    My great great grandmother came from Montemilleto her name was Maria C. Brogna (Bagnuolo) her husband Antonio Brogan, settled outside of Boston, her father was Achille and her mother was Consilia I believe.. Anyone related?

  2. Laura says:

    My Nan has recently passed away and it’s only then we realised how little we actually knew about her. She was born Alma Di Orio (think that’s right spelling!) in Montemiletto 15/12/1933.
    She left Italy at the young age of 18 and only returned to Italy for a visit in 1974. I am hoping to find out about her parents and siblings as the family (even her sons/daughters) aren’t 100% on any names and other details of her family when she was young.
    Hope someone can point me in the right direction.thanks Laura

    Looking for
    Maria Angelica Della Porta (b. 1873 Montemiletto ?)
    daughter of Giuseppe DellaPorta
    Giuseppe came to NYC around 1890- 1898 ?
    HELP !! I have been searching for years. I only have Maria’s marriage certificate from NYC and from that, her husbands naturalization papers that name her birthplace as montmerletto but the handwriting is not clear.
    I even went to Monte Merletta near Vicenza — no luck.
    I will come to Montemiletto/ Avellino as soon as I get some hint that i am now on the right track.
    Grateful for ANY information or how to proceed.

    Buon giorno!
    Any information on my great-grandfather Ciriaco De Virgilio (Di Virgilio) born in Montemiletto 13 June 1889 would be greatly appreciated.
    I believe his brothers were: Antonio, Giovanni, Raffaele, Alessio & Giuseppe.
    I would like to know his father & mother’s names (maiden) and perhaps where they lived.
    Tante Grazie!

      Well, I finally received my great-grandfather’s birth certificate. Interestingly, his mother’s maiden name was Cerella. Also in attendance at his birth were Gaetano Dello Iacono (40yrs) and Gaetano Capobianco (30yrs). Very cool to be holding the document:-)

  8. Robert says:

    Looking for any mention or records of my grandfather, Gaetano D’Amato, born in 1878 in Avellino (in Montemilleto, I think). He emigrated to the U.S. around 1908.

      My Grandmother was Teresa D’Amato, Montemiletto. I believe this was brother or cousin. She came to US 1908 with mother.
