    Searching for records of pasquale Lattario or Lattari born in 1888 I believe

  28. Linda says:

    Am researching Aurelio Panetta who arrived in US on March 16, 1904 on Hohenzollern via Ellis Island. He listed last place of residence as Fontechiari. He married Mattie Aldridge on 1/30/07 in Longacre, WV., where he listed his father’s name as Pietro and his mother’s name as Angiolini Pancetta. Two different references found list his birth date as Sept. 17, 1881. Another reference lists his mother’s name as Angelina Jarendy. Different references list his birth place as Fontechiari or Caserta. Family lore tells us that his wife, Mattie, died, along with a small child, and that Aurelio then turned over his two sons (Pete and Thomas) to a children’s home because he only spoke broken english and could not take care of the children. We know that shortly after that time, Aurelio moved to the NY/NJ area and that someone named Bert Moretta looked out for him, but we do not know where the connection between Aurelio and Bert began. Aurelio passed in the early 1950’s.
    Any information on the the Panetta family would be much appreciated.

  29. Tina says:

    Imparo Italiano per cerco i antenati della famiglia ma conosco non troppo.

    Mattachione is my family name and a search shows no names with that spelling in Italy. I find Mattacchione in Lazio, but my grandfather said that his father were ice cream makers and came from Caserta…I do not know whether it was the city or province.

    I know that my great grandfather was born in about 1867, probably in Caserta, and that his father’s name was Lorenzo and his mother’s name was Elizabeth, but that is all we know. How would I begin to search for him if I come to Italy?

  30. Kelly Vincenza says:

    My paternal great grandfather is a bit of a mistery. He came to the United States in the early 1900’s with the name Antimo Promiscuo. He married my great grandmother Vincenza Varone from San Clemente, Caserta, Italy. Passenger records for Antimo states date of birth as August 30, 1890 in Caserta and his mother’s first name is Maria. However, is last name is not traceable. I’m desperately trying to locate his birth certificate in Italy with the information I have.

  31. Rae says:

    I am researching Alfonso Frangipane, wife Michelina, birth name unknown. Alfonso was born 16 December 1885, Michelina about 1888. One of Alfonso’s documents says he was born in Cattino but I cannot find any such commune in Italy. Family legend says that the Frangipanes lived in the Province of Caserta.

  32. Ann says:

    I have taken my father’s paternal grandmother’s family back to 1801 and 1810 respectively. His line is Pirollo back to Zampella back to DiCostanzo, Isso and Ignarra. I have had this good luck only for the female line in Caserta. I am stuck on Domenico Pirollo and his wife Luisa Di Meo who may have been married in Caserta around 1820 but their son was born in Pozzillo in 1825 which is a small fratzione near Caserta.

  33. Shirley says:

    Trying to trace records for my family.
