    1. Searching the Filandino family in Olevano sul Tusciano. My grandfather Isadoro Filandino was born 1888 had a brother Angelo Filandino birthdate unknown. As far as I know his parents were Guiseppi Filandino and Maria Rosa Carruccio. He married Thersea Difeo daughter of Matteo DiFeo and Palma DiGregorio They married in Olevano sul Tusciano on April 26, 1914 and I believe shortly after they married they came to the US and settled in Norristown, PA. The only information seems to stop at great great grandparents names not even sure if they were from Olevano sul Tusciano???

      1. My great grandfather was Angelo Filandino born Sept. 29. 1887. He was married to Mary Di Nenna. They settled in Norristown PA and had 7 children Joseph jr who was killed in ww2 at age 26, Rose, Grace, Alba, William, and Dolores. I am Dolores Filandino Fogel’s granddaughter, she passed away Aug. 8, 2017 followed by my mother Michelle Fogel Sullivan. She was an only child. Every one I listed above is deceased , sorry to report. I have a sister and many other cousins I can list. I have 3 children Seth 16, Gianna 14 and Olivia 11 Hercolini which was my former marrital name. I am remarried and my dob is 1/27/77. I was born 11 months prior to my great grandfather’s death in 11/1977. I am having trouble getting much info from Italy as well due to the history of my family going all the way back to the 1800s . However, I have returned to Norristown so I could attempt to do some research.

    2. Searching the Verderame family in Olevano sul Tusciano. My great grandfather Angelo was born about 1846. He married Gelsomina Pastorina in 1872. My grandfather Antonio was born in 1888. Family Search records have given me quite a bit of information on Angelo and Gelsomina’s marriage and the birth of their children BUT cannot seem to take Angelo back any further. Marriage record says he is son of Rafaelle and Theresa DiZenzo. Can’t find them either. Perhaps the Verderames came from another town?

    3. I am looking for information for my husbands Maiorano family.

      Giovanni Maiorano born Olevano 1885 came to U.S. settled in Wilmington, Delaware. Married Domenica Maria Lambiase born 1885 Olevano also came to U.S.

      Giovanni’s lineage as we know it is followed

      Son of Francesco Angelo Maiorano of Olevano & Lucrezia Borgia born 1861-Unknown.

      We know there are still Maiorano families in Olevano. Looking for information on the next generations of the Maiorano family past these people.

      Domenica’s family came from Pietramelara. Her name has been written in some documents as Maria Domenica.

      Daughter of the following

      Francesco Antonio Lambiase born 1854 Pietramelara & Maria Antonia Rosa Buonovova or Marianotonia Buonocore of Pietramelara born 1859. It is said she died giving birth to her daughter Domenica in 1885.

      Their Children

      Sabato born Sept 11, 1883 Olevano came to U.S. settled in Wilmington, Delaware
      Domenica Maria born SEPT. 18, 1885 Olevano, came to U.S. settled in Wilmington with husband Giovanni Maiorano.

      Any information you can provide will be much appreciated. We are interested in knowing more of the lineage of these families.

    4. Hello, I am looking to find a few details relating to Felice Desio (De Sio in some records) born Oct 22, 1872 in Olveano Sul Tusciano.

      I would like to find any information on his wife Eva (unknown maiden name) born Jan 19 1870.
      Felice’s parents were Costantino (born 18 Jul 1848 in Olevano) and I believe Mariantonia Langone
      Felice had at least one brother and one sister that I am aware of though I cannot find information on the sister other than she had a son named James T?amantano (records are smudged) born in 1888.

      I would equally be interested in finding anything about Felice’s wife and mother if possible, as the only databases I have been able to find follow the male line. I have gotten as far as Costantino’s (1848) father Felice and mother Caterina Rocco but nothing beyond.

      Thank you for any direction or assistance!

      1. Hi DD,

        Looks like we’re looking for the same person. Felice Desio is my great, great, grandfather. If you find more info, please let me know!

        Thanks!

    5. I believe my paternal grandfather was born in area circa 1886. He was a foundling, and was given the name Vito Caravito by the Church. Were there nunneries or orphanages in the area at that time in which a foundling infant might have been placed and which might have records ? He was utimatly adopted along with a young Pepe girl by Anna Pastorino and brought to the USA in 1896 to be with her husband, Francisco DiGiglio.
      Thank you

    6. I have a NY passenger list that states in 1913, my children’s Great Grandfather Carmine Petrizzo came from “Olevano”. He was born May 4th, 1892. On the passenger list it states his next of kin is his brother, the spelling is hard to read but i believe it states “Onzaio Petrizzo”. Carmine may have been a twin.
      We have looked for information on him and cannot find much, until i found this site. Possibly you could help?

    7. Hello,

      I’ve located a NY passenger list that states my Great Grandfather Gennaro Gagliardino came from Olevano Sul Tusciano in 1909 on the SS San Giovanni. Gennaro was born in Italy on August 16 1877. Several years later his wife Gelsomina Santoro arrived in NY in 1912 with their 1st child Ernestine. Based upon the 1910 US census, it appears they were married sometime in Italy around 1903.

      I’m not sure how to refine this information any further, and am wondering if below is enough info to send to Italy to help locate the following:

      Gennaro Gagliardino’s Birth Certificate (Born August 16, 1877, parents unknown)
      Gennaro Gagliardino/Gelsomina Santoro wedding certificate (~married 1903)
      Gelsomina Santoro’s Birth Certificate (born August 15, 1881, parents Diego Santoro, Maria Gaetana Greco)
      Ernestine’s Birth Certificate (Born Oct 27, 1904, parents Gennaro Gagliardino, Gelsomina Santoro)

      I’m not exactly sure where I should write to and how much money I should send to help me recover these important family history docs. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. -AJ
