    My great grandfather, Lorenzo Pallante and my grandfather, Joseph Pallante emigrated from Bagnoli Irpino to Brazil and then to the States in the late 1800’s. My grandmother, Lucille Negro, emigrated from Irpino to Brazil as a small child about the same time. Any connections?

    Hi all- I just discovered that my great great grandma Maria Olmitella Patrone was the daughter of Domenico Patrono who was born in “Bagnoli” in 1826. I don’t know which Bagnoli it was. He married Concetta D’Armiento in Deliceto in 1853 where their daughter Olmitella and 4 other children were born. Domenico’s parents were Raffaele Patrono and Rafaela Infante. These are completely new names to the family genologists, as is the location “Bagnoli.” Any info would be greatly appreciated- Thanks!

      Hi Jenna,

      My great grandfather is Domenico Patrone of Bagnoli Irpino but he was born 1896. His father was Lorenzo Patrone and mother was Theresa Nicostri. I realize this doesnt line up exactly with your information, however, Bagnoli Irpino is a very small village and even more so back in the 19th century. I cant help but think there has to be a connection of some kind with this family name. I cant help but think that possibly Lorenzo’s father may have been your Domenico Patrono and the name Domenico got passed down? or some other family connection. Do you have any further information?

We were able to speak with one gentlemen through a gentleman we were traveling with, his name was Pasqaule Vivolo but were not able to determine a family tie. Thank you. Rick Tytko

I have his draft record and in his handwriting it says he was born Sept 1, 1886 in Bagnole Ripino but I think it might be Bagnoli Irpino (its hard to read his handwriting). I’m trying to find Madeline’s maiden name as well and any information about their family lines. I appreciate any help you can give. Thanks!

      My grandfather was Joseph Vivolo, grandmother Lucia. They first moved to Pennsylvania and then came to live in Cleveland, Ohio where they raised their family.
      My cousins and I visited Bagnoli Irpino just last month on October 19th.
      The church and town hall were closed.
      We met a gentleman named Pasqaule Vivolo who told us his grandfather’s name was Vincenzo Vivolo. We were wondering if perhaps Vincenzo was our grandfather’s brother or related in any way. Any information would be appreciated.
