    My grandfather Antonio Nappi was born in Cicciano in 1885. He emigrated to England in or around 1901.
    His father was called Michael and was registered as a farm labourer in Cicciano.
    Antonio Nappi died in 1951 and his son Leonard was my father.
    I am visiting Naples this month and wonder if anyone can suggest how I go about tracing my unknown relatives?
    Thank you
    Trudi

    I am writing to find out information on my late husbands grandfather. His name was Marcellini De Simine. He was born 2 February 1889 in Ciccano, Italy. He came to America at a young age. I am looking to find out more information on his family in this area for my children. They as many need to know their heritage.

    Thank you for any assistance.

    I am searching for the family of my uncle Gabriele Ianotaro who was born in 1908 on 25 October in San Felice a Cancel. His parents were Clemente and De Luca Maria.
    I have a relative’s name and address on an old letter from about 1990. The hand writing is difficult for me to read but it looks like
    De Luca Mototalena
    Via Antonio De Luca
    Cicciano
    80033 Napoli

    Another letter I have has the same address but with the name Andonetta Maddelina

    I would like to meet any living relatives when I visit the Naples area in May or June. Can someone confirm the name of the family living at Via Antonio De Luca? A telephone number or email address to contact the family?
    Thank you for your assistance.

    I am Antonio D’Aloia’s granddaughter. My grandfather and I visited Cicciano in 1958 and again in 1964 stayed with his youngest brother Giuseppi and his family – wife Barbara, son Franco, daughter Rosa and son Luigi. they lived at Via Alfredo Nucci #19. My grandfather was able to bring Giuseppi, Barbara, Rosa and Luigi to America (Dayton, Ohio) to live in 1966(?) They didn’t like Dayton and went to Little Italy in New York and ultimately back to Cicciano.
    I am interested in knowing who is making these inquiries. Please feel free to email me. What is your connection to our family. Look forward to hearing from you.

    Dominic, Biago, Angelo and Guiseppe all lived on Via Alfredo Nucci and brother Aniello lived on the outskirts of Cicciano in a single family dwelling.
