    My great-grandfather, Goffredo Migliarese came to the US in 1902, settling in New York. He was born in Montemiletto on June 9, 1882 possibly to Giacinto Migliarese and Elisa Fusco. I have no idea if he had any siblings. Does anyone know of other Migliarese family members still living in Montemiletto and how I might get in touch to learn more about the family? Is it possible to get a copy of his birth certificate, and how would I do that?

    My great great grandmother came from Montemilleto her name was Maria C. Brogna (Bagnuolo) her husband Antonio Brogan, settled outside of Boston, her father was Achille and her mother was Consilia I believe.. Anyone related?

    • Dianne says:

      My grandfather was Felice Brogna, born there. Came to America, in the 1800’s lived in Roslindale ( Boston) Massachusetts. He was married to Raffaela DiFonzo, I also believe she was from the same town, she passed in 1918, here in Massachusetts, when she was 26. They had one son and three daughters. Family also lived in the North End and in Dedham Mass.

      • Lucky says:

        Hi Dianne,
        My grandfather emigrated from Montemiletto in the late 1800’s. He eventually settled in Washington State. In our family history I have a distant cousin Concetta who married a man named Gaetano “Tony” Brogna. Both Tony and Concetta were born in Montemiletto Italy. Our history shows Tony as the son of Ciruco and Ursula Corella Brogna.

    • Lucky says:

      Hi Janelle. I replied to Dianne also. As I indicated to her my grandfather was from Montemiletto and emigrated to the United States in the late 1800s eventually settling in Washington state. In our family history I have a distant cousin Concetta who married a man named Gaetano “Tony” Brogna. Both Tony and Concetta were born in Montemiletto. Our history also shows Tony as the son of Ciruco and Ursula Corella Brogna. First names are not a match but it was a very small town back then.

  7. Laura says:

    My Nan has recently passed away and it’s only then we realised how little we actually knew about her. She was born Alma Di Orio (think that’s right spelling!) in Montemiletto 15/12/1933.
    She left Italy at the young age of 18 and only returned to Italy for a visit in 1974. I am hoping to find out about her parents and siblings as the family (even her sons/daughters) aren’t 100% on any names and other details of her family when she was young.
    Hope someone can point me in the right direction.thanks Laura
