Tuesday 07/13/2004 1:07:01am Name: Frank Farchione E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Homepage Title: N/A Homepage URL: http://N/A Referred By: Just Surfed In Location: Melbourne, Australia Comments: Hi, I'm Frank Farchione. I'm 31 years old and indeed I am of Toccolano background. My father(Antonio "Tony") was born in Tocco in 1943. He migrated to Australia in 1956. He is the 3rd youngest of 10 children. All his siblings live in Melbourne except for one of his sisters who now lives in another Abbruzzese town called Torrevecchia near Chieti (This sister did live in Melbourne for a number of years however and married and had children here). His parents (Giuseppe Farchione & Camilla Santilli) both migrated to Melbourne and have now passed on. My mother (Adele De Vincentis) was born in Tocco in 1950. She is the 2nd oldest of 4 children. Mum's mother (Concetta Smarrelli) died in Tocco when my mother was quite young. My grandfather (Fernando De Vincentis) remarried Lucia. My mother migrated to Australia with her family in 1963. Her youngest sister, Concetta was brought up in Melbourne but now lives in Tocco. In 1993 while I was attending Latrobe University in Melbourne, I met a girl who eventually became my wife. Incredibly, her parents were also born in Tocco. Although there are many Toccolani in Melbourne this was a strange coincidence. My wife (Elly Lanza) is the daughter of Eustachio Lanza & Gabriella Marino.

How do I go about getting a copy? I am very interested, but I understand you have several thousand people wanting the same thing every day. My great grandfather was : Eustachio Lombardi (B. 29 Dec. 1885 in Tocco da Casauria). His father Vincenzo Lombardi (unknown history- Eustachio's oldest son is still alive and told me he thought he remembered Vincenzo visiting family in Milan) and mother Maria Rischitelli- you said you had found a death act on her dating 1893 with a declarer named Carmine Lombardi, possibly a brother to Vincenzo. I am very interested in getting a copy of the death act and whatever else I can find. I would also like to have a copy of Eustachio's birth and marriage act, with other documents attached which you had also found. His wife, Annunziata Coia born also in Tocco. Her father Antonio Coia and Caterina DiDonato owned a macaroni shop in Pescara, do you know how I could get information on something like that? If you can find or know where I can find any information on Antonio Coia (born 1845 in Tocco) and Caterina DiDonato, I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP AND EVERYTHING YOU DO!

She married an older man named Eustachio Caiolfi and moved to Steubenville Ohio. From what I can gather her father's uncle was Domenico Stromei, making her a relative of yours. I too have been seeking information about him. I visited the town for the first time last summer. I wonder if you know of the scholar and Toccolose named Sandro Sticca, a professsor of romance languages at SUNY-Binghampton. He has written a small book about DS. It came into my possession some years ago via my grandmother, who had received it from Prof Sticca. You may want to contact him. He says he is in regular contact with the remaining Stromeis there. Good luck and I hope to hear from you again. greg critser
