    Dorothy,

    I am a D’Angelo myself . My great grandfather is Filippo D’Angelo from Maddaloni born 1908 there is also someone listed with the name Margherita that he listed on the manafest when he came over here. I bet anything we are related! How was your trip

    I am going to be in Maddaloni on October 7th & 8th and was hoping to do some searching in regards to my grand parents.
    Grand father: Luigi D’Angelo born 1887 to Clement (1864) & Francesca D’Nuzzo (1865 to 1920)
    Grand Mother: Margherita D’Nicola born to Vicenzo (?) & Maria Grazia D’Nuzzo(?)
    Any advice as where to go once in Maddaloni along with anything else would be welcomed. The thought of being in their homeland and possibly visiting a church where they once attended would be a life time EVENT!
    thank you!

    Hello,

    I am the great grand daughter of Gaetano Ferraro, born November 26th 1885 to Luigi Ferraro and his wife Maria Domencia Merola in the village of Maddaloni. Gaetano had four siblings, Lucia born 12-27-1877, Rosalena 5-7-1879, Salvatore 9-7-1881, Maria Luisa 1-8-1888. I am very interested in the any information about my family from Maddaloni. The five children all came to the States and I know nothing of Luigi and Maria, so very sad.

    Thank you

    Karen
