Pertipola

Post by Amorano »

Hello! We are in the process of trying to trace back our ancestry. What we know is that there are 2 families from Calabria. My grandmother is from San Marello. My grandfather’s side is supposedly from a village called Petripola and we are told it is 7 miles away from San Marello. However I can’t find that and the closest thing I can think of is Pietrapaola. Can anyone confirm if there truly is a village of Petripola?

Welcome to the forum!

I am sorry that it has been so long for you to get a response.

The town of your Grandmother is San Morello, which is a hamlet of the comune of Scala Coeli in the Cosenza Province of Calabria.

If you take a look at the map I have linked for you, you will see the comune of Pietrapaola a few miles to the Northwest of Scala Coeli. So the correct town for your Grandfather's side is Pietrapaola. The spelling you had was most likely due to the "phonetic" interpretation of the pronunciation of the town.
