Tracing your Italian roots back to Rose, in Cosenza province, Calabria region?

This comprehensive guide empowers you to understand the records available in Rose, unlocking your family’s rich history.
Where to Begin Your Ancestry Journey in Rose
If your ancestral trail leads to Rose, Italy, their vital records are likely housed in two key locations:

  • Rose City Hall Archives: Established in 1809, these archives hold civil registry records like births, marriages, and deaths for Rose residents since then.
  • Rose Parish Churches: For records pre-dating 1809 or for religious ceremonies, exploring Rose’s parish church archives might be necessary.

Civil Records in Rose

In towns and villages of Calabria and in Cosenza province civil registry offices were established in 1809: it means that you could find your ancestors records in Rose Town Hall archives as of that date.

(If your goal is to get your Italian Citizenship and you need official certificates from Rose Municipality, follow this link).

So, if your ancestors lived in Rose during the past centuries, then you should start your family research from the City Office of Rose to know more: our local expert is ready to help you in your research!
With his deep knowledge of people and local history he will assist you not only finding names and dates (births, marriages, deaths) but he will reveal to you many other precious information on the life of your ancestors available in the old registers.

  • Professions: do you know what your ancestors did for a living? Our genealogist will be able to give you this info!
  • Addresses: the house where your family lived (a great information if you intend to visit Rose !)

    stats

    To go on quickly in your research is important to know if the last name you are investigating is a frequent surname in Rose. As more your surname is common, as more it could be difficult to find the right branch of your ancestors family in Rose archives, expecially if you have not exact dates (there could be cases of homonymy).
    It’s useful for you to know that some of the most common surnames in Cosenza province are:
    Aiello, Barone, Bruno, Caputo, Caruso, Chiappetta, De Luca, De Marco, De Rose, Esposito, Falcone, Ferraro, Filice, Fusaro, Gabriele, Gagliardi, Gallo, Garofalo, Gaudio, Gencarelli, Gentile, Giordano, Greco, Guido, Leone, Longo, Madeo, Marino, Martino, Mazzei, Morrone, Nicoletti, Nigro, Palermo, Perri, Perrone, Porco, Presta, Pugliese, Rizzo, Romano, Ruffolo, Russo, Salerno, Santoro, Spadafora, Sposato, Veltri.

    Church Records in Rose

    Church archives in Cosenza province may store even older information. You will find religious records of the same events (births, marriages and deaths) but, most important, you could go further back in time!
    So in case you would like to go back in centuries, it’s good for you to know that the parish registers in Calabria started during 1500!

    Parish archives are far less accessible expecially from abroad and very hard to read and decipher if you are not used and skilled.
    But our local genealogists, are graduated in history and archivistics so, with their expertise, they can research the church registers of Rose on your behalf to gather info about your family history during centuries.

    In case you want to visit churches, these are the addresses of parishes active today in Rose:

    S. MARIA ASSUNTA – Via S. Maria Assunta

    For our experience, if you plan to come here to visit Rose, we always suggest to start the research months before the arrival.
    This because a comprehensive genealogy research is time consuming!

    Starting from home, you will have time to get a complete research avoiding to waste your holidays in the offices or in the churches dealing with italian bureaucracy .
    (Remember that archives are not open to public and officers and priests are not required by law to give you access to the local archives)
    With the results gathered by our genealogist and translated in your language before your arrival, you will have the possibility to plan carefully your visit.
    In this way you will have more free time to enjoy your tour to the roots on your ancestors footsteps.

    Another important source of information are the notary documents available to expert researchers in the State Archives of Cosenza.

        1. Hi Mary

          Thank you, Sarina

      1. Hi Gina. Francesco Ferraro was born in Rose on 31 May 1890, record 50, to Michele Ferraro and Rosa Pugliese.

    7. Hello! There is a framed Coat of Arms on my husband’s grandfather’s wall for the Barcello (anticamente chiamata Barcelli) family that notes a famous doctor from Florence named Giovanni Barcello b. 1712 d. 1783. It also notes his “figlio” who must be his grandson named Ottaviano Barcello, b. 1856 and was the first professor of Santa Maria Nuovo di Firenze. Are these men relatives of the Rose Barcello families? I’m having trouble finding the link between these ancestors and Domenico Barcello (married to Filomena Carmela Mammone) who is my husband’s 3x Great Grandfather.

    8. Searching for relatives. My grandfather was named Raffaele LONGO or Ralph Longo. He was born in Rose on September 29 1896. My grandmother‘s name was Josephine Chiapetta born on December 15, 1901.

      1. Hi Andrew,My Italian grandparents were from Rosa.My dad was an MD in Greenwich CT and one of his closest colleagues who used be on call to cover each other was a Dr.Bria.I don’t remember his first name.

    9. Hello , i am looking for Gennaro Cimbalo and family from rose ,
      his daughter Camenia Cimbalo. birth 20 Sep 1874. death 1914 i believe.
      married to Guiseppe Longo(looking for date of death for him)
      any help on this family would be gratefull

    10. My husband & I visited Rose in July of 2004 & met my great Zia’s, Elena & Adelada Barcello. They in invited Frank who owned the jewelry store to translate.
      This is good information. Was surprised not to see the Barcello surname as we know there were many siblings a couple of generations ago. Perhaps they moved away. My grandfather, Joseph Barcello settled in Stamford Connecticut.

      1. Barcello , there is a pino barcello aka joseppe not spelt right…. family from rose , he now lives in lamedzia …he wrote a book on the barcello’s , talaricos and mammones from rose //not sure if he is any relation to you

    11. I am the grandson of James Francis Perna and Anna Morano Perna, who lived in Greenwich, CT.

      The parents of my Grandfather, James Perna were Michele Perna and Cherubina Cosentino, who are both buried
      in the Putnam Cemetery Greenwich, Fairfield County, Connecticut, USA

      Michele Perna was born in 1864 in Rose, Calabria, Italy.

      On March 24, 1883, Michele Perna at age 19 years arrived at Castle Garden at the Battery in lower Manhattan. Castle Garden served as the immigration entry point. Ellis Island didn’t open until 1892. He traveled on a steamer with his closest friend Gaetano Smeriglio. The steamer was the S.S. Burgundia, and it had sailed from Naples, Italy.

      Michele married Cherubina Cosentino on June 7, 1889. On April 5, 1892, they had a baby they named James.
      James Perna was my grandfather.
      Michele died in 1906 at 45 years old in Riverside and is buried in Greenwich, CT.

      The parents of my Grandmother, Anna Morano Perna were Antonio Morano and Clementina Belmonte Morano. I do not know their anscestry.

      I notice several familiar names that show up in replies on this page. Examples are Belmonte, Cosentino, Perna and Smeriglio. It looks as though Greenwich, Ct was a popular destination for some of the same families who are still in Rose and other parts of Calabria.J

          1. We have Cipolla’s in our family. That name is usually in Sicily. Historically Agrigento. There are Facebook groups for Agrigento and Southern Italy that you can follow and ask for help.

        2. So interesting to read this. My great grandmother was Rosa Dolcetti (maiden name Covello). I am wondering what info you have on my great grandfather, Daniele Dolcetti? My grandfather was Filipe Dolcetti and he was married to Fiorina Buccieri.

          1. Hi Becky. Daniele Dolcetti was born in Grimaldi on 4 Jan 1887, record 2. He married Rosa Palma Covello on 4 Nov 1911.

    14. Hi! I am looking for any info on an Antonio Scarpelli born ~1842 or his son Francesco Scarpelli born ~1875 or other son Pietro born ~1873. They left Rose, Italy in June 1892. I believe that Antonio was married to a Rosa Steri.

      Thank you in advance!

      1. New information to add to my post is that apparently both Antonio and Rosa returned to Italy in 1907, leaving their now married sons in America.

      2. Antonio Francesco Scarpelli was born in Rose on 18 Sept 1842. His father was Pietro Scarpelli, born in Rose on 2 July 1799 to Bernardo Scarpelli and Rosa Ursomarso.

        Antonio Francesco Scarpelli died on 11 March 1909.

        1. Oh wow! Thank you SO much for all this information, Mary.

          What you don’t know, cause I didn’t tell you is that some of the dates I had match up to what you say exactly so I’m pretty sure I’ve this brick wall I’ve been fighting to figure out information has been knocked down thanks to you!

          Do you happen to have a birth date for Rosa Caterina Intrieri or any information on her?

          Thank you again!

          1. If it is OK with you, let’s continue with the Scarpelli family before we go to the Rosa Caterina Intrieri family (I do have a lot of information on her family.) The parents of Pietro Scarpelli were Bernardo Scarpelli and Rosa Ursomarso. Bernardo and Rosa had two known children, Pietro and Michele Scarpelli who was born 15 May 1786, married Anna Capuano on 31 August 1812, had nine children, and he died on 27 January 1851. Bernardo was the son of Michele Scarpelli and Bernardo was deceased by 1812, the date of the marriage of his son Michele. Rosa Ursomarso, who died in Rose on 7 August 1820, was the daughter of Francesco Ursomarso, who died before 1811, and Ippolita Tropea. Ippolita, who died on 15 March 1811, was the daughter of Matteo Tropea and Giacinta Librandi.

            1. Hi Mary!

              Thank you again for all of this information! I think you’ve completely busted my brick wall 🙂 I’m so excited to have this information. Is there anything else you can tell me?

My great-grandmother married by proxy to my great-grandfather Sebastiano Cipolla (from Caltagirone, Sicily), but I don’t know where the marriage took place since when they got married she was in Italy and he was in Argentina.

      Thank you, Nicolás (from Argentina).

      1. Hello Nicolas. I have some information for you about the parents of Mafalda Siciliano. Her father, Rocco Federico Siciliano was born in Rose on 3 February 1900 to Michele Maria Siciliano and Maria Carmenia (Carmela) Micieli. Her mother, Filomena Giulietta Chiappetta was born in Rose on 10 April 1892 to Luigi Chiappetta and Rosaria Luisa Greco. There is a record of the marriage between Mafalda Siciliano and Sebastiano Cipolla in Rose. I do not have any details about the marriage to share with you. Regards, Mary

        1. Thank you very much, really. I thought that I would never know that information, I am very grateful!!! Grazie mille!!!

          Is there really no more information on Sebastiano and Mafalda’s marriage? Does the date of marriage or information on Sebastiano’s parents not appear by chance?

          Do you have any information about the siblings of my great-grandmother Mafalda Siciliano? Their names were Giuseppe (she emigrated to Canada), Carmela and Iolanda and presumably they were older than her, so they were born before 1931. Her mother Filomena Chiappetta had been widowed before she married with my great-great-grandfather Rocco Siciliano, so I don’t know if all his brothers had the same last name as my great-grandmother, maybe some of them did. Are there any Giuseppe, Carmela or Iolanda born in Rose whose mother is Filomena Chiappetta? Please help! Any information you can give me will be greatly appreciated! Greetings, Nicolás.

          1. Sorry for my English, Giuseppe was male. Filomena Chiappetta was widowed at age 22 (around 1914), and later married my great-great-grandfather Rocco.

            1. Hello Nicolas. I wish that I could help you more, but I only have access to information in Rose from 1809-1910. The family you are asking about lived after 1910. I have a lot of information on the ancestors of Rocco Federico Siciliano and Filomena Giulietta Chiappetta, but nothing after 1910. I am sorry.

            2. Hello, Mary. I am sorry, I did not know that you could only access to documents that were instrumented before 1910.
              On the other hand, I would be very thankful if you could provide me some information about the ancestors of Rocco Siciliano and Filomena Chiappetta. I am very grateful for the help you are giving me.

            3. Hello Nicolas. Rocco Federico Siciliano was born in Rose on 3 February 1900 to Michele Maria Siciliano and Maria Carmenia Micieli. Michele Maria Siciliano was born in Rose on 1 September 1852 to Pasquale Antonio Siciliano and Rosa Chiappetta. Maria Carmenia Micieli was born in Rose on 25 January 1863 to Ferdinando Federico Micieli and Chiara Filomena Marzullo. Michele Maria Siciliano and Maria Carmenia Micieli married in Rose on 4 November 1880 and had 12 children before 1910. Michele Maria Siciliano died in Rose on 20 September 1910.

              Filomena Giulietta Chiappetta was born in Rose on 10 April 1891 to Luigi Chiappetta and Rosaria Luisa Greco. Luigi Chiappetta was born in Rose on 20 June 1849 to Antonio Chiappetta and Maria Rosa Marsico. Rosaria Luisa Greco was born in Rose on 18 October 1852 to Pietro Francesco Greco and Marianna Sppezzano. Luigi Chiappetta and Rosaria Luisa Greco were married in Rose on 17 September 1876 and had 7 children.

              Luigi Chiappetta was first married to Anna Maria Francesca Docimo and they had two children. She died in Rose on 7 June 1876 and then he married Rosaria Luisa Greco.

            4. Is incredible! I thought I was never going to find out all of this. You helped me reconstruct a part of my family history, even reaching my great-grandmother’s great-grandparents. Thank you so much for everything Mary! Greetings from Argentina!

        I notice several familiar names that show up in replies on this page. Examples are Belmonte, Cosentino, Perna and Smeriglio. It looks as though Greenwich, Ct was a popular destination for some of the same famlies who are still in Rose and other parts of Calabria.
        Seeing names, on this page, which are connected to my own family is not the only surprise. I also see names, on this page, which among the friends of my family. Those names include Curcio, Garofalo, Greco and Bruno.

    43. Hello,my name is Leo Anderson. I would like some help researching my ancestors from the Rose, Cosenza area. My granmdma Evelyn Cosentino (Anderson) was born in Connecticut but her parents were from Rose, Cosenza, Italy. I was wondering if you could help me to find my ancestors from there especially with my Great Grandma Rose Concetta Cufone (Cosentino). No one in my family knows anything about the Cufone’s. And since I live in Louisiana, USA I can’t find any Italian documents or ancestral records for my ancestors from Rose/ Marano Principato / Marano Marchesato. I have been able to trace all parts of my family tree back for many generations except for my grandma’s Italian ancestors. So I’d like some help with this if you would be willing to help me, thank you! 🙂

      1. I am heading to Rose, Italy and will be in town on September 10th. I have seen for awhile that there is 1 resident in Rose with the same last name (Aquila). Is there any way to find out if he/she is a descendant of Francisco and Filomina Aquila from mid 1800’s? My Great Grandfather Rocco Rosario Aquila did in fact come from Rose and immigrated to the US in 1907. I will be meeting with Orozco DeMarco on 9/12 at the town hall to obtain the documents of my ancestors.

        1. I can help you with early records from Rose. Rocco Rosario Aquila was born in Rose on 26 Sept 1884 to Francesco Paolo Aquila and Filomena Carmina Cava.

      2. I show a Rosa Concetta Cufone was born in Rose on 18 October 1896 to Domenico Cufone and Maria Bruno. I also show a Rosa Concetta Cufone married Girolamo Gioacchino Cosentino, but I can not prove that the two Rosa Concetta Cufones are the same person.

      3. Hello Leo. Rosa Concetta Cufone was born in Rose on 18 October 1896. Her father was Domenico Angiolo Leonardo Cufone, the son of Antonio Pasquale Cufone and Maria Santa Donato. Her mother was Maria Lauretana Bruno, the daughter of Nicola Bruno and Filomena Costabile. Rosa Concetta Cufone married Girolamo Gioacchino Cosentino. He was born on 18 December 1894. His parents were Michele Cosentino and Maria Rosaria Boschelli.

      4. I am the grandson of James Francis Perna and Anna Morano Perna, who lived in Greenwich, CT.

        My Great Grandfather was Michele Perna who was born in Rose.
        Michele Perna married Cherubina Cosentino on June 7, 1889.
        It looks as though Greenwich, Ct was a popular destination for some of the same famlies who are still in Rose and other parts of Calabria.
