Giuseppe(Joseph)Fedele and Chiara(Clara)Perfetti, were both born in the small city of Chieti. Chieti is also in the Provence of Chieti in the Abruzzo Region of Italy. Guiseppe's parent's were Antonio Fedele and Franesca DiLano. Chiara's parent's names were Luigi Perfetti, and Rosa Paolini. Luigi was also born in Chieti, but Rosa was born in San Benedetto del Tronto a city north of Chieti, along the Adriatic Coast. It is a city known for its palm trees. Recently I visited Chieti and met some of my mother's family for the first time. I will never forget the wonderful experience I had with them. My cousins remember their grandmother and when they saw her picture, they called her Mama Rosa. They told me she visited her children spending serveral months with each of them. If traveling was as easy then as it is today, I feel that she would have come to the United States to visit her children here, too.
