Would you like to be in closer contact with the town of Sant'Eufemia a Maiella?
Patrizia Boccaccio works in the municipio in SEaM and is responsible for tourism. She is creating a mailing list to keep us up to date on the events in the town. You will receive occasional updates on events occurring in St Eufemia through Facebook - Sant Eufemia Nel Mondo. This initiative will hopefully generate a greater interest in our families' place of origin.

My name is Mark Camillo DiVecchio. As you may have noticed, My
middle name is from my father's father. I was born
Hospital in Beaver Falls, PA in 1948 - my parents lived in Aliquippa.
Grew up and
attended grade school and high school in Aliquippa, graduating in 1966.
Attended Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, graduating from
in 1970. Worked as a computer design engineer for Burroughs, National
Semiconductor, my own company (Silogic Systems)
and AMCC until
retiring in January 2003. I am wed to Sally Ann (Clarno) DiVecchio.
I started this web site to gather all the family information I have and that I can collect. The site, is "me" centric, that is, I refer to uncles, grandparents, etc with respect to me. My apologies in advance for doing that.I've been doing research for about 8 years and its been great fun. When I started, I told people that I was "finding dead ancestors." Now I tell them that what really happened was that I was "finding live cousins."
I entered all the genealogical information in the Personal Ancestral File v 5.0 (PAF5) downloaded from the LDS site http://www.familysearch.com.
The photos you will see on the main pages are thumbnails. They have been reduced in size and resolution so that they can be quickly downloaded. I actually scanned the photos at 1200 dpi, the best my scanner can do.
My original goal was to put all the high resolution scans of the photos up on this web site for anyone to download but I quickly exceeded my Disk Quota at my ISP. BUT if you are relative of me or anyone I mention here or in the GED file, I will be happy to send you this web site as well as scans of all the photos on a CD. Send me your relationship and name/address. Send it to

The main source of information for this web site are my
Pasquale "Patsy" DiVecchio and Benilda "Betty" Frazzini DiVecchio and
lost cousin, Kristi (Petro, diPietrantonio) Niedzwiecki,
info on my
grandmother's sister Maddelena and her descendants. Lucy (Pantalone)
Ricchio supplied a lot of information about her mother and father, my
aunt and uncle, Eufemia DiVecchio and Pasquale Pantalone. She also had
about my great uncle Nick diGiovine.
Dozens of newly found cousins around the world supplied names
dates and places.
I found a little information on the web, at the LDS web site, genealogy.com and ancestry.com.
The most valuable source of information about the 1800's was microfilm ordered through the LDS Church and their Family History Centers for Sant'Eufemia and for Caramanico. I've referenced the film number, year and index in the notes attached to the family tree. Napoleon Bonaparte mandated that civilian vital records be kept in Italy beginning in 1809 (Thanks!).
I tried to mark each piece of information with the source, but I was probably not 100% successful.
Here is a small portion of the diVecchia family tree. Just to give you an idea of where the main characters fit in. All the details are in the GED file and in the GED4WEB Family Tree.
Above is a portion of an older version of the graphical family tree. Click Graphical Family Tree or Graphical Family Tree (Part 2) for the full versions. It is small type to fit on a 8.5"x11" piece of paper when printed. When viewed with a graphics viewer, you can zoom in to read it. Here is a page with links to all the Graphical Trees.
My grandfather, Camillo

Pittsburgh, PA area. He brought his wife and two sons, Pasquale (my father)
