As regards the documents for your citizenship, the books in the comune of Gessopalena were destroyed in WW2 bombings. You can obtain an authenticated copy only from the archive of Chieti, but it must be registered at the prefettura of chieti. The procedure requires at least 2 separate days in Chieti. Alternatively, if your consulate accepts a baptism certificate, you could write to the parish priest who has records. If you need help in obtaining the document, you can also contact our genealogy section at As regards finding relatives, you could write to the families with your surname currently living in Gessopalena
