Furillo / Fiorello - Which Sant'Angelo?

Postby vickir76 » 24 Aug 2009, 13:54

I am trying to locate records for the Furillo / Fiorello side of my family tree.

On Michael's ship manifest it states that he came from Sant'Angelo but I can not make out which one. I narrowed my search down to the following two cities

Sant'Angelo all'Esca, in the province of Avellino
Sant'Angelo d'Alife, in the province of Caserta

I am trying to figure out which one of the two might be my better choice to start searching for his family.

Brief Bio:
Michele Fiorello was born 17 Jan 1878 in Italy and died in 1951 in Pennsylvania. Per his marriage license his parents were Anotonio and Rosaria Fiorello. He emigrated to the USA with a cousin Michele Iannuzzi from Naples on 21 Feb 1901 arriving in Ellis Island NYC on 6 Mar 1901 heading to Reading, PA to Uncle Guiseppe Penta and his wife Rosie. The Penta's emigrated to the USA about 13 Mar 1864 aboard the ship Bretania.

Also if any websites are available for either of these towns or providences that can assist me with my search I would appreciate that help.

I am posting the manifest for reference.

http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0009

It looks to me that the town is Sant'Angelo all'Esca and his name on the manifest is spelled Fiorillo.
Are you sure of the correct spelling? Fiorillo is much more common in Campania than Fiorello and Furillo does not exist in Italy today.

Not to worry mj :D ,
I hadn't looked at the Ellis Island version of the manifest
Great catch on the original spelling of his surname!
Shame neither of Michele's military registration cards gave his birthplace.
Couldn't find his cousin, Michele Iannuzzi, military registration cards in Berks county.
Fingers crossed that puppetgrass can locate Michele Fiorillo & family's records in Sant'Angelo all'Esca

puppetgrass,

If you think Sant'Angelo all'Esca may be correct, you could also review your family’s records on microfilm.

Your nearest Family History Center has records for Sant'Angelo all'Esca on microfilm.
The cost is about $6 mo (rent), you’ll need to go to the center to order & view them.

Thank you both for your help. I originally thought is was Sant'Angelo all'Esca but the family keeps saying he was from the Caserta area, but no one can tell me where this infomation came from.

Our family had an extensive family tree done. The name is Fiorillo, and our history goes back to the 1500's and the creation of the Comedia Dell Arte. The town is Sant Angelo D'Alife as well as Sant Angelo Raviscanina. These are just outside Caserta. For more informtion, e-mail me at ffurillo@cityofmadison.com

Pucinello was created by Silvio Fiorillo. Scaramouche was created by Moliere's instructor, Tiberio Fiorillo, and Giovanbattista Fiorillo created Trapalino.

My father, Bud Furillo, was a famous sportswriter and radio personallity.

We always thought our name was Fiorello too, until the truth was found out!

Cool. I am friends with a number of your cousins on Facebook. You must be related to Carl Furillo, the right fielder for the Brooklyn Dodgers. He came from Reading, Pennsylvania. I do recognize your relative's names from the family tree we had done.

Ps. I am currently becoming a dual citizen of Italy!

Frankly
