263Re: Just joined the group!
- Feb 28, 2007Hi all! My husband Val is from Itri - we live in FLorida - having
moved from Cranston! Family still are there - cousins - Parrillo's --
but most of the DiCrocco branch are all still in Itri - we visit
every year - and as I mentioned before to the group, we have tons of
photos of old and new Itri -- and surrounding area - also many photos
of the gravestones of Itri and Campodemele! I am actively working on
the family research and have several generations now back to late
1700's in a few instances! Saccoccio is in there somewhere as is
Ciccone, Sinape, and many others - Val was friends with a Tony Del
Bove. Anyway if I can help anyone with names and photos, let me know!

I do think we are related. My grandfather had many first cousins in
Providence and Cranston.
