After posting my message I began reading all the messages on the board. I am excited to think that surely some of us have family from the same region. For clarification, my grandfather was born in Acquasanta near "San Benedetto Del Tronto" east of Ascoli Piceno in the Marche Region. I have visited Ascoli and the surrounding area a number of times and gathered a bit of information about my grandfather's family. Again, hope to hear from you all.
