    Hello, I am searching for great grandmother/grandfather from Montemarano.
    Grandmothers sur name was DeGiso or DiGeso and grandfather was Federico DeCilio.
    I believe they left Italy and sailed to Argentina around 1895 or earlier.
    I am planning to visit in October to see if I can find any more details.
    My grandfather was born in Argentina in 1896, but has a different last name (Anges).
    Thank you for helping to solve the puzzle of my family. I am just now researching further.

  4. Emily Benevento Vitale says:

    I have been searching for information regarding my father’s family. The surname is Benevento and I am almost certain that they came from Montemarano, Itlay. I was able to acquire my great grandfather’s (Giovanni Benevento married to Grazia Gambale) New York death certificate which identifies his parents as George Benevento and Marie Gambale. The death certificate lists all birth certificate references as “unobtainable”. I have searched records and have come up empty. I would appreciate any advice or guidance you can give me. Thanks!
