I am assuming you know the town or area in which the family lives.
Otherwise, you are going to need to identify this information to locate family in Italy.

http://www.paginebianche.it/index.html

cognome=surname
dove=town/region
cerca=search

this will bring up a listing of all surnamed persons. Good Luck!!

Have you placed the immigrant ancestor on a ship manifest?
May reveal the exact town of interest.
Off the top of my head......do you by chance mean ABRUZZO??

it might be abruzzo, i can't seem to find much, i'm new to all this and i don't speak italian, so it seems to be harder. all the sites i've seen so far that are in english want some outragous price for membership.

If you need us to get you started we can.......up to you.
Genealogy is best done by working backwards, one generation at a time and obtaining source documents on each ancestor.
Every record obtained will further your research and provide further clues to follow, as well as verifying the relationships.

Who was the immigrant ancestor? What was his spouses name? Children?
Do you know his or her parents? Did he have siblings, Aunts, Uncles or cousins in the US? Where did they reside?

Have you obtained any documentation? By answering these type of questions will allow researchers to access records which may reveal the exact town of origin.

Currently, there are 20 address listings for Abruzzo alone.

Pure speculation here without confirmation of records found.....
but note the address on this record, same as 1930 census, also the birthdate matches the death record found by Nuccia.......nearest relative listed as Anna Savini.......
