    I am looking for information on my Great-Grandfather, Francesco (Frank) Tata. He was born between 1881 and 1888. He was born in Vicalvi according to family information, however, I believe he may have been born in Alvito. His first wife was Maria, who died in 1919, and Angela was his second wife. Francesco had 5 children, Antonio, Cessidio (Joseph), Leonard (Rinaldo), Loretta and Nancy. I also am looking for any relatives with the last name Tata.

    Wow….what a post. My grandfather is Pasquale Palombo. He came to the US through Ellis Island. I have 2 sheets where he signed coming to the US. My father (Louis) is one of his sons Pasquale had in Denver. My father had 1 brother (Fred) and one sister (Jeannie). The family left to Oakland, California during WW2. Both brothers entered the service. I am assuming thatFred or Jeannie is you grandfather/grandmother. Can you tell me how we are related.

    How did the trip to Rome go? Any info.

    My father was born in 1907. In English his name was Frank Palombo. The story goes he emigrated to the US in 1912. He was the oldest of 10 children. They settled in Schenectady, N.Y. His parents names were Giovanni (I think) and Nuncia (I think, my spellings could be way off). I believe my grandmothers maiden name was either Martini or Ferrari. Can any of this be confirmed? With my spotty information?

  4. Anna says:

    My grandfather was Francesco buono and passed away in Detroit Michigan in the early 30’s at 36 years of age. He was from Vicalvi and the only information I know is his mothers name was Assunta. He married my grandmother who I believe was from Alvito and her name was Mesia not know much more and my parents are both gone. My grand parents had two children. My mother Antoinette and my uncle Mario. I would appreciate any information. Thank you.

  5. Brian says:

    My Grandfather, Angelo Palombo, was born in Vicalvi in 1899 to Rafael & Philomena Palombo. He had an older Brother, Dominic, and a younger Brother, Attilio. Both Dominic and Angelo immigrated to the US in 1919 – 1922. Dominic was killed in an Industrial accident in 1933 in Aliquippa (Pittsburgh) PA. He was survived by a Wife and 2 young Daughters who remained in Italy, possibly in the vicinity of Pisa. I believe that by the 1930’s that my Great-Grandparents & Great-Uncle, Attilio, may have left Vicalvi for Pisa to assume ownership of a family farm. I am hoping to visit Vicalvi next year with my father, Angelo’s only surviving Son, and I would like to establish (if possible) where in Vicalvi Angelo was born and locate any relatives. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

    My grandfather, Francesco Donato Buono was born in Vicalvi in 1889. His father was Luigi Buono, his mother Addolorata(?) Riggi. I am trying to find out if Francesco had any siblings. Thanks

      Our family (Riggi) is from Vicalvi. I see your great grandmother has the same last name. Crazy if there could be relation.

  7. Dawn says:

    My great-grandfather Pasquale Palombo was born in Vicalvi, Italy on December 13, 1885. We know he traveled back to Vicalvi in the 50’s before he was ill and passed away in the mid 50’s. We understand he was first married to Domenica Palombo and they had two boys. He immigrated to the US, moved to Denver, Colorado where he met my Great Grandmother and then they married. I’m traveling to Rome in a couple of weeks and will be taking a day visit out to Vicalvi and we were hoping to find any birth, or marriage certificate for Pasquale Palombo and his 1st wife Domenica Palombo.

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide our family.
