    Hi, looking for info on friends Tomas Collaro and Guiseppe Esposito from Boscoreale. They left around 1904 for Brookyln NEw York and sent for their families over the next 5-10 years. They were butchers by trade. We briefly visited Boscoreale and noticed a shop with an old sign behind a new sign above the store which said Esposito. Probably a long shot the it was my husbands great grandfathers butcher shop. If he even had a store it is not known. Any info on the family’s would be greatly appreciated. I try to look on Italian sites but I do not read or speak Italian.

    My Great Grandmother Brigitta Annunziata and her spouse Giuseppe Carbone, left Poggiomarino around 1890 for New York. I have many Poggiomarino Church records but they do not have her marriage Certificate. One record lists the birth of Luigia Carbone (father Giuseppe Carbone and mother Brigida (not Brigitta) Annunziata) as 14 December 1884, Municipality of Boscoreale. Luigia did not come to America, she may have died as a young child but there’s no record of her death in Poggiomarino Records.
    I’m trying to find out if Luigia died at a young age in Boscoreale.
    I’m also trying to find a marriage certificate for Brigitta/Brigida Annunziata and Giuseppe Carbone in order to find her mother’s maiden name.
    Please let me know what fees are involved to research/obtain these records. Any help or guidance will be appreciated.

    My family I believe is grim Boscoreale and my Grandfather Gussieppe Cirillo was born in Boscoreale in 1887 .His father was Marco Cirillo and mother was Louisa Massa. My Grandfather is the only child that lived out of 13 children. I have been trying to see if my great grandfather had any brothers or sisters who had children. I wrote to town with no help. I got the information from my grandmother side of the family . She was born in Afragola and I got their marriage certificate which states that my grandfather was from Boscoreale . BTW my grandmother was also a Cirillo but no relation my father always said that they had to get permission from the bishop to get married and they had to prove they were not related. I would appreciate any help.
