    I am seeking information about Carlo Ventricelli (born 1882) and his ancestors. I’m told he was born in Alamura and his parents are Carlo and Madalena. I am also interested in his wife Consiglia Ditonno (born 1883) and her family. I’m told she was from Santeramo. I’m told her parents were Erasmo and Maria Ditonno. Carlo and Consiglia emigrated to USA in August 1913. I’m new to this. Are there websites that can help research these families? I will be in Puglia this October. Can someone suggest an archive of public records and/or repository of church records that I could access while in Puglia? Gracie!

    Trying to research my paternal great grandparents, Giuseppe Angelo Capozzi(February 28,1853-October 24, 1928, Santeramo in Colle) and Rosina Marsico(December 11,1856-June 30, 1935). Its been said that this family has Albanian origins and I’d like to find some proof. I know that I have several cousins in the area. Thanks for any help in this matter.

    I am hoping to find any records for Leonardo Vito DiCandio. He was born in Santeramo (Colle, Bari) Italy on June 23,1889. He came to America at 18, via Napel, Italy aboard the Barbarossa. He arrived in New York on October 11,1913. He lived in Florida the rest of his 90 year life. He has a huge family in Florida, but I’m looking for records of his life and family in Italy.

    I am looking for the baptism of Andrea Erasmo Cataldo d’Ajuto in Santeramo, the 29th of November 1731. He was a castrato singer in the royal chapel in Versailles from 1747 to 1777.
    I would like to know the name and occupation of his parents and his godfather and godmother.
    Could someone have a look in the registers of Santeramo church for me?
    Thank you in advance. Grazie mille per la ricercha.
