Capone from Avellino, possibly Mirabella- please help!

Postby kahuka » 06 Nov 2008, 02:14

Ciao a tutti! I am helping my friend research his family from Italy. We know that his great-grandfather, Antonio Capone, was born in 1905, in the province of Avellino, possibly the town of Mirabella. He then moved to the USA (Boston) around like 12 years after 1905.

Antonio's father was named either Savino/Saverio. Is anyone here a member of that Ancestry website that researches stuff like this? Would anyone mind please running those names through the system? Thank you so much!

Grazie mille!!

Are you talking about Mirabella Eerclano (AV)? If so you can check the microfilm at your nearest FHL library which goes from 1809 to 1900 for all births,marriages and deaths. =PETER=
