This is a blog to connect Faeto descendants. Specifically those who are from immigrants who settled in Chicago. Please share your information. Our relatives were close friends...
I would like to have a copy of the Brief History of Faeto and Celle de San Vito. My grandparents were born in Faeto and emigrated to the U.S. in late 1800. They were Carmina Ruggiero and Vito Tangi. Thank you,Margaret Robertson 7 Summer St Binghamton, NY 13901
Thank you for this blog! My daughter, Emily, is in Faeto right now on a quest to find our relatives, the Benedetto's. Our family came to the U.S. at the turn of the 20th century from Turino, but it turns out they're all from Faeto.Thank you,Denice (Benedetto) Beal
Hi Denice, My grandmother was a Benedetto also. I have done some extensive research on her family. I was in Faeto in June of this year also. I have also met with an Italian interpreter at the genealogy headquarters at the Mormon church in Salt Lake City. My grandmother was Rosana Benedetto. She had 6 siblings. Her father was Bartolomeo Benedetto. He had 8 siblings. Most of my grandmother's family settled in Bridgeport, Ct.Please contact me if you think there is a connection.Regards,Jayne Paoletto Fullerton
Hi Jayne, my family also came from Faeto to Bridgeport CT. From naturalization papers my grandfather's parents names are Vincenzo Agostino Petitti and Giovina Pastore. Our name after coming through Ellis Island is spelled Petitte. I am just beginning to research my family from Italy. Respectfully,Diane
I don't have any names that correlate with yours. However, if you want to email me and have any dates, we can cross reference. I have a large family tree from the Ohio Petitti family that goes back to 1775, I suspect there must be a connection at some point to all the Petitti who came over. Most went to CT, Ohio or Chicago it appears. Sptilt@aol.com
