    I have a memorial card in my family photos of Maria Carmela Falco, (wife of Nicola Falco) born in Saviano on 12th July, 1864, and died London 6th May, 1934.
    I know nothing else of her and do not remember her name being mentioned during my childhood, but I think that, maybe, she was somehow connected to my family.
    I am currently trying to locate the birth record of my great great grandmother, Vita Sforza. She died in San Donato Val di Comino, but was born and married elsewhere. I am wondering therefore if the Falco family was somehow related to her.
    The records for Saviano do not appear in the Italian State Archives and so I wonder if anybody can provide some information to help me in my researches.#
    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    I am researching my grandfather’s ancestory. His name was Giovanni Notaro, born on January 8, 1886 in Saviano (we believe). He emigrated to the USA sometime in the early 1900’s (say 1900 – 1910). We’re not sure if he had any brothers or sisters. Any advice on how to track whether or not he had any siblings would be appreciated.

  10. MariJo says:

    My cousin and I will be traveling to the Naples are to find out about our Grandfathers we believe are from either Saviano or Avellino. We all lived in Chicago with the Name “Caccavallo” but have found out the original name may be “Caccavalle” Any information is appreciated.

    • Vito says:

      Hi Marijo, I don’t know if it is now too late but i think I can help you track the descendants of the Caccavalle family

      My mother was from Saviano Province of Naples, and came over to the UK in 1952, my mum knew the Caccavalle family Liliana and Chic or Francesco they were actually not so much from Saviano but a very small Hamlett of Saviano called Sirigo not sure of the spelling exactly

      Anyway Liliana and Chico came over to the UK about 5 – 10 years later and startlingly enough I ended up going to school in London with one of the 4 sons my friends name was Ciro, his elder brothers were Saverio Giovanni , then Ciro then the youngest Pompeo we all knew each other for many years to come, right up until the 1990s Liliana and Chic are since deceased over 10- 20 years ago,they lived up to that time in Ducketts Road , Haringay london N8 , I don’t know where everyone went after that but I believe the eldest son and the youngest went back to Sirigo and probably married don’t know what happened to Giovanni but Ciro married back in the late 80s to an English girl I don’t have a forwarding address at the moment but he lives or lived in the UK just so you know Caccavalle is not a common name in Naples and I do know that part of the family did also immigrate to the USA way before the Caccavalle family came to the UK so I am almost sure we are talking about the same people, As mentioned I knew the family the Mum and the Dad very well and Ciro and I hung out together in the 80s and early 90s so I may have other information should you want it I hope that you find what you are looking for or indeed have already found it if you require any more information let me know I would be happy to help Regards Vito

    I am looking for information regarding my grandfather’s ancestry in Italy. His name is Joseph Julian in America, but he was Giuseppe Giuliano in Italy. I recently came across his funeral book and lists him as being born March 16, 1876 in Saviano Pro Salerno, Italy. I have no other historical information other than he was married to Stella (Estelle) Papera from Benevento, Italy. He had another relative (possible brother) named Frank Julian who I’m guessing would be Francesco Giuliano. I’m not sure where to look next as my searches have come up empty…though I’ll keep trying. Any guidance you can provide would be wonderful.
