Did you know?
The Pescara River runs through the middle of the city of Pescara. At one time, the area to the north of the river was called Castellammare Adriatico which became an autonomous community in 1807. The province of Pescara was created in 1927 from communities that belonged to the provinces of L'Aquila, Chieti, and Teramo. At the same time the city of Pescara was reunited with the city of Castellammare Adriatico, under the name of Pescara. If you are researching ancestors in the city of Pescara, you may encounter a problem. When records were filmed, it seems likely that the records from the original Pescara dating from 1866-1929 may have been missed. Families that lived in Castellammare Adriatico can be traced to more modern times, but those on the south side of the river usually cannot be found. Correspondence with the Tribunale of Pescara may be necessary at this point.
