Steve,

Tracing the Petrella's has been a challenge to say the least. The gap appears between 1890 and 1910 where there is very little to verify who was born when and where.

My wife's grandfather was Luigi Patrella from the Napoli area born in 1899 and came to CT in 1909 with his Brother Theodore. His Granfather was Sabitino Patrella from the Pratola area who had a brother Antonio. Luigi Patrella was their father (1792) from L'Aquila area who also had a brother Antonio.

The name Antonio was common in this line, Domenico Antonio, Giuseppe Antonio, Luigi Antonio, Antonio are examples in the line.


This is a link that has many Petrella names in Italy.
