DiStefano's and Raimondo's from Molise Region

Postby christineschuller » 03 Feb 2012, 22:45

My Husband's Grandmother is Ann Scrima (previously known as Anna Distefano- born in Ohio in 1924. We know that her parents are Guiseppe DiStefano(born in Montorio nei Frentani in 1891) and Maddelena Raimondo (born in possibly Casacalenda??- somewhere in Campobosso, around 1891) We know they are 1st cousins. Maddelena's Father is possibly names Giovanni.
We believe Guiseppe's father is Micheal(Michele)DiStefano and his mother is Carmella ??

I am pretty sure all the records were lost in a fire in Montorio Nei Frentani. Do these names ring any bells for anyone?? We are kind of stuck on this one. What about Casacelenda?? Both towns are Campobosso, Molise Region.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Suanj,
Thank you for your reply! Do you know where I can find records prior to 1809?
