Hello,

I am in search of my Cassell line from Italy, believed to have been in Naples, Italy. My great-grandfather was Domenico Francisco. His father was Pasquale or Paschale Cassell (unsure of correct itilian spelling) , mother was Maria Edmondi?. I am looking for any help on finding my ancestors to continue my family tree.
Thank you to anyone that can assist me :)

Just a note on the spelling; Pasquale and Francesco are the typical forms of these names.
I would hypothesise that your surname has also been changed somewhere along the line. Purely going by the phone book, www.paginebianche.it, in Napoli there are 34 Caselli and no Cassell or Casselli or anything else similar I tried.

I hope that helps.

If you know for sure the family comes from the Naples area of the Capania region thenthe correct spelling is caselli, howver there are three town in Emilia Romagna, Lombardia and Piemonte regions that have Casselli persons listed as residents in those regions. Please specify the town of origin so that you know where to go for your further research. Peter

Carol,

You didn't mention if your Mom was in the U.S. If she was what year did she arrive and where did she live? The 1930 Census records are available and are very helpful if the person was in the US before 1930.

Wow thank you all for ur post.
Sadly I dont know what area they all came from, on records here Dominick only stated Italy. He used many dates of arrival in the US. Changed his age alot lol. As for Dominick Wife she was born Canada. It was told to me by one of Dominick daughter (Who knows no info on where in Italy etc) that Dominck came to the states alone and had 2 sisters living back in Italy. Dominick died 1932 Death report says he was born Italy 1872. (unsure that this date is correct giving he was said to be 60 @ time of death in 1932 but when he married in 1929 he said he was 66).
I was hoping this would be much easier giving how kids was named in Italy (After parents parents etc. The name varyation dont help But I didnt think Pasquale would be all that hard to track :( I know that Dominico parents was both dead by 1929 when Dominick Married.

Thank again all for any help u can give me
