My Mother, Anna Delvecchio and Grandmother, Assunta
Petrarca were born in Castel Di Sangro. Assunta's Parents
were Emidio Petrarca and Nicoletta Capotosto. They had five
children, Luigi(?), Margherita, Lidia, Antonietta, and Assunta.
My Grandmother married Antonio Delvecchio and came to the
US with their children, Anna, Franco, and Lucio, in 1958.
Antonio's parents were Franceso and Tranquilla Delvecchio
from Pietransieri. Their children were Fernanda, Antonio, Italina,
Do any of these names sound familiar?
I cannot find a passenger list from the ship they traveled because
they came to the US in 1958 from Naples to Ellis Island.
Some of the Petrarcas went to Sao Paolo, Brazil in the early 1900's.
I would love to hear from someone who knows a link.
