    I am searching for the marriage record of Carolina Rizza and Michele DiCicco. She was born 1854 in Belmonte Castello and he in Sant’Elia Fiumerapido. I’ve searched the films but 1878 is too recent for the films at the Family History Center for Belmonte, and I’ve not found it in Sant’Elia. What would you suggest?

    • amerigo says:

      Hi Laurie !!! when I saw your message, I was surprised.I live in France but my relatives are from Belmonte Castello & Sant’elia Fr .Ihave some datas about Michele DiCicco . Born 25-2-1855 ,married 27-10-1878 whith Pirolli Carolina(19-2-1855/20-2-1930) .The father of Michele was Elio Dicicco & his mother Rizza Clementina . It’s strange , no ?? .Do you know the name of 1 or more sons of Michele & Carolina ???

  2. Diane says:

    My great grandfather was Luigi Rizza, married to Yannetta Palma. They lived in Belmonte Castello . I have no other information about them other than their son, my grandfather, Giuseppe Rizza born 1878 came to Scotland and settled here. They may have had other children. If anyone has any information on them or maybe are family members I would be very interested in finding out more. Thank you.

    • amerigo says:

      If what I know is right, Luigi & Palma had at least a 2nd son ,Clemente ,born in 1882 .Palma surname is “Iannetta” .The relatives of Clemente lives in Scotland yet .In few weeks I’ll go in Belmonte Castello ,I can check in City hall if they have the birth certificate as they have for Clemente

    • Luke says:

      Hello, its quite strange how close in time you have posted as I have recently started to search my history myself.

      I know some information that may help you, and in turn help me.

      My grandmother, Meryl Rizza, had 4 brothers. Peter, Frank, Ronnie and Domenic. She was born 1933 and her Father was called Frank Rizza. We don’t have much information on her mother as she drowned in a boat accident.
      My great grandfather, Frank, and what we know is he had a sister called Annie and a sister called Jessie, no idea if any brothers.

      That’s basically all I know. My grandmother, Meryl, and her brothers were put into Nazerth house in Aberdeen after her mother’s death and she stayed there from the age of 2-27 so there is a big gap.

      I have no question we are related and I can’t wait to hear more.

    • Luke says:

      Hi Diane,

      So I found out more.

      My Great Grandfather was Secondino Rizza, Son of Luigi Rizza and Palma Janetta (That’s the order in which I found it). Secondino had brothers Giuseppe, Francesco and Domenico.

      We are truly related.

  3. Lorraine says:

    My great grandparents were Michele Fallone and Carolina Fallone (Vettriano) married on 17th April 1904 in Belmonte Castello. One of their sons, Antonio Peter Fallone, was my grandfather. Any information of family still living in the area?

    • Fred says:

      Hi Lorraine – just noticed you mention my grandparents Michele and Carolina – also my Uncle Tony. My name is Fred Seaton – my mother is Filomena Fallone/Seaton. I know that Tony lived in Maybole and had 2 daughters – Yolanda and Norah ? That’s about it !!!

With my great grandfathers sons, Bernardo, Michealangio and Angelo came to Scotland. My grandfather Bernardo moved from Scotland to Ancoats Manchester after marrying Caterina Lucciano.

    • genie says:

      Hi! We share ancestors in Giovanni Battiste Rizza and Caterine Soave! Their daughter Maria Carolina Rizza married Michele DiCicco, and she and most of their children settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by around 1900.

  5. Jeff says:

    From my mothers UK birth certificate, I believe my grandfather, Erasmus Giannandrea, was born in Belmonte Castello in 1858. Some years ago I visited BC and found the council records had been lost for that period – possibly due to an earthquake. I’m planning to visit again next month, and hope to see if there are records at the church. Are you able to help with names and contact details of someone to contact? I believe he migrated to South Shields in northern England with his wife Domenica in the 1880’s.
    Best wishes and thanks in advance.
