Pizzonese in France

Posted by Wendell Murray on March 15, 2004 at 16:58:55:

My great grandmother, Maria Cristina Di Benedetto, from Pizzone lived for a time with her children in Chateaurenard, France, near Avignon during the early 1900s. Apparently, there was a large group of Italians living in this area at the time. Cristina's daughter Maria Di Julio married a Frenchman named Gianotta or Janota (spelling uncertain) and remained in France when the rest of the family came to America. I know Maria eventually had six daughters. Any information about the Italian community in this part of France would be of interest.

Thanks,
Wendell
