Italian Surname anglicized to Campbell

Postby MarthaD » 30 May 2009, 01:49

has anyone a suggestion what Italian surname might have been anglicized to Campbell?

I'm looking for the roots of a Louis Campbell, born 1890 in Ortucchio, Italy.

is in Geneva, New York in 1920 census, came to US about 1900-1905.

father's first name might possibly be Climan? Surname Camgano? census taker had terrible handwriting!

Thanks.

Hi, this is a very "wild card", but how about Cambelli. There is only one place with that surname on the Gens Italia cognome site, and it is in the Roma area.

Hope this isn't a red herring.

Hi!
My guess: Ciampella
Valarie

Have you ruled out this census?
possible? 1910 census

the surname most probably is CONTESTABILE or CAMPOLI or Campizzari... I believe that someone of this records abt 1910 census could be abt your ancestor:

thanks to all who've responded......I, too, have been drawn to that same 1910 record and cannot decipher the handwriting. The individual listed with Louis might be his father.....could it really be that the name is Climan? or is there another equivalent?

Does anyone know if any of the suggested surnames are in or around Ortucchio?

Thanks.
Martha :D

Hello suanj :D !
Thank you.
That 1910 census in Seneca really had some great clues.

Boy, you guys are good.....I just started this late yesterday afternoon for a co-worker.

yes, I'm pretty sure that's the right marriage record. he thought his gr-grandmother was a DeBenedictis. We didn't know for sure what Campbell had been anglicized from. I think Ciampella is a good bet.

I'll poke around some more on Ancestry and share this with him on Monday.

Thanks a REAL Lot!

as a side note.....is it the curse of a genealogical sleuther to always be able to find info on OTHER people's families and not one's own???

:lol:

It's derived from "campo bello", which means "beautiful land" in Italian.

There is a TV-commentator in Switzerland with this name.

I have a maternal grandmother CAMPBELLO from Lanciano, Chieti, Abruzzi who migrated in the early 1900's to New Brunswick, Canada. Hope this helps.
