I am researching relatives in Italy in the Abruzzo region. My family was from Teatino Chieti. Our surname is Ioannisci; however, it was misspelled for many years, therefore when my father entered the port of Ellis Island it was spelled "Iovannisci", and that is how it remained in our family in the US. My maternal grandmother's surname was Napoleane, and she was originally from Fara.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Andrea
