Chieffi/Cioffi family history

Postby Katersjax » 28 Sep 2009, 02:37

Angelo Chieffi, (abt. DEC 1894)

I am looking for the Chieffi/Cioffi family history and I do not know where to start. I am a descendant of the above named Angelo Chieffi. He ended up in Wilkes-Barre, PA if that helps.

I've located at least two other possibilities, can you provide more detail so that members searching can determine the correct Angelo.....
who did he marry, with maiden name, children born to the marriage and any birth dates you may have...even a year can be helpful.... :)

Katersjax!

As Tobias and Frank Angelo were brothers, and you said that they were your father's uncles, does that mean that one of your father's parents was one of their half-siblings or spouses? (Pellegrino Staffa, Salvine Stauff or Mary Caruso.) Salvine was my father's father. Angelo Chieffi's was common-law wed to Concetta (née) Giovino, but Concetta was married first to Sabino Staffa/Stauff. See my Ancestry.com "Orchard Supply" to see all my info. I can send an invite if you'll provide your email. Find mine at my personal site: www.stauffr.com

I have to ask my father for more information. Right now, he's visiting Italy lol. I thought it would be nice to put together a family tree for him next Fathers Day.

My grandmother was Concetta Chieffi Jacobs but I do not know exactly her lineage started. I would like to trace the Chieffi's back to Italy.

Since you want to do this as a gift perhaps if you send away to the town of origin in Italy where he was born and request the Ufficio di Stato Civile in that town (www.nonsolocap.it) type in name, click cerca and then click name once again for website. Scroll down to MUNICIPIO for the address.

Send form letter to the address under Municipio (www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/it ... etters.htm) for italian language form letters requesting his "ESTRATTO DI NASCIA"=long form with his parents names. Then in a separate letter also request CERTIFICATO DI STATO DI FAMIGLIA (family certificate in fathers full name for all immediate family members). There is no charge for these requests =Peter=
