Any Information on Torre de' Passeri and Villa San Giov

Postby acman319 » 21 Oct 2006, 00:39

Hello. Does anyone happen to know or have any information on the small town of Torre de' Passeri, Pescara, Abruzzo, Italy? This is the town where my grandfather's parents were born in and they then came to America. I would love to find information on this town. Thanks!

I would also like to know if anyone knows or has any information on the town of Villa San Giovanni, Calabria, Italy. This is where my grandmother's parents originally were from. Thanks!
Ciao!

My mother and her family are from there also, she still has family there. I actually went there when I was a young teen and it was very small and seemed backwards to me but Pascara was awesome. I now would love to be there sitting in the court yard by my grandmothers window. What info did you want.

Our TOBIA family and our MONTOPOLI family are from Torre De'Passeri and Pescara! Would be interested in sharing family names and research on these two locations.

Hi acman319 & any other poster who maybe interested,

To trace family in Torre de' Passeri, you can order/rent the LDS films of the civil records (birth, marriage & death acts) for this town.

Here are the available films (1809-1910).
