I saw your posting on the Abruzzi Forum today. I started a family search for the Pietroiacovo (a) last fall as part of a trip to Italy this coming summer. My father is Norman Peters – who is the grandson of Nunzio (Nick) Pietroiacovo – who is the son of Pietro and Carolina Pietroiacovo of San Polo Matese. Pietro was born in 1861 in SP and emigrated to the US in Sept 1888. I believe he initially joined Giacomo Pietroiacovo in Cleveland OH (who may be his father) – but in 1892 Carolina (she may be an Iezza or Vizzi) and her mother Angeline and my great grand father Nunzio joined them and went to Cumberland, Barron County, WI – and they were there in 1900.

By 1910 they had moved to Cleveland, OH - where they stayed – and where my great grandfather met Carmela Masiello (Carrie) – and the rest is history..

Carolina and Pietro (or Peter) had 11 children – most surviving to adulthood.

I have much I could share with you, if you are interested..

If you have any information on the Pietroiacovo(a) family – it would be greatly appreciated – I am at a mystery point and have not be able to connect the dots between the following men/women – who I think are siblings of my GG grandfather Pietro…

- Michele Pietroiacovo – born 1862 in SPM

- Nicola – born 1860 est. in SPM

- Giovanni – born 1865

- Antonio 1868 or 1859

- Maria/Mary – 1872

- Joseph – he ended up in Denver

- Domenico

- Crecenzo- -1880

- Concetta

I know that many married D’Egidios, Capras..

My great grandparents Nick and Carrie Peters (they changed the name about 1920 to Pietro and then again to Peters) had five children – my grandfather Norman W. Peters Sr. died at the Battle of the Bulge on January 13, 1945 and my father Norman was his only child. Of those five children they had only three grandchildren – my dad, and my cousins Peter and Norman who are the children of Peter Peters – their oldest child.

My father turns 65 on Monday and the trip this summer to SPM and Ripalimosani (where is mother’s family is from) means quite a bit to him because he never really knew his father and wants to reconnect with whatever family he has.

Thanks for reading my babble…I am getting the planning underway and cannot wait!

Best regards
