Appingnano is a town in the province of Teramo in the Region of Abruzzo...in other words the papers are right on both entries, in one entry they list the town, in the other entry the region.


Here's a link just to get you started with some basics

Appiginao is a Frazione of another comune both bearing the same postal code 64034. Go to www.nonsolocap.it and put in SAppiginano and you will see it is a part of another larger Comune. This has been answered in detail in your other inquiry here in. =Peter=

Dear Bobbo not to worry all of us started out like you at thebeginning. There is a book which you might find very useful and it is titled Italian Genealogical Records by Trafford R. Ciole and it costs about $40 oir you canborrow it from the library before you buy it. =Peter=

It matters little as to where you live if you wish to familiarize yourself with italian genealogy or USA genealogy so where you live is not indicative of anything/ it just might makes things easier to learn thats all. =Peter=
