    My grandmother ,born Aug. 3rd 1899, Angelica Balestrina, she was the daughter of Antonio Balestrina and Elise Ionnotti. She has one surviving son in the United States , he is 104 yrs old . Wondering what relatives I might still have in the area?

    My Father was born in Vella Agricola on the 17 March 1901 – (could also be the 19 March)
    He came to the United States in very early 1900’s via Ellis Island and into New York
    His papers here have him as Joseph Russo (No middle name) So he was probably born
    there as Giuseppe Russo. His Mother was from Teano. When I was there in early 1960’s no one could
    help me locate Vella Agricola – most probably because as I heard as a young child, the village
    was destroyed in the WW II war. It was in a New York paper my mother had saved.
    Any help would be most appreciated – my Nephew is trying to put the family pieces together.

    My father Benjamino (Benjamin) J. Muccio was bord June 1, 1907 in Valle Agricola, his mother was Rosa Pezza and his father was John. I would like to see if a birth certificate and baptism certificate is available. He came to the United States when he was 5 years old.

    • Riccardo says:

      Hi, I’m from Valle Agricola and I was looking for italoamericans coming from my same town out of curiosity, Pezza and Muccio are both common names in Valle, I also have a few distant relatives called Muccio in the states, if you are related to the Splendorio family we could have same ancestry! Do you have any relatives called Splendorio?

  5. Nina says:

    I am looking for my ancestor Felix Tito, born in 1851 in Agricola. However, I am not sure if Felix was his birth name or if that was a common nickname at the time. His occupation may have been farming. Felix was married to Graziella Perrillo and they had a son, Vincenzo. They all eventually left Italy though Naples or Sicily to New York City, USA in 1886. What is the best way for me to find out more information on either Felix or Graziella? I am currently located in the USA.

    Thank you

    Nina

      Hi Nina,

      My grandfather was James Tito, son of Vito Tito, son of Felix and Graziella. I am currently running into the same roadblock. Were you able to learn anything about them?

      Thanks,

      Will
