Carlo Felitti - Vietri di Potenza

Postby Felitti-Trimarco » 18 Sep 2008, 00:14

Hello again!

I'm new to the site, but I'm absolutely loving all of the great advice I've been getting! I've been doing Italian genealogy for a fews years but am learning that I'm still pretty green when it comes to knowing even the basics. I thought I might try posting another issues and seeing what anyone may come up with.

My great great grandfather was named Pasquale Felitti (born 1869). He came to the United States from Vietri di Potenza around 1888. He opened a pharmacy in East Harlem around the turn of the century (first at 2219 1st Avenue, and then at 2222 1st Avenue, the "Farmacia del Vesuvio" at the corner of 1st Avenue and E 114th St.). My research has uncovered that Pasquale had 12 siblings. I have been able to trace the lineage of all of them but one: his brother Carlo Felitti. I did find Carlo's death, which occurred in Vietri di Potenza. Beyond the date of his death I know very little. However, I do know that he did have a family of his own that eventually settled down somewhere in Salerno. Years ago, I had relatives that maintained contact with this branch of the family, but the connection has been since lost and I have very little information to go on. I do have the following however:

Carlo Felitti was born May 30st, 1867 in Vietri di Potenza. He died March 10th, 1910, also in Vietri di Potenza and at the time was single. He did come to the USA at one point with his two sisters Teresina and Angiolina, but he did not stay (actually, I never found the ships log for his return trip). Carlo may have been a baker and possibly married a woman named Vincenzina. They likely moved to Salerno and may have had a son named Frank Felitti
(who may have later been a teacher of some sort). Carlo and Vincenzina Felitti may have also had a daughter named Vincenzina Felitti. She may have married a man whose last name was Ferrigno, who was also a baker. The family may have been associated with "The Ferrigno panificio". I have an address from a relative that said he once visited. It was "S.P. a Corte, 31 in Salerno". I don't know if this is even a complete address or an address at all, but I thought I would throw it out there. It's said that my relative visited these people around 1955, althought very little is remembered. I was told at one point that this bakery was very prosperous, particularly after WWII when there were many soldiers around.

My goal is to find out if there are any descendents from this line still living in Italy today and to get in tough with them. Not speaking Italian, I have not pursued it at all. Does anyone have any advice on how I might do rediscover this line? Does anyone know if this bakery is still in existence? Anyone out there recognize this story or recognize any of the names?

Thanks so much for reading my posts and many thanks in advance for any help you can provide me with!

You could request a "Certificato Anagrafico Di Stato Di Famiglia Storico Originario" from the 2 comunes to find any additional relatives especially in Salerno.

Thanks for the reply! This sounds interesting. I don't know much about this however. Can you tell me more about what this means exactly and how one goes about doing so?

THANKS!

You need to write a letter to the Office of Vital Statistics for Salerno, the certificate gives birth information for the head of the family, Carlo Felitti, plus his wife and children. I would also request the same from Vietri di Potenza just in case they never moved, or his family was all born in Vietri di Potenza. Here is a format for a letter requesting information in Italian. http://www.italylink.com/vitalrecords/vitalrecords.cgi

Thanks for the information! I didn't know such documents were available. Does anyone know how I might go about seeing is this bakery is still around or what happened to it? I believe is was:

"The Ferrigno panificio"
"S.P. a Corte, 31 in Salerno"

Thanks!

There are no Ferrigno Panificio listed inthe www.paginebianche.it and the Paginegialle.it but there are 27 Panifico bread stores listed. So just puit in Panificio and see if any of the them have a corresponding address to what you have. =Peter=

Don't know about the Ferrigno bakery but perhaps the correct address was:

San Pietro a Corte, 31
Salerno

To which message in particular were you referring to Domenic? I admit that I don't follow your point.

If you go to the www.paginebianche.it and clcik on the title PagineGialle.it and put in the yellow format the word PANIFICIO and under that put in SALERNO and then clcik CERCA there will appear a listing of 44 Panificio (bread bakeries in Salerno) which you can review for the name Ferrigno and ther address you furnished. =Peter=

Hi Trimarco, I think this is your family information from the Vietri Births Database, based on Carlo and Pasquale having the same parents. Pasquale had 11 siblings. Please let me know if this is the right family and I will have a look through for other records in the database.
Hope this helps.

Hello! Wondeful! Yes these are my Felitti ancestors. I have their birth certificates photocopied. Where did you get this information from? I had no idea that there was a Vietri database somewhere. I'd love to hear any other information you can find for me. I do have the death certificates for most of these people. I believe about 5 of them stayed in Italy (and died at very young ages). Carlo and Felice died in Vietri as adults.

I look forward to talking to you more and learning more about this database! Again, thanks for this wonderful information.

From about 1600 to 1800 there are church records (hand written in Latin), and distant cousins from Las Vegas, Steve and Anita Canfield have made photograph copies of all of the church records.
From about 1800 there are community held records (hand written in Italian located at the town/village hall of which about 1800 to 1900 have been put into an access database by Rocco Buongermino.
Found Felice record, but no Carlo.
