Subject: Greetings from Chicago...USA
I was very happy to find this site about Celle.
I am the daughter of Rocco Nicola Stefanelli. My
father is 88 years old and has many memories from his
childhood in Celle. He was born there and
lived there until he joined the Italian army.
The Stefanelli family lives in Canada and and in the
United States. Their roots and relatives are
from Celle. My grandparents were Cristina
Miniceli and Michele Stefanelli. They lived in
Celle until the late 1970's. They had 4
children that lived. They were Vincezo,
Nicola, Antonio and Maria. They had 2 daughters that
died when they were young girls and lived in Celle.
They daughters names were Erminia and Yolanda.
I have not been to Celle since 1960. I have
many pictures from my visit. Would you be
interested in having these pictures for your website?
I also keep in touch with the D'Aloia family who are
also from Celle. They are decended from
Filomena and Pierino D'Aloia. Their sons,
Gerbino and Pierino live in Chicago.
Thank you for doing such a good job of showing what
life is like in Celle. The pictures of the
town taken from the air are beautiful.
Hoping to hear from you. My Italian is so-so
but I can read Italian very well if you would prefer
to write back in Italian.
