    Records show my Grandfather Guissepe was from Feroleto Antico. I was wondering if I could get anymore info on the town and family? His father’s name was Angelo. Guisseppe was born abt. 1893.

    My wife’s grandfather was Giovanni M Celli, who was born in Penne, Abruzzi, Italy in 1885. He immigrated to the United States in 1905 apparently from Feroleto according to the NY passenger list for the ship “Lazio” which departed from Naples. He might have been working in Feroleto as a tailor. Do you have any records of a Giovanni Celli in Ferolato for that time period?

    I had the wonderful opportunity of visiting beautiful Feroleto Antica in May 2014 and visited the Comune – Records and found the name of my grandmother Virigina Fazio born in 1876 and the names of some of her brothers and sister. I should also have looked up her husband Antonio Curcio who was approximately 20 yrs. older than she – probably born in Feroleto Antica around 1856. He was a tall man and very handsome. Is there any chance of finding anything else about him?

    Virginia Fazio (my grandmother) was sent to the states by her brother to marry Antonio Curcio. She arrived her in 1914 and my mother was born a year later in 1915. Antonio Curcio i believe was already here and had a prior marriage.

    The people in that town could not have been nicer and more helpful. In fact, the policeman who directed us to the town records was himself married to a Fazio.

    I would love to return to see if i could locate any Curcio’s or Fazio’s who may be related.

    I am having a hard time finding a marriage record for Pietro Perri born May 12 1872 in Feroleto Antico, Italy. I found something stating he was married in Polverini in 1899. His wife’s name in the USA was Concetta Mary Maruca but i can’t find any record of her in Italy. Not sure where to go from here
