    I’m looking for additional information on my ancestors from Altavilla Irpina. My 2nd great grandfather Antonio Di Fazio was born in Italy in 1858. He married Carmela Lombardi in Altavilla Irpina, where they had at least two children Domenico, my great grandfather (born 1881), and Anastasia (born 1886). Domenico immigrated to the U.S.A. in 1905 and Anastasia in 1913. Thank you.

  4. Josephine says:

    My husband and I are planning to visit Italy soon and would like to find relatives from both or either side of my parents’ families.

    Dad is Oreste Reppucci and he married Anna Forte, both from Altavilla Irpina.
    They moved to Adelaide Australia.

    I think there are some relatives left in Altavilla, but I have heard that the Forte side of the family have moved to Milan.

  5. Emily says:

    Looking for information about my great grandmother, Annunziata Di Lucia (born Apr 20, 1878). She was married to a Joseph (Giuseppe, I assume) Parone, and they had a daughter, Almerinta Parone.

    I believe Annunziata may have been from Alta Villa or somewhere close to that. She may have had an older (half?) brother named Carmine Negri. She also had a brother Vito.

    I would love to find out info about Annunziata’s parents (specifically her mother’s name and death info), as well death info on Joseph Parone.

  6. Gina says:

    My great-great grand father Innocenzo Perillo, great grand father Vincenzo Perillo (Born 1858) and my grand father Frank Mario Perillo I am told were from Altavilla Irpina. They emigrated to Philadelphia however; I would like to know any family history of those who remained in Italy.

  7. Fran says:

    Hi, My grandfather, Romualdo Anargiro, was born, an abandoned child,in Benevento On June 29, 1870. Two days later he left there with his wet nurse, Rosa Contina, and moved to Altavilla permanently. He was raised ( my family says, adopted (or “adopted”), by parents named, Francesco and Rosaria ( last names unknown). He also had an abandoned and adopted brother(14 years younger), Carmine Amo, raised in the same household. I would like to know if there is any way of finding out any other information about any of these people who took them in, as both my grandfather and his brother spoke lovingly of their “parents”.

    Olá Senhores, eu moro no Brasil e estou montando a árvore genealógica da minha família; mas quando chego no Pai da Minha mãe, não consigo ir adiante, porque meu avô veio da Itália muito jovem (acho qeu aos 16/17 anos) e morreu aos 71 anos, quando eu tinha 4 anos de idade ! As informações que eu tenho dele, são as seguinte:
    Nome do meu avô: Miguel Rogerio
    Pai do meu avô.: João Batista Rogerio – natural de Altovilla Irpina
    Mãe do meu avô.: Maria Silvia de Marquez Rogerio – natural de Roma
    Meu avô Miguel Rogerio, quando faleceu, tinha 71 anos, portanto, estimamos que o nascimento dele tenha sido em 1893 (eu nao tenho a data correta).
    Meu avô, pelo que sabemos, era filho de pequeno lavrador em Altavilla Irpina. Acreditamos que naõ seja familia tradicional, de nome, portanto, acho que somente vamos ter informações da sua genealogia, a partir do Cartorio onde ele foi registrado. Aliás, tem como eu conseguir uma cópia da Certidão de Nascimento dele ? A Certidão de casamento dos pais dele ?

    I’m looking for information on Carmine Pasquariello, my grandfather, who came from Altavilla. We think he was born in either July 6th 1891 or 1881, because there’s some conflicting information (the later date is on his headstone, but the earlier date comes from immigration records). Would it be possible to get a birth certificate?

    I’m also wondering if my Pasquariello relatives might be related to Ralph Gregorio’s relatives–he just posted on this forum in August–since my grandfather’s oldest sister was named Angiolina Pasquariello (daughter of Carmela Iasiello and Francesco Pasquariello).

    • Ralph Gregorio says:

      I just read your message. I’m not sure if my grandmother was related to your grandfather. My grandmother’s father was a Carmine Pasquariello but her mother’s name was Michelina. I also believe her mother’s last namd was Lizza. Carmine had a sister and I think her name was Carmela.

  10. Ralph says:

    I would like to find out any information I can on my grandmother’s parents.

    My Grandmother was Angiolina Pasquariello, born September 28, 1896 to Carmine Pasquariello and Michelina Lizza.

    From the records I have obtained, they came from Altavilla (av) Italy.

    Thank you for anything you can provide;
    Ralph Gregorio

  12. Kelli says:

    I am looking for descendants of Saverio Caruso, my great-grandmother’s father, married Angelina. My mother says he had blue eyes, was a plumber, had seven children – Louise (Caruso) Indigaro is my great-grandmother. The first place they all lived was Somerville, MA, then Eleanor (Caruso) Nightengale, Carl, Emilio, Tripoli, all Caruso, moved to San Gabriel, CA. Amalia (Caruso) Brongia, Angelina (Caruso) Pasqualino, Antoinette Caruso stayed in Brookline, MA. Descendants still live in Boston. Please let me know if any of this sounds familiar, as we’ve been seeking to reconnect with family.

    • Dennis Pasqualino says:

      Hi Kelli: I tried to reply earlier, but I don’t see it. My mother was Angelina Caruso Pasqualino, and my brother Angelo and sister Diane remember Louise and Tom Indigaro and their kids (Angela, Marlene, Tommy), as well as Ellie, Carl, Mimi, and Trip, who all moved to California the year I was born (1954). We would love to connect with you. My daughter, Lori, is in West Hollywood now, and you can reach her through (she’s a singer). We’d love to share the history of the East Coast Caruso family!

    Can anyone give me some information…….please

  14. Lisa says:

    My Grandfather Salvatore Taccariello told us he was from Altavilla Irpina. He was born on January 1, 1902. He married Theresa DiTroia (b. 2/28/00) in America 4/25/25. My grandfather’s parent’s were Antonio Tacariello and Maria Tirri. It is almost impossible to find this surname in Italy today but not at all in this area. Is there any way to find info on them or possibly someone who is also researching these names?

    Researching Ferdinando DiNoia born 1881 wife luisa born 1891 emigrated with children Carmela and Amealia, to New York in 1912.

  16. Elaine Carbone says:

    Trying to find info on my great-grandfather, Vincenzo Carbone, born September 17, 1873. Married Maria Cesarini in 1894. Came to Boston, Massachusetts in 1895. He was a shoemaker. Maria was born in Altavilla Irpina. I am quite sure Vincenzo was also born there. I have no information on the family of Vincenzo Carbone. He died in Lynn, Massachusetts on April 20, 1920 at the age of 47 of the flu. Would love to know if any of my Carbones or Cesarinis are still in Altavilla Irpina or Altavilla Tufo. Thank you.

    • Maryanne Bosco Ingling says:

      Hi, I saw that your name is Carbone. My Dad’s mother was Rose Carbone and I believe she was from Altavilla Irpina. She married Francesco Bosco. Just wondering if there is any relation. I also have cousins by the last name of Napolitana who reside in New Jersey, but also have family in Italy.
