Family have told me he had a brother who went to the US but I am unable to find concrete information firms to be able to trace ancestors/family in the US.

      Many thanks

      1. I am the great great grandson of Andrea Prudente from Nusco. Name changed to Andrew Prudente in New York. Could be we are distant relatives .

    13. I’ll be visiting Nusco this summer but only for a day with my family and some friends. My great grandparents on my Father’s side were both from Nusco: Anthony A Pastore (1875-1976) and Lucy Pasquale (1880-1950?). I have been doing some ancestry research and got some great info from someone working on the Nusco Birth/Marriage records. I have done art history research many times in Italy so know my way around records and archives and would like to know if anyone could pass along contact info for the churches in Nusco and/or let me know if there are accessible records.

      One post online mentioned info from St Amato Church in Nusco. would anyone have leads or contact info at the church? I am an art historian and focus on Italian Renaissance Art so know my way around archives and read Italian and some Latin as well and can muddle with clerical script and other notary scribble alright. My family said if I can get into an archive and see records they will give me a few hours and go have some fun without me!

      Our current list of names includes: Pastore, Pasquale, Scotti, Cavaliere, Pepe, DelSordo, Contino, Iuliano, Mongelluzzo, Della Pollo/a, Chieffa, DiMita and Prudente. Every time I see a bit more I add more names. I have heard “local” church records go back to the 1500s and would love to poke around a bit and if I can contact someone in advance that might be better than just arriving and knocking on the door!

      If you have any contact information or suggestions they would be much appreciated.

      All best and thanks

I know very little about my maternal gradfather though and wonder if he could be Giuseppe. There is very little info online and i’ve not yet been able to travel to Italy to research for myself (and fear it’ll be a while before i can). If you have any info you’d be willing to share i’d be most grateful.
