      Hi 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!

      named "Jackson" Saccoccio that my sister and I stayed with, I think
      in Providence. I think his daughter was Stephanie and wife, Josie.
      I do think we are related. My grandfather had many first cousins in
      Providence and Cranston.
