Hi Anne, My name is Mitch Boocock, I am on email@example.com I live in New Zealand though I was born in England.
My great grandfather is Filippo Castrucci, born Alvito at about the same same time as Maria. I would be able to tell you exactly when except that I am away form home on business at the moment.Anyway Filippo moved to England in 1914, changed his name ( as the Italians were fighting with the Germans ! ) and became Filippo Phillips. Now he had a son Frank, and Frank named my mother Katherine Christina ( seeing the possibilities ?). Of course they are dead so I can't ask, but I am really wondering whether Maria and Filippo aren't closely related and we might be on to something. I have a photo of him as I have his entry visa to England, so if you had a photo we might see something ?
I will wait to hear from you, wish I had your email address !!!
