Geneology of Tollis

Posted by Dan Tollis on November 29, 2004 at 01:08:33:

I would like to know if any one knows who I could contact in Pacentro or otherwise to find out who my great-great grandfather was and research farther back into my family tree. My grandfather was Pasquale Tollis, my grandmother was Anastasia (nee DiCicco). My grandfather came to U.S. through Ellis Island and is in the Ellis Island registry. I believe he came to the U. S. in 1924. My great grand father was Joseph Tollis. He owned a carpenter shop in Pacentro. He first wife passed away at a young age and he remarried. Joseph's sons were, Pasquale, Orlando from his first wife and Camillo from his second. There are Tollises not only in Italy but also in England and in France. My goal is to trace the name to these contries. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I believe one of my great grandfathers wives was named Adelina and her maiden name was Battaglini (sp?). Thanks to any one who can help.
Mary Dailey: I notice your postong from a year ago stating you have an extensive data base of Pacentro. This may help.
