Santilli surname from Popoli

Posted by Diane Zaino Smith on March 06, 2011 at 15:30:05:

What town would the SANTILLI surname originally stem from ? My grandmother was a Santilli and although she lived in Popoi when she married (where my father and siblings were born), I have been having difficulty finding information about one of his sisters, Luisa, in the hope that I can locate any possible descents. I have been to Popoli several times searching the records, both Church and Comune, and there is no record of her birth (1800's), nor of her marriage - I am still trying to solve this mystery, and am wondering if, perhaps, my grandmother went to her home town to stay with her own mother prior to the birth, (since her husband was in the King's Army and might have been absent). I would like to search that town's birth records - once again, I am researching the surname SANTILLI and the TOWN of ORIGIN where that name origianlly stems from. I would appreciate any leads/advice - thank you.
