I am looking to send several form letters to possible relatives in Petrizzi - I found their names and addresses on www.paginebianche.it - I would like to send it in both English & Italian and my Italian is pretty weak - can someone help?
My name is Marianne Baiocchi, and I am a 3rd generation Italian-American. Presently I am researching my family history. My great-grandmother was from your town. I am looking for any information that may help me in my research. Perhaps you, too, were related to her. Unfortunately, I do not know much about this person. I only know her name and limited information given to me by my grandmother, her daughter.
My great-grandmotherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s name was Bettina Condo. Her fatherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s name was Giovanni Condo and her motherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s name was Rosa Piperata. She was born and raised in Petrizzi. She had two sisters Filomena Condo (Sestito) and Maria Condo (Alia) and a brother Francesco Condo. Bettina was born May 27th, 1882. She married Antonio Paravati. She emigrated to America and arrived in the USA in November 1907. She and her husband, along with her sisters and their husbands, lived in Philadelphia, PA, USA, until her death on September 9th, 1931. Her brother Francesco came to America for a period of time but did return to Italy and is now buried there.
If you were related to this woman through your own family, then I would appreciate any information about her, our shared family, or any relations still living today. I am especially interested in learning more Please feel free to reach me at my mailing address or email address listed below. Under my address I have listed the other people to which this letter was sent. Please pass along this information to other relatives that may not be listed below but whom you feel may be interested in helping me.
I apologize if this letter has reached you in error if we are not of the same family, but wish you and your family well!
