    I am trying to find out more about my maternal grandmother’s family who lived in Vico Equense before immigrating to the U.S.
    My grandmother’s name was Rachel Starace, daughter of Geremiah and Elisabetta Marrone Starace. She was born on Feb. 12, 1881, followed by brother Rafaella born 1884,sister Elsie born 1891, brother Ciro born 1894, sister Anna born 1896, and brother Vincent born 1898.
    They lived in the family home which was on a hill overlooking the village. Behind the house further up the hill was a gray stone church with a stone wall surrounding it and a cemetary with a mousoleum. That is where Geremiah Starace was buried.
    The home was given to the Sisters of Charity in the 1960-70′s. A tennant farmer rented the house was the last information I knew of the house.
    My brother,Dr. Harry de Girolamo, will be visiting Vico Equense in September and I would love to be able to let him see the house where our grandmother was born and where our family lived for hundreds of years.
    We may still have cousins in Vico whose family surname is Oliva.
    I look forward to any information you may have. Thank you. Lola

    My great-grandfather was Nicola DeMartino, born August 3, 1866 in Vico Equense. He sailed alone from Napoli on April 1, 1888 and arrived in America on April 25th. He lived on 88th Street on the Upper West Side of New York around the turn of the century.

    Any information from family members still in Vico Equense is appreciated.

    I am looking for information on my grandfathers family. His name was Marco Savarese. He came to America in the late 1800′s or very early 1900′s. We believe he was a sailor. Also believe he was born in the 1870′s.

    I am trying to locate information relating to my great-grandfather’s family. His father was Giosue Fucito and his eldest brother – also Giosue Fucito emigrated to the U.S. in 1908 from Vico Equense. Another brother Gaetano Fucito was listed as having been born in Meta.

    I’m hoping to find some information on a Vincenzo Anthony Romito who immigrated from Vico Equense in 1892. He was born/christened in April 1855. If you could send me in the right direction, who to contact for such information, that would be very helpful. Thank you.
