I live part time in Italy and part time in the USA. My Italian relatives and I did a lot of work creating websites for small villages in Abruzzo Italy (e.g., http://campliteramo.wordpress.com). On each of the sites we placed links to other WordPress sites for nearby villages. We were told this was OK to do as long as we did not link to outside advertising sites. The sites contained many photos of these small villages. Unfortunately, we did not make copies of the WordPress sites. The sites were suspended for violating WordPress rules. I have received many emails from the folks in Italy as well as ancestors of people who emigrated from these small villages. They basically ask me, "What happened to the site for my village (Campli, Civitella del Tronto, Tossicia, etc etc). I do not know what to tell them. If possible I would like to get the sites back up and running. I can sign up for a Premium account if this would help. Failing this I would like to get access to the sites such that I can retrieve the photos, many of them unreplaceable, that were uploaded by the Italians to the sites for their villages. Thank you in advance for any assistance/advice/help/etc you might be able to provide.
ps Happy Columbus Day!!
