PAOLINIs in Pescara?

Postby tebo » 08 Jan 2006, 20:37

Hello:
I am searching for my grandfather's roots which I believe are in Pescara. His name was Adolpho Paolini and he came to America somewhere between 1900 and 1907, through Boston, and settled in Westborough, MA. He was friends with a family named Grandi in the Boston area - they may have sponsored him They were in the construction business. Adolpho was a shoemaker. He married my grandmother, Domeinca (Minnie) Moretti around 1907 in America. She was from Cugnoli and came to the states sometime in 1905-06. They met in Roxbury, MA and lived in Westborough all their lives.
Any information would be great!

I was so pleasantly surprised to get an email from this site - I had forgotten I posted this message and never saw the replies. This is very exciting for me and my family. I haven't had time to do much on this but will delve into it again with all the wonderful information provided. Thank you both!!
