Rescigno's in Avellino

Postby jrescigno » 03 Mar 2010, 04:40

Hi - I live in NY, USA and planning on visiting Italy in May - I'd love to know if there are any Rescigno's still residing in Avellino - My Grandparents, Marco and Lena Rescigno, arrived in the USA approximately 1898. Thanks for any info.

Currently there are 9 persons residing in Avellino who are listed in the telephone directory with the RESCIGNO surname.

Go to www.paginebianche.it for the 9 lisitngs. (first line name, second line Avellino (this spelling covers only the City of Avellino but if you put inthe initials AV this will cover the entire province of Avellino) =Peter=

Wow! You have (had) a very large Rescigno family. I believe I had counted at least 15 or 16 children. I do not personally have information for your family but there are many other family members doing research on your family. I think there are also several trees on Ancestry and many listings on Rootsweb, and LDS Family Search. You should have no problem finding family members who would be in contact with those in Italy.

E-mail addresses in Italy are hard to come-by and it depends upon the person. Directory assistancve is sparse! When you snail mail though that may open the door to people furnishing you with their personal e-mail address. =Peter=

thanks so much for all this info. I had been able to find my Grandfather, Marco Rescigno's info on his passage to the USA but had not found my Grandmother's information --- When I researched your info, I found out that my Grandmother, used her maiden name, Covino, on her passage to USA. That is very nice of you to assist me with the info.

Hi --- if anyone out there would be able to tell me the best way to travel from Naples to Morra de Sanctis, that would be great. I haven't been able to locate any potential family members there but since I will be in Naples in May, I would like to visit Morra de Sanctis to at least get the "feeling" of where my roots are. Thanks so much...Joyced

Dear JRescigno, can you tell me if you know the approx. birthdate of Marco or the names of his parents? Are you sure he is from Avellino?

I have a listing for a Marco Rescigno b. 1865.
