Searching for Fermani family in Orsonga, Chieti, Italy

Postby mcoccaro » 07 Aug 2013, 03:53

I have seem to hit a brick wall and was wondering if anyone could help me go a bit further...


Joseph Gaetano Fermani
Birth
28 Mar 1879
Orsogna, Chieti, Abruzzo, Italy

Death
9 Nov 1971
Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States

Is there a way to figure out who his parents were?

Also searching for Nicoletta D'Angelo from Orsonga, Chieti, Abruzzo, Italy (this is his wife). I believe her mother's maiden name is Fosca(o)? Would there be any records of their lives in Italy online? Or what her father's name could be? I think she was born abt 1881. She immigrated to the US 1906/1907? She settled in the Philadelphia area.

Thank you for any possible leads or advice.

Sincerely
Marni

I believe that Nicoletta and Joseph Gaetano Fermani married in Italy. They had at least two children in Italy before they came to the US. Teressa born around 1903 & Peter born around 1904.
