Ferri Family Genealogy Forum
My grandparents were Giovanni & Santa Ferri. They came from the town of Introdaqua, in L'Aquila Italy, in the province of Abruzzi. Introdaqua is located next to a big town called Sulmona where my mother comes from. Many Ferri's live in this area. My grandparents came to America in the early part of this century (20's I think) and settled in East Boston, Mass. They later moved to Revere, Mass. Their children were Gina, Feliciano (Felix-my father) and Guilio. Gina moved back to Italy and married Frank Marrinucci (deceased). Gina lives in Introdaqua today and her son Angelo is a Doctor I believe practicing in Sulmona. Felix & Clara (Del Monaco)Ferri live in Revere, MA. My Brothers are John and Pat, both residing in Mass. Guilio and Rita live in Tacoma, WA. They have children (and grandchildren) across the U.S. I can update this and provide more info after I talk to my father this coming Christmas.
I was told there was a book written on the Ferri Family genealogy. A freind from Revere, Mass, James Ferri, no relation, had a copy of the book.
The Ferri name means "iron", and/or has the meaning of working with iron. "Ferro" is singular and "Ferri" is plural.
