Another important source of information is the “Archivio di Stato” (National archive) in Roma.

    My Name is Joseph Meccariello. Born in Italy in S.Arsenio ( Sa) currently living in the USA. I did some research and found out that my Grandfather Giuseppe Meccariello was born in Pico ( Frosinone ) in march 22 1881. His father Luigi Meccariello was born in Moiano Benevento on April 4 1854.

    My father, Luigi Meccariello, like me was born in S.Arsenio( Sa) in 1913.

    I am trying to see if I can contact anyone with the Meccariello Surname in Pico ( Frosinone ) as well in Moiano (Benevento).

    If anyone can help in suggesting the best way to do this it will be greatly appreciated.

Any assistance with showing the parents of Sebastiano or Concetta would be grateful.
