    I am looking for information on the parents and families of Pietro Mazzei (born in Ascoli Satriano on 8 May 1877) and his wife Angelina Saracino (born 3 October 1883). They emigrated to the United States and arrived in 1913.

    Thank you,

    I am doing a little family research and believe my great great great granddad was baptised in Civile, Ascoli Satriano, Foggia, Italy on 28 July 1835. His name was Antonio Maria Bartone on the record I found online.

    Where will his Birth certificate be?

    Is Bartone a common alternative spelling for Bettoni?

    How easy is it to prove that Antonio Bettoni living in England from 1861-1912 is the same as Antonio Bartone?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    Kind Regards.

    I’m looking for information of my grandfather Antonio Bonavita born 1892.
    His father died when he was a baby and his mother was from the Sarni family and re-married into the Rolla family. I know he had some half brothers named Rolla.
    I would like to know if there are any relatives and the exact date of my grandfather’s birth. Antonio came to America Dec. 6, 1911. I would appreciate any information you could supply,

    Hello There!!!

    I am looking for some help. I an trying to find information on my 2 times great grandparents. My great grandmother was Antonia Maria Anguilano born in Ascoli Satriano June 13, 1888. Her death was in May 1969 in Cleveland Ohio. Her death certificate lists her father as Salvatore Anguilano, but no mothers name. I have no information on Salvatore and of course would love information on him and learn who my 2 times great grandmother was and anyone else in the family.

    Antonia married Giuseppe Acquaviva in November 1906 in Ascoli Satriano. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I’m hoping you can give advice regarding adoption. I’ve been working on family history for a long time. My grandparents were born in Ascoli Satriano but my grandfather was adopted so how do you get around that hurtle? Who dealt with adoptions then (1897-)? Is it possible to find information on both sets of parents? Thank you for any help

    My wife’s mother was Nancy Gradone, born ~1924 in Newark NJ. Nancy’s parents were Donato Gradone (born 4 MAY 1892) in Ascoli Satriano, and Filomena Rotonda, born 2 MAY 1899 in Italy (perhaps Ascoli Satriano). Donato’s parents were Francesco Gradone (b.~1868) and ‘Francesca’ (b. ~ 1869), both of Ascoli Satriano. We know nothing more of Nancy Gradone’s ancestors and would greatly appreciate any information that you can provide.
