It looks like I will just miss you in Campobasso. I'll be there from June 15th through June 22nd. The Feast of i Misteri will take place on June 18th this year. You should try to extend your stay for it. I understand that it's truly unique.

I had a chance to review your website. If my understanding is correct, Clemente di Tota (born circa 1853) and Maria Luisa Pietrunti (born circa 1853; m. 24 NOV 1877) are your 2GGP. They are also my 4C3R. If that is so, then you and I are 7C1R.

However, there is a discrepancy between your data and mine. If I correctly understand your website data, you have your 2GGF Clemente di Tota as the son of Pasquale Di Tota (18231877) and the grandson of Nicola Maria Di Tota (17821820). According to my data, Clemente di Tota is the son of Pasquale di Tota (born 17 MAR 1818 in CB; m. Anna Maria Villano on 23 APR 1842 in CB) and the grandson of Vincenzo di Tota (born 28 APR 1775 in CB; m. Maria Giuseppa di Zinno on 06 MAY 1809 in CB). Relevant sources include the marriage record of Clemente di Tota and Maria Luisa Pietrunti [FHL Film 1733313, MATRIMONI 1877 Numero 96, 24 NOV 1877] and the processetti documents submitted for the marriage of Pasquale di Tota and Anna Maria Villano [FHL INTL Film 1443304, PROCESSETTI 1842 Numero del Reg. 20, 30 APR 1842].

The above Ahnentafel Chart is based on my working database and, while that database is fully sourced, I encourage that all data be checked. If you are interested, I will forward you an Ahnentafel Chart that includes my sources (it was too lengthy to list them here there were 10 pages of sources). If so, please send me an e-mail and I will forward the Chart. Surname variations refer to the family lines and not necessarily the individual entry.

One interesting point: I believe that you are a direct descendent of the last barons of Campobasso! Although there is some historical disagreement, the feudal control of Campobasso probably began with the reign of Roberto d'Angiò. The first feudal family universally recognized was the Monforte-Gambatesa (c.1300-1495) Castello Monforte is named after this family. You will certainly see it when you're in Campobasso. The Monforte family was followed by: Capua (1495-1559); Gonzaga (1559-1638); Vitagliano (1638-1639); Carafa (1639-1740); and Romano (1740-1806). Salvatore Romano was a man of honest means who was declared baron by popular acclimation after the campobassani overthrew the reign of the Carafa.
