Hi. I am trying to help my husband Daniel gather information on his family. His maternal grandfather was Peter Razzi the oldest son of Dominic Razzi who came to the United States from Abruzzi. He settled in Philadelphia but we know there is still family in Italy. Daniel's grandparents visited family in Abruzzi in the 1980's. His grandfather passed away in 2004.

Update from Forums' Editor
Since the civil records have been made available online at antenati.san.beniculturali.it/ it is now possible to ascertain that:
- Immigration record of August 31st, 1912 has Razzi Pietro, 28, born in Giuliano Teatino (province of Chieti, very near to Pescara).
- Record of birth no. 36 img 14, 28 June 1884, son of Giuseppe, 40 years old, and Maria Lombardi.
- Aside marriage is recorded to Maria Giovina Centofanti on 1 Oct 1908 (1905?)
