    HI I have Lazzazzera family from Bagnoli. I have successfully traced my family back several generations. My third great grandfather left Bagnoli to live in Sorrento. My great grandfather eventually came to New York from Sorrento. I’d love to speak to people about the Lazzazzera family.

    I have just started a family search, and was interested in the messages from both Andrew and Laura. My grandmother was born in Bagnoli del Trigno in the late 1800’s. Her maiden name was Guiseppina Lazazarra. She had a brother who emigrated to Chicago.
    I will be in Bagnoli for 2 nights and am hoping to find more on that side of the famiky.

    Good afternoon – I have reached a deadend in searching the genealogy of my husband’s side of the family. My father-in-law is 89 years old and I have been trying to find out information for him. His father was born in Bagnolo del Trigno on October 10, 1880. He had a brother Giuseppe and a sister Giuseppa. We think Achille left family behind in Bagnolo when he immigrated to the states. Do you have any suggestions as to where next to go to look for information on the Gabrieles? Any help help would be greatly appreciated or if you can send me the name of an Italian genealogist that I could hire, that would be great also. Thank you! Laura

    I have actually traced my great grandparents and obtained their birth and marriage certificates with some help. I am now registered as a dual citizen with my birth registered in Bagnoli. I am trying to find some more information more so on the history of Bagnoli and I have seen that the Patron Saint is San Vitale, are you able to give some insight on the history of this comune and why San Vitale is the Patron Saint and which San Vitale, or direct me to somewhere i can find more on the history?
