Pepe family in Town of San Bartolomeo in Galdo

Postby dapape » 07 Aug 2009, 18:12

I'm new to this forum and am looking for help finding ancestors in Italy of Raffaele and Antonio Pepe, born in Town of San Bartolomeo in Galdo in the Province of Benevento around 1860-1870. Both came to the US in the 1890's

Any information or sources that I could look into would be much appreciated.

thanks
David Pape

Do you know the names of the parents?
Were they married here in the US or Italy?
Do you have their spouses first and maiden names?
Have you made any request to the town of origin for records pertaining to birth or marriage?

This is what I know:
Raffaele Pepe, born abt 1874
and
Filomena Gallo, born abt 1880
married in abt 1898
Had son Peter, 1899
Antonio Pepe, brother of Raffaele, born abt 1862, never married
all of these events in San Bartolomeo in Galdo
Brothers came to US in the 1890's at different times on diff ships (I have these records). Filomena and Peter came to US in 1901.

I do not know their parents names.

I have not yet written to the town, as I'm trying to figure out exactly what office or person to send the request to.

Thanks for any advice!

Is this the correct family on the US census?
If so, perhaps it is possible to locate the exact dates of birth for Raffaele
and Filomena, also, there is a ships manifest of 1908 listing the entire family coming back to the US, which shows Vincenzo/Vincent as being US born:

Thanks for that contact information - which method (email, fax, or letter) do you think would be most effective? I will work on a letter as soon as I get a chance.

I do have a copy of that census info. By the way, on that list Tony Pepe was my Grandfather.

I was not aware of the 1908 ships manifest! Did you find that that on the Ellis Island website? (that's where I found the others).

Thanks for this information,
Dave
