglia.tribalpages.com . Currently we have 440 names and we welcome you to take a look and see if any of the individuals on the tree are relations. If you would like to become a member of the site please feel free to send us an e-mail. We have also created a family website www.piazzafamiglia.com and here you will find photos of my grandfather and grandmother (Sam and Rosina Piazza) and their 13 children. Thanks for any help you can provide in finding information regarding our great-grandfather.
