I am researching my grandparents, Filippo and Maria Teresa (Orlando) Savitti, who were born in Lanciano about 1867 and 1875. They came to New York in 1897 and 1898.
I believe that Filippo's brother Raffaele, stayed in Italy. Raffaele was married to Giovina Mammarella and 3 of their children Teresa, Donato, and Alfredo came to the US. Teresa married Guiseppe Colacioppo. Donato was married to Anna Pace. Alfredo was married to Antonetta. Another son, Nicola, stayed in Italy. I have met his grandchildren Antonietta, Rita and Paolo and their families during 2 very short visits to Lanciano. I would love to hear from other cousins and maybe get to meet them sometime too.
Please reply if you have any information. I am happy to share my information with you.
