    Rumor has it my grandfather was from Galluccio. We found his name as Charles Adolph Bonet. We met one of his cousins in San Francisco early’90’s. His name was Pat Di or de Pattrillo. They were shoe makers. He left my father ( youngest of five children) in a Catholic orphanage- eventually taken in by the Doherty’s of San Francisco. He also spent time in Detroit Michigan

    Hi…I am looking for any information about my great grandfather, Giacomino De Luca born approx. Jan 1888 to Emedio De Luca and Maria Abberco, in Gallucia, Caserta, Italy. He emigrated to Canada somewhere around 1906 and eventually established himself and his family in St. Catharines, Ont. Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks…Laura

      Hello Laura…I am Mary’s sister-in-law and she is married to my brother Tommy and our mother was Ruth DeLuca born in Hamilton Ontario Canada in 1921. Her father/my grandfather was Dominic DeLuca born approximately 1895 in Galluccio Caserta Italy. His brother Giacomo left Italy and went to Canada Port Dalhousie/St. Catharines Ontario. Our family called him Uncle Frank. I believe he had 8 or 9 children and his wife’s name was Aurora. Our family lived in Hamilton Ontario (about 1 hour away from St. Catharines). Evenutally our family moved to Grimsby Ontario which is closer to St. Catharines (about 1/2 hour away) so we would go for a drive on a Sunday and visit relatives in St. Catharines ( I was very young in those days) but I remember that Uncle Frank had a farm on Ontario Street and he eventually sold land to people that wanted to open businesses on the Street. I know that his daughter’s names were Bernadette (Babe), Rose, Marguerite (she made the best fudge),and Mignonette…and so on. Not sure where you live, perhaps USA or Italy? In 1976 I went to visit my relatives in Galluccio Caserta Galluccio – I stayed with Claudio DeLuca and his wife Elda and two sons in a new home at the bottom of the vineyards. Claudio was a school teacher and taught French and History – what a beautiful family. Oh ment to mentios that Claudio was the son of Anthony which was a brother to my grandfather Dominic. Have you found any other relatives which are related to us. Was you mother a DeLuca? Looking forward to hearing from you.

        Wow….I’m so sorry I didn’t revisit this site sooner….I sent out so many inquiries with few responses…but, none the less, yes, we are family! And I’m so happy to have heard from you. My Great grandfather Giacomo De Luca seemed to try on several first names after coming to Canada….first, it was Frank….eventually he settled on James. Yes, my “Papa” as my ma called him…she was his granddaughter from his first born Violet…..had a fruit farm in St. Cath, and everyone came there to visit. All the daughter’s names you’ve listed are my great aunties…..I was born in Niagara Falls, Ont. and currently reside in Ingersoll, Ont.

      Hi….I’m looking for information,too, about my great grandfather, Giacomino De Luca who emigrated to Canada at the in the early 1900’s. His marriage certificate listed his parents as Emedio De Luca and Maria Abberco…which sound very similar to your husbands’ relatives and his place of birth was Galluccio, Caserta…. Would love to exchange info…

    • Laura says:

      Hi Mary…I saw your post on an ItalianSide Genealogy website….I think your husband and I share common great, great grandparents, that being Maria Abberco and Elmedio De Luca….or some similar spelling….My ancestor was their son Giacommio, later Frank…and finally James….who settled in the St. Catharines, On. Canada are….if would care to share information I would be most grateful…..Laura Horton

    I am looking for information on my husband’s family. They were from Galluccio.

    His grandfather was Gennaro Iadeluca (June 1871). He was married to Assunta Ricci (15 Aug 1871.

    His father was Carmiale Iadeluca (28 May 1905).
    He traveled with siblings Guiseppe Ercole and Maria. Ercole and Maria were born in the US.

    It’s my understanding that they came to America,stayed a while, went back and returned to the US.

    I have an arrival date of August 19, 1909, sailing from Napoli. This is the second voyage.

    We are planning a visit to Italy this year and would love to travel to the area.

    Thank you.

    I would like to connect with my grandfather and grandmother’s birthplace in Galluccio. I have been to Barga Italy 3 times but only for 3 months at a time. I’m told that I can get a dual citizenship with
    Italy because my Riccio relatives, both grand parents and great grand parents came from Italy, Galluccio as best as I can find out so far.
    How can I find out more of the needed info on them to be able to start the paperwork to become an Italian citizen? Thanks.
    Hope you can help me. I am an American Religious Brother living in Orleans
