    It seems it has been almost a year since anyone has commented but I, too, are looking for information regarding a DeAngelis. My mother’s grandmother was Candida DeAngelis (b. Sep 1873 per the US Census). She married Dominick Testa in Italy. From her Ellis Island arrival record (1899) she left Falvaterra to meet up with her husband and had all but her oldest child in tow. Definitely know I am related to other De Angesis cousins through DNA matches but none note a Candida among their ancestors. Any help appreciated!

    Irene Lombardi born in 1891 in Falvaterra. Married Giovanni Battista Sebastinelli.
    She’s my great grandmother. I see there are quite a few Lombardi’s living in the village. I’m trying to find out more information on her.

    been awhile and just found this page trying to research genealogy. as many of the above my grandfather and his parents were also from Falvaterra (Luciano–Antonio, Lorenzo), I’m sure i grew up with many of the cousins and siblings, children of the family names above from Barrington, RI. Planning a trip next year (2020) to Italy and staying close to Naples will be travelling to Falvaterra and hoping to obtain copies of records. Will be happy to pass along info to the families above (DeAngelis/Gasbarros)

      Hi Steve,
      My mother was a DeAngelis. I know we had relatives in Barrington on Middle Highway and I also remember Katherine. However, I don’t know how they were related. Do you have any information about ancestors? My grandparents came here with the Gasbarros. I visited Falvaterra but was unable to get information from the town.

      • Stephen ha detto:

        just seeing your reply Linda, (blame the pandemic). My grandparent’s were off of middle highway and i did go to high school with a few of the DeAngelis’s. As far as research, I’ve only gone as far as my grandfather’s parents here in Falvaterra…difficult to track historical records without being there I reckon. We had high hopes pre pandemic to be outside of Naples….maybe next year.

    I am trying to find out information about my grandmother. We believe she was born on January 1, 1900 in Sezze, Italy with the name of Anisanta Rutila but adopted by the Del Signore family of Falvaterra and became known as Julia Del Signore. She grew up in Falvaterra before coming to the US. Any information you can provide would be helpful.

    Hi! My grandparents were born in Falvaterra. They were Umberto “Albert” Piccirilli and Giovannina “Rosa” Andreozzi of Barrington, RI. My father’s godfather was a Gasbarro who married an Andreozzi and came to Providence, RI. Other ancestral names are De Angelis, Ceccarelli, d’Alessandris, all from Falvaterra. I have just come into possession of some very old photographs, unfortunately mostly without names. I would be very interested in making contact with relatives in Falvaterra who might be able to identify these photos. Would like to hear from anyone interested in these surnames.

    I are looking to trace back some of our heritage. Is the “DeAngelis” surname common in Falvaterra? Our relatives left this village and settled in Barrington, Rhode Island in the United States. Please let me know if you have anymore information on the DeAngelis family, as I am trying to connect to relatives there.

    My grandfather was Luigi Gasbarro, born in Falvaterra. His brother was Antonio Gasbarro, they were the sons of Francesco Gasbarro and Teresa Lombardi of Falvaterra. Luigi and Antonio immigrated from Italy to the United States in 1898. We are looking to trace back our heritage and learn more about our family. We are trying to contact relatives in Falvaterra because we are visiting the area this upcoming week. Is there any way to get more information or is there someone I can contact regarding this matter?
