    Greetings all,

    I am looking into the Castellano family of this town. My great grandfather came to America and had to leave his family behind. From the research and records I have been able to find, I believe I have traced his family back correctly but not 100% sure. Does anyone have information on the Castellano’s of this area?

    • Joseph says:

      Looking for information on Fischetti Raffaele.

      My grandfathers last name is Fischetti, but Inam being told it’s actually Fuschetto. Does anyone know why or how it was changed. My family came to New York around 1964.

      Grandfather – Giuseppe Fischetti
      Grandmother – Maria Fischetti ( Maiden name – Gentile)
      Father – Carmine Fischetti
      Mother – Concetta Fischetti ( Maiden name – Rafaele )

      • Michael says:

        I don’t know why, but a number of Fuschetto’s who came from Sant’Angelo at different times and from different families became Fischetti’s when they entered the US. My grandfather, Domenico Fuschetto, and my grandmother, Carolina Fuschetto, were both born in Sant’Angelo. They came to the US at different times, and later married in the US. My family has used the Fischetti name since the 1880’s, and I know of at least two other Fuschetto families that had the same thing happen. What’s perplexing is that both names are very common in the town. I have my grandparents’ birth certificates so I know they were Fuschetto’s. Perhaps because they could not read and write, the name change was something that was done without their awareness.

    I am researching the Montemaranos who left Italy by 1900.

    First, I would love more information on the town. Can you recommend a place where I can find photos of the town around 1900? Or any website that has more history?

    I would also love to find the wedding information and other records on my great grandparents, Dominick Montemarano (born approx. 1860) and his wife Lucia Montemarano. Her maiden name was the same as her husband’s name. Her birthday was June 23 and she was probably born in 1869, though it may have been as late as 1872. They were married around 1890. I believe they may have traveled between the US and Italy several times and it is possible Dominick may have died in Italy sometime between 1910 and 1915.

      My grandfather was Rocco Policano and he had an older sister named Teresa. He left Italy when he was 17 and he went back for the first time in 1965 when he was almost 80. Teresa was still alive at that time. We heard that many in the family were lost afterwards during the devastating earthquake in that town. The family still lived in the same house as when my grandpa left. One of my cousins went with him and one of our aunts. My cousin would know more about Teresa and her children because they stayed at their house while in Italy. I’ll ask her if she knows anything about Teresa’s husband.

    • Rocco Tedesco says:

      My grandfather, Rocco Tedesco and his wife Giuseppina Verderosa, were from Sant’Angelo. They were born in the mid to late 1800s and came to the states around 1890. My father, Salvatore Tedesco visited the town in the early 1970s and also saw the reference to General Tedesco. I always understood that Tedesco was a very common name in that town, and I believe that as my dad was walking around he saw a man who resembled his older brother. They engaged in conversation and as I recall they were able to reconstruct the family ties.
