    Hi Eric, my mother is from San Giuseppe Vesuviano. Her sister, my aunt, who currently lives in a neighboring town called Ottaviano is married to an Iovino.
    It is possible that he is related to your relative, Paolo.
    Your message above is from 2016, message me back if you are still searching and I can check with my zio to see if there’s any relation.

    I am researching my grandfather’s brother, Mario L Ferraro, who records show was born in San Guiseppe, Naples either on Feb 28 or Feb 29, 1896.
    He immigrated to New York City with his parents Antonio and Carmelo Amato and his sister Frances about 1898. Frances was born approx 1892.
    Antonio, a tailor, was born 1870 to Joseph and Frances Boccia, according to his 1935 New York death record, but it didn’t give a birth place.
    Would you have any information relating to these people or can you suggest how it might be found. My sister is coming to Italy in Feb and would like to see anything relating to them. I would imagine there would be a birth record for Frances or Mario, baptism records and maybe a marriage certificate for Antonio and Camelo.

    I’m looking for information on Paolo Iovino, born October 8, 1877 in San Giuseppe, he was married to Irena Ammirati, also from San Giuseppe. Paolo’s parents were Francisco and Giovanna Iovino. Looking for any suggestions on how to find out more about them or other members of the family.

    I’m researching my husband’s maternal family. I’m looking for the parents of Antonio Rascionato ( Rascrinato, Roschnotti…). Antonio was born in 1856 in San Giuseppe Vesuviano, immigrated to US in 1887. I’m also looking for his wife’s family. Her name is Congetta (Concetta). I do not know her maiden name. She was born in 1866 and immigrated in 1887 or 1888.

    I’d like to find information on these two families as far back as I can go. Many thanks for your help.

      Hi

      I just saw your post because I am researching family in the same town. My grandmothers maiden name was Annunziata she married my grandfather Ruggiero Pisa. They both came from the same town. My grandmother had a cousin named John Terrible who had a daughter Josephine. They divorced and he married a woman named Marguerite. Josephine’s married name is Bifulco.
      I thought it all seemed too familiar seeing all 3 last names. The name Amendola and Bernabe are not familiar to me or my family. I don’t know how much this helps but I wanted to let you know I knew the names.

    I am trying to find information on my grandparents. My mother and father were born in San Giuseppe and Ottaviano, respectively, and were brought to the USA by their fathers. My grandmothers died in Italy during the Spanish Influenza outbreaks. The end result is that I know very little of their extended families. The family names are Bifulco, Terribile, Annunziata, Amendola, (and possibly Bernabe.) I may have some first names. Thank you for any help you may offer because I have pretty much given up.

      Hi Phyllis and Marie. My grandfather came from that area late 1800 too. Last name was Bifulco also. Rafael but was called Fred. The family settled in Huntington , NY. Any relation?

  8. Frank says:

    I am looking for information about my Great Grandfather and his family. His name is Francesco Ambrosio born around July 14, 1865 in San Giuseppe Vesuviano.He had three children Antonio born in 1888, Giovanni born in 1889 and Teresa born in 1892, before his wife Francesca died. He immigrated to America between 1894 &1897. He had a sister Giuseppina who also immigrated to America in 1898 with her husband Fillipo.Is it possible to get more information, as to his parents and other brothers and sisters. Also, could I get copies of birth Certificates and his marriage Certificate. An important point, it is possible that his name in Italy was D’Ambrosio and the D’ was dropped when he came to America.

    Partida de Nacimiento de mi bisabuelo Tomaso Catapano hijo de Florindo Catapano y Maria Antonia Prisco de Catapano. Nacido en San Giuseppe Vesuviano entre 1800 al 1897.

  11. Sheila says:

    I am looking for relatives of my husband, Louis. His grandfather, Luigi Fabbrocino, emigrated to New York in 1903, from Ottaviano. His father was Antonio Fabbrocino, mother, was Filomena Cutolo. He married, 1912, Filomena Catapano from San Guiseppe-Vesuviano. Her parents were Salvatore Catapano and Antonia Marie Nappo. Their surnames are Fabbrocino, Catapano and Cutolo.
    How can I get information on the above people? The internet searches I do from America get nowhere on those names. What churches are there in San Guiseppe? I expect any records from Ottaviano are lost due to the 1944 Vesuvius eruption, but that is an assumption on my part. My husband and I will be on a cruise, visiting Naples for one day, in Sept., so any info would be great. I’m hoping we can visit both of those towns while we’re so close, but, not sure how to do that as we are not familiar with travel choices near the port where our ship will be docked. Thank You for any help.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.
