Welcome to how Liza DeCredico's Pages Inspired me to search

___________

This page is to share some of the great personal emails and guestbook messages I get. I created my pages to inspire other's to follow in my foot steps and start searching for their relatives in other countries. Sharing how I went about my search helps others and these are some of the results.

Searching for families of Lancione

After reading Liza's story of her wonderful and very touching reunion with her family in Italy (if you haven't read it yet, you must!), I began to pursue my own more vigorously. An Italy white pages search through Liza's link yielded a name that I recognized from my family tree and I sent a card to this person in Abruzzo. He in turn gave it to their parish secretary who hand transcribed my Scanno ancestors back to the middle 1600's with an offer to do more later. I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I am to receive all of this. I was able to add another 50 names to my tree and am looking forward to corresponding with all of my cousins. Thanks Liza, Laura Lancione-Bearskin

Searching for families of Ciappa

Hello, I just wanted to write you a quick note to tell you that I wrote letters to 28 Ciappa's in Palermo, Italy. I got this idea from your helpful hints. I have so far received 8 letters. We have not made any clear connections but they are all very excited and conceder us cousins. It is a great experience and I thank you for sharing your ideas. Good luck in your search! Sincerely, Denise Ciappa Rider

Searching for families of Passante

hi LIZA, I thought your webpage was fabulous ! I actually came across it from Abruzzo2000.com, but that wasnt a choice on your form. Anyway, I think it's incredible, all that you have gone through. About a month ago, it occurred to me that I want to document my family history, and ask my parents questions about their lives, that I'm sure will come up when I have children. Since I am first generation American, Im sure my children will not see the beautiful Italian culture the way I did through my parents and grandparents, growing up. My parents are also from ABRUZZO. My mom from TOcco Da Casauria (PE) and my dad from Salle (PE). I have been there about 12-13 times. I am 25years old. My grandparents have all passed away, but part of me wants them to live forever........I have thought about writing a book, and doing what you have done........It seems like an extremely time consuming thing to do, but Im sure it will be worth it in the long run........ Right now I am at work, but I will definately go back to your website to read your long story about finding family !! God Bless You for what you are doing !!!!! CIAO :-) Anna A. Passante

Searching for families of Gualtieri

Hello, I enjoyed ALL your information and I really think I may be able to search further for my family roots with all your help. My Great Grandparents left Pratola, Peligna in 1903 and I do have information on them and their siblings. But I really would like to know if any relatives are still there.want to know names and dates-what are their occupations, where do they live I hope to find out soon-with your helpful information. I also do not just and how did the past generations live. I hope to find out the personal things-the family things. I will strike gold if any are still there that I may get to know & have pictures of. Thank you Vicki (Gualtieri) Burgess

Searching for families of Mrs.Brown

Hello Liza.. Just a short thank you to let you know that I think you have a site fantastico. You have done a lot of hard work to get this all together. Though I am French with ancestors from Normandy, I have a great interest in Italian culture. I play an accordion, (just button type that is so popular all over Europe) and most of my songs are Italian, both classical and traditional. I live in an area that brought in many Italians from all over Italian during the 1900. We are manufactures of granite memorials in our town. With several quarries. Most of the stone work now goes into buildings and inside homes. But I was lucky to have worked for my dad and others through the years and see the beautiful carved stones that the Italians made. We have a cemetery just full of exceptional carving of all kinds. People come from all over to see the beauty. Again, my congratulations on such a splendid site that you have put together, and thank you for sending it into my life. Regards, Irene Brown Barre, Vermont

Searching for families of Castellani & Fabbri Famiglia

Dear Liza, Thanks to your helpful pages on the internet, I have recently contacted relatives in Italy. I posted the names of my relatives on your search for surnames. As I was reading through them, I found an individual from the area that my grandfather came from. I sent her an email and told her of my search. At the same time, I sent a letter to a possible cousin with the help of your web pages. They wrote back to me immediately sending their own pictures of their beautiful family. The unknown "friend" I had emailed through your web pages actually called my relatives and gave them my email address. We are now sending emails almost on a daily basis! I am hoping that next year I will actually be able to travel to Italy to meet my long lost cousins! Thank you.

Searching for families of A thank you

Thank you Liza for the oppotunity you have given to those of us who perhaps may not have any other way of finding lost relatives or perhaps they even finding us.

Searching for families of DellaPietra

Liza, Spent more time than planned visiting and reading your site. I was unable to sign up in the guestbook. How else might I list surnames of relatives originating in Lanciano, Province of Chieti? Our family has names and dates into the 1860's but it is a limited listing. Appreciate your devotion to the Italian family and its history. Thanks. Rosalyn DellaPietra (East Rochester, NY)
