    I am looking for relatives in Corleto. My grandfather, Giuseppe Eduardo Vitale, known as Pep, was born in Corleto on June 21,1898, to Pietro Vitale and Maria Mentauro. He had a brother named Luca and a sister named Angela. He came through Ellis Island in 1921, after serving in the Italian army during WOrld War 1 and being a POW in Austria during the last months of the war. He had an uncle had named Nicola, who came to the US to work in the coal mines of West Virginia and Pittsburgh, Pa. Pietro and Nicola had another brother, named Miguel, I think, who stayed in Italy. Nicola also had a wife and several children he left behind. I believe that the descendants of Miguel Vitale might still live in Corleto. Appreciate any information.

    I am looking for any information on the Toce family genealogy, in general, and specifically on

    Domenico Antonio Toce b 1848, spouse Antonia Maria D’Anza
    Paolo Nicola Toce b 1810, spouse Maria Teresa Montano
    Domenico Maria Toce , spouse Barbara deBona

    I believe Domenico Antonio moved to Craco, not to far away, at some point.

    Any information on the origin of the name, Toce, and how it may be related to Tocci would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Hello,
    I am looking for any information on my grandfather James Vincenzo Phillippo. He was born in 1873 in Italy. Long story, after both his parents died, an uncle took him and put him on a boat (in Naples maybe?) and left him there alone and with no money. The boat sailed and took him to New York City. This was in 1983-84 so he was around 9 or 10 yrs old. We believe the spelling was changed at this time from Filippo to Phillippo at this time. He eventually ended up in an orphanage where he was put on one of the Orphan Trains and taken in by a family in southern Illinois where he grew up, met and married his wife and had a family. He never talked much about his family or Italy except to mention he had 2 older brothers who were in their early teens. DNA testing has led us to others descended from this surname to this town, so wondering if anyone has any connections, information or help to find this one little lost boy. Thank you so much.

    Hello,
    Looking for any information on the DeStefano family (Francesco Maria was my Nonno, Domenico was his father) and the Bonadies family (Ana Lucia was my Nonna). My father and one aunt followed cousins to the Hartford CT area in the 60’s, all other family remains in Italy.

      Hello, I am a Bonadies from Hartford. Our family immigrated from Corleto shortly after 1900. There are several families in Hartford that came from this area of Italy around the turn of the century.

  13. Grace says:

    Hello, I am trying to find out information about my great great grandparents. I was told that they were from Corleto Perticara. Their names were (please forgive my spelling errors) Giuseppe and Isabella (Bonadies) deBona. Their son, Gaetano (Antonio) deBona left Italy and arrived in New York, USA in May of 1886. I know that Gaetano was a confectioner (candy maker) in Hartford, Conn and I think he learned that skill from his father. Gaetano was born in July 1857. He recorded his birthplace as Corleto Perticara.

    My Grandfather, Rocco Lombardi was born in Corleto Perticara in 1882. He was the youngest child and emigrated to the U.S. in 1909. His Parant’s names were Nicolo Lombardi and Catterina Lamberti. I understand that Lombardi is a very common name in Corleto Perticara. Would birth records for my grandfather be found in the Commune or would I have to contact the province in Potenza?

    Thank you

    Is there anyone who does church record research in Corleulto Perticara?

  17. Glenn says:

    Hi,
    I have a cousin Celeste Maddaluno Holly who reads Italian and has already located several marriage certificates of my grandparents in Corleto Perticara. She and I are related to the Maddaluno, de Bona, Pallotta, and other lines in Corleto as well as the Urbino family in Potenza. My grandparents changed their name from “Russo” to “Rossi” upon immigrating to the USA.
    My goal is to find church records showing the names of Celeste’s and my common ancestors.
    Best regards,
    Glenn Rossi

    • Antonella says:
