Church archives in Foggia province may instead contain even older information, but they are far less accessible from abroad (and almost impossible by email).
Then,parishes send information not easily.

If you have the opportunity to visit Troia and Foggia province, you could plan to investigate churches’ archives by yourself (or with us!), but from abroad is very difficult to obtain any result unless you find a reliable local help.

Another important source of information is the “Archivio di Stato” (National archive) in Bari.


In any case, never give up! Probably the distance from your country and Italy, some difficulties in understanding and in translation, could complicate your search but this should not discourage you.

It’s important to plan your activities to carry on with simple goals (eg. search for a single date of birth, the name of an ancestor, the date of a marriage, etc.)

I am not sure which is correct. I would like to have any records available including birth and, if available, marriage. She married Alphonso Cirone and they had a son Melio Cirone born about 1913.

    My great-great grandfather – Domenico (spelling?) Di Ponziano was from Troia born (on the record it said) March 26th, 1873. His wife Assunta Di Palma was also from Troia (she was married once before, but he died when they arrived to America) she was born in 1873 as well. I am trying to find out more about their ancestry – who were their parents? What did they do? Any information helps! Thank you!

  11. Eugene says:

    My great grandfather, Alfonso Caputo, was born in Troia, Italy in 1859, but I have no official record of the birth and I would like to have one, particularly as it might show his mother and father. Alfonso was married to Antonia Lizzi, and she died and was buried in Trioa around 1894, but I have no official record of the marriage or the death and would like to have these, as they might list Antonia Lizzi’s parents. Finally, Alfonso Caputo’s parents Antonio (might have been Valantonio) and his mother, Costanza Pasqualuccio probably died in Trioa in the late 1800’s, but I can find no record of them. I am told that Antonia Lizzi, Antonio Caputo, and Costanza Pasqualuccio are buried in the graveyard of the church in Trioa. Can you help find the information on these three ancestors of mine? Many thanks.

I would like to know if any relatives still are there. my great granmother name is Antonia del Vecchio & she came to America but why she did not use Lizzi name? What cemeteries in Troia have Lizzi graves especially Biagio & Grazia Lizzi my great great grandparents. thanks.

    • Sarah says:

      Fred! My grandmother’s maiden name was Lizzi. I believe her father was Gabriel Lizzi born in Foggia around 1889, married to a Lydia Iacavone(sp). From what I could find, he came to the US around 1912. Trying to find any information I can as all connection was lost with that side of the family decades before I was born. Maybe we’re distant cousins? Feel free to contact me!
