The immigration is very ancient, to allow Italian families to connect to your line you need names of parents for both Rosina and Vitale. On the De Cristofaro line, there is no family of that name in the phone directory, but there are 10 families in Vasto, which is today almost connected to San Salvo (a little distance to the north) and some may be descended from Rosina's brother. As to the sister Caterina, you need to find who she married, and for this too you need the help of the Civil Records, available either in the archive of Chieti, the Comune of San Salvo or the LDS microfilms.
Are you aware of these Ellis Island records and may they be related?:
- Teodoro Bevilacqua 26 years old from San Salvo, imm. 1902 directed to brother in NY Morris Avenue
- Vincenzo Bevilacqua imm 1911 46 years old from San Salvo, directed to cousin Antonio in NY
