Hi John,

What kind of information are you looking for? What years are you looking for - pre 1900? Have you ordered microfilm from LDS?

Regards,
Elizabeth

Hi John
I've provided you with the links for the LDS films available for your search. Write down the film numbers that you'd like to view then find a Family History Center (FHC) nearest you so you can order the films for viewing. It takes about 2 to 4 weeks to receive and the cost is about $3.75 per film.

Link for locating nearest FHC
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library ... et_fhc.asp

Link of for Perugia
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library ... umns=*,0,0

Paglieta - Chieti
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library ... o+civile++

Salerno - not much for films but here's the link
http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library ... umns=*,0,0

Most films contain at least birth (nati), death (morti) and marriages. Some of the films you'll be looking for are limited. Hope this helps.

Regards,
Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth,

Thanks for the info. Actually, I researched all of the Films for Paglieta at the FHC in Broomal, Pa quite a few years back. As for Norcia and Sessa Cilento, they have not filmed these Towns yet. I sent an e-mial through FamilySearch.org asking if and when they knew when these Towns would be filmed but they said they had no info on when that would happen. I have quite a bit of info from the Records in Paglieta and am really looking more towards Norcia and Sessa Cilento but of course anything else I can learn from Paglieta would also be great. I have many Family Members still living in all three of these Towns and have had their help over the years but it's always nice to meet people who might be searching in the same towns and find something new that you never expected to find. Anyway, Thanks Again for your help and your reply, you never know what you might find with someone else's advice.

Saluti da Philadelphia,
John

Hi John,
I'm from Paglieta, and i can give you some informations about the surnames you are searching.
Tell me something more about what you want to now and I'm gonna try to help you.

Could you please help me in the research of my relatives?
The surname is Cericola and his first name was Alessandro, he arrived in new york in 1913, he had a doughter Grazietta, and a 2 son, alessandro jr and I don't remember the other name.
I guess now they are living in near Philadelphia.

Thanks

ciao da Paglieta

Hello John

My father has asked me to get in touch with a John Monzo from
Philadelphia. I google the name and found yours. I think you
might be the person my father is searching for. If you are you
are the nephew of my father's grandfather Antonio Vitelli from
Paglieta. Please let me know if you are.

cheers

Francesco

I can across this site today and found that you were looking for information on Alessandro Cericola from Batavia, NY. Based on what I've seen so far I may be the grandson of Alessandro. All of the Colangelos' names seem familar to me as well. If I can be of any service to you, or if you could let me know who you are maybe we can complete more of your research.
