    When I was stationed in the Naples Area between 1980 and 1983, I was able to visit my cousin Teresa Vigliotti who lived in Cervino. Teresa was 70 at the time and had a 35 year old women named Pasquina living with her. My wife and I had three young blonde haired daughters. When we visited Teresa, other residents of Cervino came over to see us. They treated us wonderfully and loved our daughters. I assume Teresa has passed. I was wondering if anyone can give me an update on Teresa and also provide the address of her home and if interned, her location.

    I have a family that the marriage for Domenico Iannuzzi and Adelaide Carfore took place in Santa Maria a Vico. The marriage record stats that Domenico was from Cervino. The birth records are on line. I could not find the surname of Iannuzzi in Cervino. I did find a death record for their son Raffaele who died in 1904 and it stated that they lived in Messercola-Cervino. My questions are there records for Messercola? The Family History Center does not have any records for Messercola. Thank you for your help

    My grandmother’s maiden name is Pascarella. According to the stories told throughout my family, either her father or her grandfather was a wealthy vinyard owner in Cervino, but when he immigrated to Syracuse, New York, his vines wouldn’t grow and had to work construction. However, apparently he donated a lot of money to a local church in the town of either Cervino or Caserta, I’m not completely sure, but the church then put the Pascarella name on the front of the church. I am looking to find exactly where this church is so I can visit it.
