Church archives in Caserta province may instead contain even older information, but they are far less accessible from abroad (and almost impossible by email).
Then,parishes send information not easily.

If you have the opportunity to visit Maddaloni and Caserta province, you could plan to investigate churches’ archives by yourself, but from abroad is very difficult to obtain any result unless you find a reliable local help.

Another important source of information is the “Archivio di Stato” (National archive) in Napoli(Naples).

In any case, never give up! Probably the distance from your country and Italy, some difficulties in understanding and in translation, could complicate your search but this should not discourage you.

It’s important to plan your activities to carry on with simple goals (eg. search for a single date of birth, the name of an ancestor, the date of a marriage, etc.)

    I am the son of the late Antonio Giovanni Matero (or Matera) born in Maddaloni on Oct.22,1904, the son of Michael and Rosalia Gentile Matero.
    I’ve been told they migrated to the U.S. in 1907 at Ellis Island, N.Y. I would like to know if there are any relatives still living in Maddaloni at this time and what their names are if any. Thank you!!

    Looking for family information for my Uncle born in Maddaloni, Italy June 20, 1894. His name is Antonio Lombardi, and went to central NY when he was a young child. He spoke of family members but we never clarified their identity. Married Treasa Ciarla and lived in Solvay, NY just outside of Syracuse, NY.

    I am searching for my husband’s grandparents. Both were born in Maddalone, Caserta. His grandfather wasPasquale Ianniello, son of Saverio Ianniello and Orsola Arpaia, date of birth: March of 1883. He arrived in Ellis Island in January of 1913, having departed Naples Dec.30, 1912.
    His grandmother was Rose Aiello, also from Maddalone, daughter of Francesco Aiello and Felicia Santa. We are traveling to Italy later this year and I hope to surprise my husband of 43 years with more information about his father’s family (both of my husband’s parents died many years ago when he was too young to ask the questions that would have helped in the search. I know there were family members who remained in Italy and I am hoping to see if the information I provided is familiar to someone. Thank you,

    My two daughters and I are going to be in Maddaloni on September 21, 22 and 23 with the intention
    of visiting my grandparents’ birth place and learn as much as we can about our family.

    My grandfather, Nicola Di Lella, born on February 14, 1868 at Strada San Pietro, married to:
    My grandmother, Filomena Pascarella, born on August 13, 1876 at Via Fabio Massimo #1. She died
    My father: Alfonso Di Lella, born November 1, 1904 at Via Santa Margherita #1.

    Any information in their regard would be most welcome. We would also like to know where members of
    Our family were buried. If you don’t have this kind of information, to whom do you recommend I address these questions?
    Thank you in advance for your help,

    Hilda Giganti

    I am the great grand son of Andrew Maddalone. He is recorded to have been born October 2, 1887 in Maddaloni, Caserta, Italy. He came to the US sometime before WWII because I have a document of his registration card for the draft. In the US, he lived in Plainfield, New Jersey. On the card, he left record of one other person named Christina Maddalone. I’m not sure what his relation was to her. This is all the information I have on my great grandfather and I would love to know more about the ancestry.

    My Grandfather and Grandmother both listed Maddaloni as their home in their Ellis Island records. I am interested in finding out more about both. Names were DeLucia and DiNuzzo.

    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

  11. Dorothy says:

    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!

    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
