I hope you have found this site interesting. My own interest developed from my research into the community in which our family lived in Manchester, UK. This was Ancoats, Little Italy, which forms the basis of my other site,

Below are some links to help you in your genealogy search on the surname Rea. A good route is to write to the parish church of your communi of origin; for a small fee they may research your family tree. Also try the Town Hall of Arpino (Tel: (Italy) 0776.85211).
