    I’ve just come across information that my paternal grandfather is from St. Vitaliano (not Caserta as previously thought). His name is Salvatore Passariello, DoB 05/30/1884. From what I can determine he came to the US in 1902, arriving in NY. I’m looking for more information in advance of a trip to Italy in the Fall. Hoping to see his birthplace.

    I am helping a friend with their family history. This is what I have:
    Mariano/Marion Marotta and Maria Grazia Paone from San Vitaliano. They had a son named Antonio (later changed to Nicola) Marotta born July 16, 1884. He married a Giuseppina Caliendo, also from San Vitaliano. I am at a dead end trying to find more info on these families. Can you help?
    Thanks so much!
