Pacella's from Sulmona or L'Aquilla, Abrruzzi, Ita

Postby markrobinson » 04 Dec 2007, 19:17

Well, my mother just told me that she recalls that my Pacella surname (her maiden name) comes from one of these two towns in the Abruzzi region. Does anyone know of where I can do a surname search for that name in either of these towns? Is Abruzzi the province? We are really lacking in information regarding her maiden name so anything will help!
Thanks,
Mark

You can go here http://gens.labo.net/en/cognomi/genera.html

for a surname mapping site, that shows the distribution of your surname throughout Italy or you can go to the Italian white pages, www.paginebianche.it

There are two pages of people with the Pacella surname in Sulmona.

Put your surname under cognome and you can see who is in Italy currently listed with your last name.

Here is a link to the region of Abruzzo with lists of the provinces and towns within the provinces:

Hi Mark,

Pacella certainly does come from Sulmona because it's my mother's maiden name as well.

Give me some details of your mother (name, parents name, age) and I will ask my mother and sister.

Who knows we may be related!! :D

Hi Mark! Another town that you might want to look into is Pacentro. It's outside of Sulmona but is in the province of L'Aquila. My tree also includes Pacellas and we are from Pacentro. If you need any help, let me know!
