I know this post is very, very old, but I am researching my CAPORALE roots. I do not recogonize Valle dell'Angelo from my research, as my family is from Acerra, provincia di Napoli. Where is Valle dell''Angelo? What CAPORALE have you found there?
Acerra is in Napoli province; Valle Dell'angelo in Salerno province; both in Campania region... For Acerra are in mormons center:
Registri ecclesiastici, 1607-1900 Chiesa cattolica. Parrocchia di Acerra (Napoli)
( a little off-topic here) I see you know a lot about italian names, and I was wondering what you mean by "nicknames"? I mean, what is the difference between a "nickname" and an actual surname? Does this apply all over italy/sicily, or just the town you mentioned?
Thanks (just curious... )

The family nicknames are different of the surnames: -the nicknames don't have official value;
-the nicknames are in local dialect and helpful only for to indentify a family branche in local town....
-they are applied especially in south Italy...
I am surprised to see the town of Valle dell`Angelo on here. The name that struck me the most is "Capozzoli". This name also extends into my family`s town of Castel San Lorenzo, which is probably about 20 kilometers west of Valle Dell`Angelo (approximately). Other names are Bruno, Passaro, and Donatiello, that seem familiar. There was a Capozzoli who "accompanied" a family member of mine. Perhaps they were married. However, unfortunately I lost the info, because I found it when I was researching my family name on Ellis Island, and came across it, when I was researching the "mispelled" version of my name. The date would have been around 1900-1907. I know it doesn`t help, but if you are researching the name, consider also looking in Castel San Lorenzo, Aquara, Felitto, and Laurino
I am an Andreiuolo and my great granfather and granfather were both born in Valle dell Angelo. My great granfather lived for twenty years in the USA (New York) where he married my great granmother Elena Coccaro who was an american born in St Louis, of italian heritage. After going back to Italy for several years the family finally settled in Brazil, where I come from.
HI! I'm Mary Rose Andreiuolo and my greatgrandfather, Giovanni Andreiuolo (17) and his wife, Philomena Peano (12) came to NYS aound 1870. I thought they came from northern Italy, but maybe they are from Salerno! There are now a few 5th generation Andreiuolos here in NY!
My family name is Petrone, and my family comes from Salerno. I don't know exactly from where in Salerno. My Grandfather moved to Brazil before the II World War and I know that one of his sisters moved to the States. I would like to find them since I also live in the States. My Grandfather name was Andreas Petrone.
I would appreciate any information.
