    I have been told that my great great great grandparents were from Montefusco, Italy. They are Alessandra Oliveri and Giovanni DeGugleilmo. They would have lived there in the 1800s. They had a son Luigi DeGuglielmo on 2/2/1879 in Santa Nazarro Benevento who came to the United States. Birth dates or any other information that you have would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you, Susan

    Bonjour,je recherche l’acte de naissance d’un ancêtre qui a émigré en France probablement vers 1819.
    Il s’agit de Nicaël Palito, né vers 1778 (âgé de 41 ans en mai 1819).
    Son père : Nicolas Palito
    Sa mère : Rose Griech
    Domicilié au moment de son départ pour la France à “Concho, province de Montefusco, royaume de Naples.
    Ces éléments figurent sur son acte de mariage du 22 décembre 1820 (dans la commune de Cognehors, commune disparue aujourd’hui située dans le département de Charente Inférieure devenu depuis Charente Maritime en France).

      Antonio Molla Picardo was born in “Jusano, Montefuscole, Diócesis Abelina” in 1780-1790. His parents were Ciriaco Molla and Catalina Picardo, both from “Jusano, Montefuscole, Diócesis Abelina”.
      1) Could you tell me what is Jusano, in Montefusco?
      2) Could you look for the baptism of Antonio Molla Picardo?

    My grandfather`s name is Nicolas Montefusco. His parents are Genero Montefusco and Camilla Nini. My grandfather left Italy in 1912. It appears to me that Montefusco is a town. Could it be we have the name wrong…

    My grandmother was Filomena Viglione. She left Montefusco and sailed out of Naples to NY, NY (Ellis Island) in 1923. Is there a way to find out her address or where she lived in Montefusco? Also, are there still relatives living there?
