Fuoco/Foco from Carpanzano

Postby rfoco » 19 Aug 2009, 16:54

I am researching my grandfather's family and am at a standstill. His name is Giovanni Foco (born October 14, 1920) and his father was Antonio Foco and mother was Luisa Fuoco. He had five siblings named Guisseppe, Nunziata, Vincenzina, Domenico and Maria (I'm not sure of their birth order).

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to IG!
Can you tell us what you have collected in way of US records, that way we don't duplicate records already found. What state did they immigrate to?
Have you located manifest? Census? Draft registration? Do you have the mother's maiden name?

Husband Antonio, wife Luisa....would this be the correct manifest?

All I know is that my grandfather Giovanni immigrated to Canada in 1951. I don't know anything about his parents except that his father, Antonio died young. As far as I know Antonio and Luisa did not leave Italy. I would like to find out more about the family in Italy such as death, marriage etc. but I'm not quite sure where to look.

If I want to find out about my greatgrandfather/grandmother for whom I only know their names (Antonio Foco/Luisa Fuoco) can I write to them with a date range for date of birth instead of an exact date. The problem with my search is that we are not sure if our name is Foco or if it was change from Fuoco. The story is that it was changed but on every document that I have Antonio was always a Foco and Luisa was always a Fuoco?

Yes you can use an approximate decade (1-10 years). I read this some time ago that they will entertain a year range of a decade when searching their Ufficio di Stato records in the comune. You might want to offer to pay them something extra as a courtesy since they might have to search more than usual. Do not send any money but make the offer with your letter. =Peter=
