    My great grandmother Clementina Izzi was from Sesto Campano. She and her husband Beniamino Antonio Zarli moved and lived in Toulon, France. Beniamino’s mother was Giacinta Capaldi and I believe Antonio Zarli.
    I am hoping someone may know of them. Is it hard or easy to send for information about the families?
    Thank you all for any help you can give.

    Hi –

    I am looking for birth records for my great grandfather Vincenzo James Vollucci born Nov. 19th 1879 in Sesto Campano (died in Rhode Island, US). Also, birth/death records for my great, great grandfather Eugene Vollucci born 1857 and died 1884 in Sesto Campano. I am trying to trace my family name (Vollucci) back as far as possible, but I don’t have any more information beyond my great, great grandfather Eugene Vollucci living and dying in Sesto Campano.

    Appreciate any and all help!

    Best,

    I am Looking for the birthplace of my grandmother, grandfather, aunt and uncle. They might have been from Roccapipirozzi, Sesto Campano or Agnone. Grandmother: Eustashia Melone born around 1879 / 1880. Grandfather: Antonio Di Santo / De Santo / De Santi not sure as he spelled it different ways. Aunt: Guiseppa (maGuiseppa) DiSanto born July 24, 1903 in Italy. Uncle: Dominic Martone was born around 1885. My grandmother had a sister Angela Melone who was married to a Pasquale Marciano also from the same town.

    I do not know if my grandmother or grandfather had any other brothers and sisters, or if I have any relatives still living in their ancestral homeland.

    My family and I will be in Italy in July 2014 and would like to visit the area of my ancestry.

    I would appreciate any information that you can forward to me.

    Thank You and forever grateful for any information that you can provide to me.

      Hi Roseann
      Not sure if this message will reach you but I think we are related. My grandparents were Dominic Marton and Guiseppa DiSanto Martone. Would love to get more family history from you if you have it. My sons and I just got our Italian citizenship this year.

        Ciao Alicia,

        My family and I visited our Melone cousins in Sesto Campano on July 2nd, 2019. By the end of the day we felt like we had known our cousins all of our lives. The hospitality we were shown was like no other and will always be remembered.

        My grandmother Eustachia Melone DiSanto had two sisters (Anna and Domenica) who stayed and raised their families in Italy. Anna’s daughter Philomenia moved to the US and lived with two of her daughter’s (Livia and Rena) in Rochester, NY. Philomenia’s married daughter Lidia Forte chose to live in Sesto Campano where she still lives today.

        I have other information of interest if you want to add to your family tree.
