Subject: surnames,Rizzo,Rizza,Ciavattella,in Citta S'Angelo,Province of Pescara
My grandparents were Aniceto or Antonio & Anna Rizza,
changed to Rizzo sometime in 1910's.My father was
Laurentino,also went by Louis.There were also 2 other
sons,I believe Virgil & John or Giovonni. Also an
Antoinette,I believe a cousin. My grandmothers maiden
name was Ciavattella. I believe she had brothers,
Nicola,Angelomaria,& a possible Daniele. My grandfather
came over to America in 1905,but returned to Italy,
probably in the late 1910's or early 1920's. My father
came over in 1913 and joined his father.I believe Virgil
& John settled in the Philadelphia Pa. area.
They were all from Citta S'Angelo.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
