Hope I can help... My grandparents Levantino and Santina D'Orazio were from Abruzzi. (they've both passed away, years ago) They had four children: Pasquale, Albino, Alicia, and Berrardo (Ben), my father. They're all in their 60's.They also have several cousins and we're all from the Buffalo, N.Y. area. My father's often mentioned that we have relatives in Australia.I don't really know specifics but I may be able to find out more. Feel free to e-mail me or pass this message on.
