  • My grandmother and her sisters (Amalia, Vincenza, Allesandrina, Lydia, ??) emigrated to Boston from Terracina. They came about 1904. Their surname was SODI. We have never found that name listed to them at all. I see her brother a few years later entered as Cesare Sodi. I find "LODI" with first names very similar to grandmother and her sisters coming from Terracina. Does anyone know...

  • Oh, OK, funny. I once was contacted by an attorney in Florida who asked me why my grandfather left his grandmother in Italy and came to Boston and married my grandmother while still married to his grandmother AND left his child behind in Italy. LOL My grandfather did no such thing!!!! It was another Guiseppe Saccoccio from Itri. LOL From: Linda Peloquin To: FraDiavolo@^$1 Sent...

  • Are Guiseppe and Benedetto both Saccoccio's? Jeez, those names got around. My grandfather was Guiseppe Saccoccio and his sponsor here in Cambridge, MA, was Benedetto Saccoccio.

  • That is awful. Most of the early records really were church records though, correct?? I can see how municipal records can be destroyed since there would probably have been one repository but there must have been several churches there in Itri. In fact, I have seen the names of several. As an aside, when I was in Terracina years ago people pointed out where the Americans bombed the...

  • Itri, Gaeta, Fondi and Terracine all touch, don't they?? Extrememly close so I can even envision someone from Itri saying he/she was from Gaeta since it is more of a city, just like someone from Cambridge might say he/she is from Boston.

  • I think we need Prof. Louis Gates to get on this pronto. LOL Woundn't that be nice though? Ironically I could trace mother's family back so much further and they emigrated here from Muro Lucano, state of Basilicata, Province of Potenza. Muro is a village carved into the Appennine Mountains and is extremely remote. How is it that I could trace back to 14th century there without much...

  • Did you know that there is a Maria Civita Saccoccio from Itri on Facebook?? Perhaps you can correspond with her or friend her??

  • Well, we certainly have had Civita's in the line. Unfortunately, on the Saccoccio side I more or less hit dead end after great grandparents. Grandfather Saccoccio came from Itri about 1905 and settled in Cambridge, MA, via Saco, Maine. He only had one brother whom he left behind in Itri. That brother was named Angelo. His parents died in Itri in a carriage accident well before he...
