    I am seeking information on the parents and family remaining in Italy for my husbands, grandfather. His name was Giuseppe/Gueseppe/Joseph Campagna who was born 29 Oct 1889 in Castro deVolg, Frosinone, Lazio, Italy. We know he had siblings who came to America (we believe Joe and Anthony crossed in 1907): Anthony b. 01 Oct 1887, Paul B. 20 Oct. 1893, Sandy b. 1895, and George (not certain of his birthdate) all born in Castro. A sister and the parents remained in Italy, although the mother came to visit and died while in Pennsylvainia, United States in 1934. I do not know her name nor her husbands name who we assume is buried in Italy. We would really appreciate understanding the area of Grandpa Joe’s birth and details of our Italian family. I “happened” upon your website when doing a map search for Castro deVolg, Frosinone, Italy!

    Hi I am trying to find my dads birth mother information or any information regarding my dads history. He was baptized as Eugenio Salvati, I understand that this was a name given to him by the Italian authorities. He was born December 29,1931 in Casto Dei Volsci and placed for adoption. He was put in an orphanage in Castro Dei Volsci when born and was adopted at 28 days by Angela and Domenic Ceci of Colle Marzo , Veroli. They had 4 children, Lisa, Joanna, Maryanna and Alberto. I believe she had another boy child who died at birth. My dad was baptized in La Chiesa di Santa Lucia in Rome. His birth mothers name on birth certificate says Angela Dageli, but we are not sure if that is her real name. I haven’t been able to find any Dageli family members in Rome or Veroli. I am in desperate reply of any information you can find. My dad is aging and constantly speaks of his past being purposely covered up not to be found. Please can you help me find something.

    Hello, I am trying to locate any family members of my grandfather in Castro dei Volsci. I believe his birth name was Oreste Campagna and one of his brother’s name was Michaelangelo Campagna. There were 11 siblings. Michaelangelo Campagna was born in 1904 and was supposedly the youngest of the children. I do not have any other names. I think my grandfather married Lidia Sarandrea in Italy sometime in the 1930’s. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I am hoping to visit Castro dei Volsci in the late part of July.

    Thank you very much,

    My maternal grandma was Terese Grossi who came to the USA in the early 1920’s. Her father was Andrea or perhaps Giuseppe Grossi. They owned a business that grew olives in Castro dei Volsci. In fact the business may still be operating. I wish only to make contact with any relative to discuss my family history. Please pursue this for me. I deeply appreciate your help.

    Kim, I just happened to see this website of yours and am so happy to meet a contact on Castro dei Vosci, Frasinone, Frazo, Italy.
    Luckily the Iannucci family still lives there and I have gotten much informations from a gr. gr. granddaughter who is a college student in Luca(sp). The Ancestor is Giuseppe Iannucci, married three times. His data is born Jan. 16, 1867; died April 21, 1942 all in Castro. His first wife was Veronica Delipori. They were married about 1883. Date not proved. Second wife was Maria (no surname) Maybe Salome or Iannucci.
    She was born 1862 and died in 1916, all in Castro dei Volsci, married about 1892.
    The third wife was Loreta Pipini, born unknown, d. Jan. 29, 1979, married 1/19/1924.
    He had children with each wife. Looking for dates that are not proven. Also
    The young lady to whom I referred found a book written by children some 10-20 years ago and it talked about the children’s relatives who traveled to the U. S. One wrote about “Pepe”, which could be our Giuseppe. The pictures could be closely matched. I have gone on far too long. Please let me know if you need more information or have information relating to this Iannucci family. They raised Olives.
    I’ll await your reply. You have my email address and I would be glad to exchange telephone numbers as well.

    • Virginia says:

      Hello. My paternal grandfather and grandmother were from Castro dei Volsci. My grandfather migrated to Sopris, Colorado in 1907. His name was Angelo Garofali. He had an arranged marriage with Lucia Leonetti, who came to Colorado in 1910. She has a Rosa Rossi in her background. I think she may have been a grandmother. Not sure.
      I do know that many of the Castro dei Volsci immigrants were miners for Colorado Fuel in Sopris.
      Feel free to communicate with me. Maybe we can help each other in our family search.
