    I have traced my grandmother’s family back to my 5th Gr Grandparents in Teggiano,Italy
    My grandmother Raffaela Galiano (Gagliano) was born 25 Dec. 1876 In Teggiano.
    Her father was Michele, mother Benedetta Vertuccio.
    I am looking for information about my grandfather,Michele, and his wife Benedetta.
    Family lore is that Benedetta died while giving birth to twins, and my grandmother was sent to live with
    relatives in Brooklyn, NY.
    It took me 8 years of research to find where Raffaele was sent to live in the USA, and with whom.
    I was able to trace her birth to Teggiano, and traced the family to my 5th gr. grandparents.
    Any help on the Gagliano’s or Benedetta Vertuccio will be greatly appreciated.
    thank you

  10. Janet says:

    My Grandfather, Nicola LoBuglio, said he was born in Teggiano, he always had a picture of the patron Saint from that town, Saint Cono. I need to get his birth records. I looked at the Ellis Island website and I think I found the date he arrived in USA. The date and the age he would have been that he told us he arrived here seems to fit but not positive it’s the same person. The Ellis Island information says his “last place of residence” was Ciggiano, which is very close to Teggiano. Maybe he moved from Teggiano to Ciggiano before traveling to Naples to leave for USA, not sure.

    Can you advise me how I would go about getting his birth record? Thank you, Janet

  11. Pat says:

    I hope to hear from you soon.

    I’m trying to find out information on my great grandarents Antono DeNigris and
    Antonia Cimino(maiden name). They were born in Teggiano, Italy from the province
    of Salerno. They emigrated to America in the late 1890’s. I would like to know
    if there are famiy census records listing members of their families from birth.
    Also if there is any photo of them as young people from chilhood or marriage
    which took place in Teggiano too. I don’t speak or understand the Italian language. Please translate in English. I don’t know how to get records from
    baptism, etc in Teggiano.

    Antonio was born on May 11, 1874 in Teggiano to Francesco DeNigris and Filomena
    Manzolillo. Antonio had some siblings, but don’t know how many or names of them.
    Please tell me their names, date of birth and if stayed in Ieggiano or immigrated
    to America or Argentina.

    Antonia Cimino was born September 13, 1878 in Teggiano to Michele Cimino and
    Maria Scultore. Antonia had a brother, but don’t know his name. He was two
    years younger I belived. Don’t know brother stayed in Teggiano or came to America.

    Any information on my great grandparents, Antonio and Antonia would be most
    helpful from any siblings, cousins,etc. and the office of records to contact
    for all the lines of DeNigris and Cimino that church baptism records would have
    as far back as possible. Thank you. Please reply back.

      Hi,I’m Daniel from France, you’re searching for Antonia siblings, Michele and Maria had much more than two children’s, they’ve seven son’s and two daughters, one of them was my grandfather, his name is Vito Cimino, born in 1896 maybe in Teggiano or Salerno, he came in France in 1922 and later had two sons and one daughter with his wife Carmen Longo, the first son is Antoine, the daughter is Lisette, and the last son is Michel. In 1996, Vito died, so maybe it’s what you’re looking for because my grandfather Vito had always said that some members from his family leaved teggiano for America but we don’t know who. If it can help you let me know and send me your reply. Ciao

      • Mark says:


        I thank you for your reply. I hadn’t looked at messages in long time.
        I don’t think your grandfather Vito Cimmino is related to my great grandmother
        Antonia Cimino for I heard that my great grandmother Antonia Cimino only had one younger brother who was 2 years younger than her and no other siblings. Also her
        mother, Maria Scultore had died when my great grandmother was 4 years old. If you have any other information that can be helpful, please let me know.
