Pocetti Family From Fossacesia,Chieti,Italy

Postby pocettiguy » 26 Mar 2014, 01:33

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.

The village of Villa Scorciosa belongs to the municipality of Fossacesia, in the province of Chieti, region Abruzzo. :-)

The LDS Family History Center has microfilms of the Fossacesia records from 1809-1865...

To get Attilio's birth record, you will need to write directly to the comune.

hi Guy!

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!

If you have some infos to share, please contact me I would love to know more about my family!
