    Looking for ancestor Andreo DiSarno born around 1868, had residents in Poggiomarino in 1906 when he left, and arrived in US. He had an uncle named Santolo Sorrentino already in US. Andreo was married to Rose.
    Does anyone already have Andreo, Rose or Santolo in their records?

    • Joey says:

      Angelo, my name is Joey. My Father’s Father was Samuel DiSarno born in Italy 1919 and immigrated to the US as a child. His mother was named Rose. He had a brother named Neil and sisters named Mary and Ida. They all settled in the Buffalo, NY area. I’m told our family comes from Poggiomarino. And growing up I was told 2 branches of the Di Sarno tree immigrated to the US from Italy. Some originally stayed in the NYC/New Jersey area, some went to Buffalo. I was also told growing up that all
      Di Sarnos in the US come from that same family in that area in Italy.

    Hello! Looking for information on a great great grandfather named Savino Caliendo. He was born in Italy around 1855, married a woman named Lugio/Lugia (spelling?), had a son Charles around 1890. He and his family moved to New York in 1899. The passenger list document shows that he left via Naples, and that his last residence was Poggiomarino. I’d be grateful for anything else you can find out or any direction you can give me. Thank you.

    Hello! My grandfather Salvatore Conza came to NY Ellis Island at the turn of the century and was from Poggiomarino, Italy. I will visit there next year and would like to visit his home site address, should it still be there. He married a local girl Jenny Giordano and they had many children in NY. My grandfather was in the Italian army for a spell and played the clarinet for the local funeral marches there in Poggiomarino.

      Found your message and shoes it to me today, so I thought I’d reach out to you! My mothers father was Salvatore Conza (changed to Conzo) who was from Poggiomarino. Figure he must have been related to your grandfather. Would love to hear back from you so we can put the pieces together. Salvatore’s fathers name was Anthony (Antonio?) who was married to Rosaria Guilliana. Salvatore’s brother had a mill in that town? Can’t remember his name (M?) Thank you! Hope you had a good trip in Italy!
