I am looking into information about my surname Pocetti. My great grandfather was Attilio Pocetti born 1893 In Fossacesia. I know he had at least one brother Emilio Pocetti, and I believe their father was one Camillo Pocetti born approximately 1860 in Fossacesia. Most if not all "Pocetti's" seem to be from Fossacesia Italy. But I have no records that traces the Pocetti family back any further, and I seem to be at a dead end. Any Information on the Pocetti Surname Is appreciated. They seem to be based in the Fossacesia/Lanciano area of the Chieti province in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Thanks.
I did some research a couple years ago, and it seems like all the Pocetti's are from chieti commune. But a lot of the immigrated in America early 1900's. I used to have a record of passengers on a boat with my great grand mother on it. If I remeber her name was Matilda Tempestosa. She was married to Nicola Pocetti, my great grand father. They had 3 kids I think, Nicolas, Ernest and a girl witch I dont remeber the name. They went trough Boston, to land in Montréal, where I live. The girl was the oldest one and she immigrated with her mother to meet whith Nicola who was here first to settle.
Hope it help!
