        1. Hi Anne, Sorry it’s been so long but I got a couple hits. Luigi Afliri and Raffaela Dellamonica are my 2nd great-grandparents. Her parents might be Luigi Dellamonica and Marianna Vasso/Bass, my 3rd grand-parents.

    19. I am researching the Marziale and Pastore names from Montecorvino, Rovella, Salerno. My great grandparents were Nicola Marziale (b. 1870 est) and Anna Pastore (b. 1875 est). They had at least 2 sons, Alfredo b. 1890, immigrated to US in 1909 and Ernesto (my grandfather) b. 1892, immigrated to US in 1909. The Commune sent me a birth record for Ernesto, but said they did not have marriage records or death records for Nicola and Anna, who did not immigrate to the US. Does anyone know anything about this family? Does anyone know when the records from this area will be online as some of the other regions are presently available? Thank You.

    20. Hi,

      I am trying to do my Italian Genealogy. My grandmother Santa (Santina) Tavarone was born in Monte Corvino Rovella abt 1892 to Pasquale Tavarone & Graziella Cerino Tavarone. She married Filippo Santese born abt 1882 to Vito Santese and Anna Nestro. I think he was born in Monte Corvino Puglia or possibly Rovella. My grandparents came to the US in 19ll & settled in the Bronx, New York.

        1. Hi,

          I forgot that I posted a message on this site. I do a lot of genealogy on my side & my husbands. As far as Cerino goes, I only know that this was my great grandmothers maiden name and that there was a Michele Cerino living in Brooklyn, NY that was my fathers godparent and that his daughter married a Rao. Both men were in the shoe business.


          1. Howdy: my grandfather Giuseppe Cerino came from Montecorvino to Philadelphia around 1880 and there are descendants of his here and others who have moved on to other places in the US.
