Oliveto Family

Postby patfan1 » 13 Sep 2008, 15:32

My father immigrated as a baby to the US from Avigliano, Potenza, in 1901. I believe the surname was Oliveto. I can't seem to find anyone with that name in Avigliano today. Any help would be appreciated.

You are very welcome. :D

Do you have all the US documentation you need?

The rest of the family may have moved to a larger city in Italy for work. This link will give you some idea of what towns they might have moved to (or where they were originally from.)

I found a Vin ent Oliveto for you in Avigliano who owns a coffee bar in Avigliano.

Go to www.mangeruca.com and write a potential relative form letter in Italian to him at:
Bar Gema SNC
Vincenzo Oliveto
Comune di Avigliano 85021 (PZ)
Basilicata region, Italy

I hope he responds and is a relative.Please keep me in the loop. =Peter=
