      I went to Montorso (Montorsi) to look for info on my Tavino family. They said they had no records even though the small ancient cemetery had many of your relatives buried there. When I got back to the States I found out the records were in the next hill town: Sant’Angelo a cupolo. Montorso is considered a “frazione” of Santangelo… Little did I know, and no one shared that info with us. Keep that in mind.

    My grandfather, Vincenzo Nobile, came to America from Sant Angelo a Cupolo in 1910. I believe his father, Alesandro Nobile, was a farmer from Bagnara. He married Rosa Fiscetti.
    I would love to connect with anyone who might have known them or their subsequent families.
    Thank you,

    I am searching for information about my paternal grandfather Cosimo di Piero who was supposedly from San Angelo a Cupolo, Benevento. The information I have about him and his sisters is from the records at Ellis Island when they entered the United States.
    Cosimo di Piero or di Pierro not sure of the spelling is supposedly from Benevento, Italy. His sister was born 1887. Her name was Lucrezia De Pierro . Her death certificate lists her age as 39 upon her death on Jan 14 1927. She entered the USA at the age of 20 on the Regina d’Italia on August [26] 1907 with her sister Beatrice, age also 20. They may have been twins. They departed Naples and entered thru Ellis Island. Residence location stated on the Ellis Island printed transcript as S Angelo Cupoli, Benevento. Apparently their brother Cosimo was also on this list but no residence listed.
    Any information you have would be deeply appreciated.
