    I’m interested to find out about my grand grand father – Vicente or Vicenzo Marino(in italian I guess) who was born in 1874. The death certificate we have says” Provincia di CASERTA/Itay/ Monteleone. Does it make sense?
    He married Maria Catharina Consenso who was from Provincia di Catanzaro and was born in 1890.
    Both came to Brazil not sure when and died there.

    Looking for information about my family.

    He arrived on the S.S. Cretic from Naples possibly in the company of Giuseppa Tarone (daughter of Francesco Tarone of Monteleone), age 18.

    Donata Tamburro – arrived in Toronto in April 1921, age 29
    She arrived on the S.S. Minnekhada? from Naples.

    Donata’s mother – my great-great grandmother was Angela Tamburro from Monteleone di Puglia – Bari

  13. Edward says:

    My grand parents and uncle (Alberto) were from Monteleone. They emegrated to New York in the early 1990’s

  14. Maryann says:

    I am traveling to Italy. My maternal grandparents lived in Monteleone di Puglia. Grandfather’s name is Visconti and grandmother’s is Ciani. Where do I find more info or if there are relatives still there?

  15. Doug says:

    it is clear that Monteleone is an ancient town. All my web searches have given no indication of a founding or beginning date for the town, or parts of the town. I am curious about the Borgo Nuovo portion, mostly, as the Ruggiero family had a house on the road, outside of the old town wall. Knowing when Borgo Nuovo was set down, as a road, or as a settlement would give some guess about how long the family had been there.

    Secondarily, I remain curious about the source and meaning of the name Ruggiero. All my looking points to a naming convention based on the Norman kings Roger I and/or Roger II, or something to with a rusty earthy colour. Either seems likely if we were some kind of serf or servant-property of a king, I suppose.

  16. Rocco Nunno says:

    I would like to get more information about my family from Monteleone di Puglia. My grandfather was Rocco Nunno and my grandmother was Rosaria Volpe.

    • Charles says:

      My great grandmother was Maria Volpe 1886-1986. She was also from Monteleone. Did your grandmother emigrate to the U.S? Feel free to drop me a note.

      • Rocco says:

        My grandmother Rosaria Volpe and her twin sister stayed in Monteleone di Puglia. Her parents Angelo and Carmela Volpe moved to New York in 1896 or 1897.

  17. Daniel says:

    Good day,
    I’m interested in finding out more information about my mother’s family (Colangelo), from Monteleone di Puglia. I’ve been able through civil registries (microfilms) to trace the line back to Felice Colangelo and his father Annibale Colangelo. Felice died in 1835 at age 76, thus he would have been born some time around 1759 (possibly between 1758-1762). For his father, Annibale, I would estimate he was born some time around 1717, based on the ages of his children I was able find through the registries. Would anyone be willing or able to help me contact the Church archieves in Monteleone or Foggia, to see if they could locate any earlier records (birth records of Felice and Annibale, and possibly some earlier generations)? Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this information would be extremely meaningful to my mother and her family.
    Thank you,

    • Kim says:

      Hi Daniel,

      Did you ever get anywhere with your search? I’m also trying to find info on my grandfathers side of the family, but other then his name, Rocco Colangelo, and knowing that he is from Monteleone, I know nothing more about his family. Please feel free to contact me

      Thank you.
