Hi I am looking for info on cemeteries in Formicola,Italy. My cousin will be visiting in May and would like to see if she could find where some of our ancestors are buried. Any info would be much appreciated. The surname we are most interested in is DeCristofaro. Most of our DeCristofaro ancestors were from Formicola and Pantelone? ( hope Im spelling that right.) Thank you again for any help.
Thank you! Your blog is wonderful Anna! I had no idea about how Italians were buried. Your article from September 2007 was very interesting! Most of my Italian ancestorers were peasant farmers so Im guessing we would have a problem finding their graves. They were not wealthy and didnt have much money. Thank you again for the information.
