uring the great immigration period of the late 1880s' to the early 1900s', numerous Italians left their homelands to seek a better life in the Americas'. Some of these Italian ancestors were from Ortucchio, which settled throughout North America and perhaps even South America. As of this writing, the most populated Ortucchian descendants are found in Pennsylvania, California and Nevada.
This web page has been generated in hopes that other descendants of Ortucchio, living abroad, will want to add their information to this web site, or perhaps have it serve as a starting point for their search of Ortucchian ancestry. In addition, it is probable that the people living in the city of Ortucchio, and surrounding areas will have access to the WWW and would want to provide information to the Ortucchian database. With this in mind, this web page is being dedicated to the commune of Ortucchio, L'Aquila, Italy.
