    22. Hello,

    25. I am trying to find genealogical information on my great grandfather who immigrated to the U.S. from Italy at the age of 17. Records show that his name was listed as Andrea Tucci and he was either from Campania, Avellino, or S’ant Arcangelo. He was born around January 11, 1885. He told his children in later years that he was an only child. His mother’s name was Teresa. We don’t know exactly what the back story is. He said that he was afraid to travel back to Italy because of Mussolini. On his U. S. marriage certificate, his parents are listed as Fudomenicha Tucci and Edipari or Edikari Chenateresa. It could be backwards and the mothers name could have been Chenateresa or maybe Chiara Teresa (??) He did not know how to speak or write English.

      1. My great grandparent as well via my grandmother Antoinetta Tucci. I too believe the name is backwards and Chiara Terisa. There are a number of S. Arcangelo towns. I would guess it’s the town near Sorrento as his wife came from Sorrento. I don’t know for sure but makes sense as Maria Esposito arrived and married Andrea the same year she arrived.

    36. Hello,

      My name is Andrea Martin, and I am searching for relatives in Avellino, Italy who may be related to my great-grandfather Joseph Rescigno. So far I know he was born in the Avellino area on March 17, 1888. He married Amelia Di Biasi, who is thought to have been from around Naples. They had 18 children, nine girls, and nine boys, and lived in Scranton, PA upon immigrating to the U.S. My grandfather’s name was Louis Rescigno. Any help would very much be appreciated!
      Thank you!

      1. You need to get in touch with Saint Rocco’s Church, which I believe is now run as part of Saint Anthony’s church in Dunmore, PA (near Scranton). Many parishoners of Saint Rocco’s church are the children of immigrants from the province of Avellino (the towns of Avellino, Sant’ Angelo dei Lombardi, Guardia Lombardi, Torella di Lombardi, Montella). I remember hearing a story many years ago about a tough, hard-working woman who birthed over a dozen kids. If I remember correctly, she gave once gave birth, put the infant in a wooden dynamite box filled with straw and went right back to work. It has to be the same woman. In the Scranton-Dunmore Area that name is pronounced both as “Reh-sig-no” and “Ray-sheen-yo”.

      2. Andrea, Joseph Rescigno was my mother’s uncle. He had 18 children, and his last children were twins. My mother came from Avellino. Joseph had a brother Marco that settled in Scarsdale, NY. Marco had 17 children. I don’t know if any of them are alive. I just noticed your request 11.19.22. Hope you see this.

    37. Hello, I am trying to find out the name of my great grandmother. From what I can discover, my grandmother Anna Festa(1892–1964) was born in or near Avellino, Italy. She was brought to the United States by her father, Joseph (Guisippi ??) Festa in April of 1899 when she was 7 years old. I know the name of my grandfathers second wife but not the mother of my grandmother. She apparently died, possibly in childbirth, when my grandmother was born. Any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    38. I am looking for the Bono family which was my grandmother’s maiden name, to see how far back. Also, to see if there are any Bono’s that are related to me today.

      Thank You

    39. Hello,

      My name is Sarafina Elia and I am looking to locate a birth certificate of my great-grandmother, Antonietta Russo (certificates have various spellings of her name, like Antonetta or Antionetta). She was born in Squillani, Avellino and her birthday is 13 June 1889. She emigrated to the USA in 1914, married Giovanni Pirozzi and had seven children.

      I am not sure where I should begin looking for a birth certificate, since Squilani seems to be a very small village that is not easily accessible without a car. Any help is really appreciated! Grazie

    40. I would love to know if I have any ancestors living in San Pietro, Avellino. My grandparents emigrated to Ogden, Utah in the early 1900’s.

      Any information is sincerely appreciated!
      Thank you.

      1. I have a GG grandfather named Joseph Pierro, I believe he or was one of his ancestors migrated to England from Italy prior to 1800. I wonder if you have any insight on if they may have changed their name from de Piero to Pierro?
        Thank you for your time!

        1. My grandmother is (was) Maria Pierro, from Avellino. She was raised by some woman by the last name of Porcino? Maria’s birth mother was unmarried and gave Maria to Mrs. Porcino to raise. No known records of that “transaction”. Maria’s birth mother married the man who was Maria’s father (after his wife died) and they travelled to Avellino to the courtroom to ask for Maria to return with them. The judge asked Maria (then about 8 years old) to come and sit beside him and explained who this lady was and asked Maria if she wanted to go back with her real mother and father) (not sure where they were from). Maria said she only knew one mother and it was Brandilino Porcio(?) And the judge made that final.
          So Maria Pierro as no birth records, no marriage records that I can find. I understand the father’s name was Devincenza (D;Vincenza” Divencenza.

          There seem to be no records for Maria Pierro. She has three daughters. I know little about her husband but the Pierro family came to America and settled in Fitchburg, MA

    45. Hello!
      I’m looking for information regarding my De Vingo family line. It’s difficult to tell exactly where they come from prior to immigration to the U.S., “Naples” is listed as their port of departure. Through other forums and some notes in our own family history records, we feel Avellino is where they may be from. We also have records noting that they were protestant and left Avellino due to religious persecution. We will be in Avellino next week and would love some help or direction on where to search!
      Thank you so much!
