    We are visiting Figline in 2018. I am gathering as much info as I can.
    Information on their parents would also be helpful: Guiseppe Montemurro & Anna Petronilla Crocco…Pasquale Greco & Barbara Crocco

    I am doing family research on the following names: Cerenzia (also Cherenzia) and Bianco.

    Philip/Fillipo Cerenzia
    his wife, Maria Bianco
    Maria’s brother, Giuseppe Bianco
    Maria’s sisters – Rose/Rosa and Louise/Louisa
    Giuseppe’s wife, Anna Vettre
    Giuseppe’s daughter, Assunta Catarina
    Rose’s husband, Gabriel Greco
    Louise’s husband, Ruffino Annibale
    Philip may have had a brother, Emilio.

    I have a lot of information upon their arrival in Canada (Ontario), but almost nothing of their history in Italy, though I do have multiple sources that link them back to Figline V. Also connected last names include Greco, Vettre, and Ammendola.

    I’ll be happy to share what I have with anyone who needs it, or who might be able to help.


    • Ken says:

      Chris, don’t know if you are the same Chris from the Figline V. facebook site. I think we are working on the same family history. My family names are Politano, Vetere, Porco, Amendola, and Spadafora. All from Figline V. but having difficulty figuring out all the connections. Happy to share everything I find. One thing that keeps coming up is the Canada connection. I have photos of family (some unidentified) taken in Parry Sound Ontario. I think the photos were taken when they first arrived and then they made their way to Utah where they remain today.

        Hello Ken,

        I’m just starting out on the history of my family, but I’m not entirely sure where to start, especially since my grandfather passed. His surname is Spadafora (Adolph). Parents were Carmine (Charles) Spadafora (1882-1932) and Theresa (also spelled Tresa, Teresa in other documents) Spadafora – maiden name Vetere (1889-1968). Was wondering if you could help me get started? I’d appreciate any help you can give me.

  10. Thomas says:

    Trying to find information on my grandfather Alfredo Soda born abt 1898 In Figline. He arrived in New York November 8th 1900 at the age of 2 years old. He came with his mother Teresina Soda she was about 26 years of age. The only thing that I know of at this point is that Teresina’s husband was Anotonio Lupo. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1895 and Teresina and Alfredo came 5 years later. Alfredo became Alfred Lupo. So I am Assuming Teresina is the biological mother, I cant find any records of Alfredos birth online. Would love some guidance on the if possible.
