: On my grandfather's immigration information (ship passenger list) his last residence is listed as what looks like Ortona e Mare. Does such a village / town exist? When I check the CAP listing it is not there. The immigration officer's fancy script handwriting is very hard to decipher, however. All I know is that the "e Mare" is absolutely what is written there.
Ortona is the name of the city, Ortona a Mare sometimes referred to because the lower part of the city is on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. It used to have beautifull beaches, when I was small, my family and I spent many summers by the shore.
If you want to read more about Ortona check out the site http://www.Chieti.com it's quite interesting.
