Petroccia / Petruccia of Paduli

Postby vickir76 » 07 Feb 2009, 19:54

I am looking for information on

Giovanni Petroccia's Family

The only thing I know of him is that 2 of his daughters emigrated to the USA in the early 1900's and a niece of Giovanni.

His daughters are:

Filomena Petroccia Born in 1886
Alessandra Petroccia born in 1891

Their cousin, Giovanni's niece, is Alexandria Giardiello born about 1877 married Nicoli Spagnola and had a daughter or step daughter Rosina Meo with her when she emigrated to the USA.

Any and all information would be appreciated, photos or scanned images and the records in Paduli would be preferred.

Thank You

Vicki

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Do you have ship's manifest info on these people? Can you tell me where they settled when they got here? Are you looking just for Italian records?

If so, the Family History Center has the civil records for Paduli from 1809 to 1860. This will not help you with records for the girls, but might show Giovanni's birth record.

Yes I have the manifests for them.

They settled in Berks County, PA

I am looking for information pre-emigration, because I have most of the files post-emigration and those that I do not have I just need to make a trip to get at the courthouse and cemetery.

Thanks for the information, I will have to look for file online.

You can send for the girls birth record, would be helpful if you also have the mothers name, but an exact birthdate with the fathers name should do.

The simplest method is the following interactive form letter:

Letter to Stato Civile
