Astrea,

I am presently viewing microfilm for the village of Collepietro. I have not yet seen the De Menna surname. If I do, I will contact you.

I suggest you go to this website to try to locate from which city your ancestors emigrated: http://www.labo.net/cognomi-en/intro.html


It will show you where in Italy the surname De Menna exists today and there are some--mainly along the Abruzzi coast. I suggest you then try the Italian white pages to determine which cities these are--you will need a list of Abruzzi communes (try the Abruzzo 2000 website). Use the white pages to make sure there are also DeLuca's in the same town. Then I would check the LDS resources to see if they have civil records for the town(s). Since you have a date for Anna, you should be able to find her birth record which will contain her parents' names and their ages. This will help you estimate where to look next. If you need more details on how to conduct your search, you may e-mail me personally at:
schlub@ite.net
