Purcaro-Raimo-Troisi Family History and Ancestry
We all grow up with the weight of history on us. Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies. - Shirley Abbott


This website is an ongoing project. The research traces my maternal grandmother’s line – the PURCARO, GRASSO, RIZZO, SCAGLIONE families of Ariano di Puglia, now known as Ariano Irpino; my maternal grandfather’s line – RAIMO and MASUCCI families of Volturara Irpina; and my paternal grandparent’s – TROISI and LOMBARDI of Altavilla Irpina.
