Bastianelli & Pollastrelli families from Colonnella

Posted by Lisa D on March 08, 2014 at 02:35:15:

I'm trying to research my great grandparents who came from Colonnella Italy in 1913 to Pennsylvania. My great grandfathers is Alesandro (some records spelled Aleandro) Bastianelli born on January 1st 1889 in Colonnella and my great grandmother was Diodata Pollastrelli born November 16th 1900.

Any history regarding them or their parents/ siblings would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. Lisa D.
